30 years on from Michael Jordan’s incredible 1988 season, in which he won the Slam Dunk Contest with that impossible dunk wearing those Nike Air Jordan 3s, Nike is going above and beyond to commemorate the GOAT’s special achievement.

While both the Air Jordan 3 “White Cement” and the Air Jordan 3 “Black Cement” have already dropped, we’ll soon be seeing the much-anticipated Nike Air Jordan 3 “Tinker.” The third model to release makes use of early sketches of the shoe, which still included Nike’s iconic Swoosh.

We saw a slightly modified version of the sneaker on Justin Timberlake during his Super Bowl halftime show performance back in February and, while this release differs marginally and won’t be as limited, it is an Air Jordan 3 making it well worth your time this weekend.

To help you keep track of all the releases, we’ve put together a quick guide on each of the models. Browse below for details on each sneaker, complete with external buy links.
