Air Jordan III Fire Red's!


Yesterday, March 24, 2007, marked another milestone for all Jordan heads - both real and the wannabe's.

Yesterday, the world of sneaker pimpin' celebrated the release of the AJ III Fire Red colorway! And lucky for us Malaysians, they were made available here in KL…



And in line with the 'supporting your local traders' I got myself two pairs :) I have another 6 pairs purchased from the Philippines and will be arriving when my brother comes to KL before the 8th of April.

You would probably ask why that many pairs, no?

For starters, the AJ III first came out in 1988 and that year is a major point in my life; it was the year I became a MAN! *wink* *wink* I know 15 may be a tad bit early to become a man but hey, that was the time when I had my first taste of the wonders of a female anatomy hehehe

Besides the aforementioned personal reasons, this is the first time since 1988 that the AJ III is being retroed in this colorway. Strictly Jordan speaking, this pair holds too many stories that contributed to the legendary status for the man himself.

In 1988, MJ ‘announced’ his dominance of the league! He won his first MVP trophy, was the All Star MVP as well and of course, who could ever forget the Dunk Competition? He was also an All NBA 1s team and All Star starter with the most number of votes and won the Defensive Player of the Year. He ended the season with league-leading 35 points per game and 3.16 steals per game.

Who can ever forget this image of MJ flying from the free-throw line? Fuckin' classic!

And the pair he wore throughout this remarkable year? You bet your ass it’s them AJ III’s!

The Air Jordan III’s are the first of many AJ’s that were designed by the legendary Tinker Hatfield and when it released in 1988, it was truly a revolutionary shoes; it was the first Air Jordan to feature a visible air unit on the heel, the introduction of the now-famous Jumpman logo, an elephant print trim, and tumble leather for a luxury look. And of course, the III's are also famous for the humorus ads depicting Spike Lee as Mars Blackmon.

The worldwide release of the III’s yesterday also introduced 2 new colorways –White/Harbor Blue-Baby Blue for Women and White/Metallic Silver-Varsity Red-Chrome-Black, known as the AJ III Flip’s.

Besides the 8 pairs of Fire Red’s that I managed to get for myself, I also got two pairs each of the Harbor’s and Flip’s -_-

I know it's probably too much indulgence for one colorway but then again, how many times do you lose your virginity?
