It’s only been two years since this Jordan Brand favourite got a reissue in the UK. Since then we’ve seen the Cement’s make a welcome return and there’s also the highly anticipated Black/Cement reissue later this year. Keeping up with the trend, Jordan Brand have decided to give the True Blue another reissue. This time around it’s a worldwide release, giving everyone who missed them two years ago and new comers alike, the chance to stock up.
As with the Cement reissue a couple of months back, JB have provided all the OG trimmings such as the original box, AJ III leaflet, tags and the ‘Cement’ patterned tissue paper. A good excuse to re-up on these holy grails for those who got stuck with the standard JB box last time (like you need an excuse anyway). Apart from a lighter more OG looking Cement print, nothing seems to have changed on these and you would be probably wise to expect the same quality as the Cement’s had from a few months back. It’s a shame Jordan Brand didn’t stick with the original catalogue image of this retro, which displayed the back of the tongue switched to red. That would of been as close to the original as you can get without a certain ‘Nike Air’ logo on the heel being in place.
Michael matched these up with his Wizards home and road uniforms back in the early 2000’s and proved once again, that this is just a timeless shoe that will always look good no matter how many years pass.
Available to pre-order over at Foot Patrol from Saturday 21st May.
