Editor’s Notes: Thanks to the people over at BSTN, we’ve got our first detailed on-foot look at the “Dunk Contest” White Cement Air Jordan 3s.

The styling has been kept simple to highlight the kicks, with the Jordans being paired with only a pair of white socks and red tracksuit bottoms.

Alongside a trio of on-foot shots that capture the icy outsole, leather upper, and red and cement grey detailing on the sneakers, BSTN gets up close and personal with some of the finer details of the shoe.

The red stripe on the left outsole marks where Michael Jordan took off on his famous free-throw line dunk back in 1988, while the 3:51 on the inside of the heel cup denotes the time the clock showed when he scored the famous dunk. An upside down 147 on the tongue references Jordan’s winning score of 147-145 against Dominique Wilkins in the final round, while we also get detailed shots of the red insole.

Enjoy the detailed shots above and then head to BSTN’s Instagram here and website below for more information on the release.
