Jordan 3 FAQ

Why is the Jordan 3 so popular?

The Nike Air Jordan 3 is so popular due to Michael Jordan’s history whilst wearing the sneaker and the AJ3 being the first ever mid-top basketball shoe.

How do I keep my Jordan 3s from cracking?

The Jordan 3 is a sneaker that will only crack due to its ageing. For example, the 1987 Jordan 3 White Cement is definitely a pair for display and appreciation. This is one of the multiple reasons why Nike has re-released our favourite colourways across the years with improvements to the durability. If you’re searching for a pair of Nike Air Jordan 3 White Cements to wear, we highly suggest picking up a pair of the latest Jordan 3 White Cement Reimagined.

Are you supposed to tie Jordan 3s?

Lacing your Jordan 3s is a personal preference whether you’re looking for a relaxed look or secure fit when wearing a pair. If you're playing basketball in your Jordan 3s in Australia, we’d recommend going with a tight lace up to ensure you have stability on the court.

Are Jordan 3’s unisex?

The Jordan 3 comes in Men’s and Women’s sizing.

Will Jordan 3 come back in stock?

The AJ3 is one of the most sought after Jordan models on the market.
