Created by Tinker Hatfield, the ‘Cement’ print is one of the most recognisable designs from Jordan’s roster. Introduced by Michael Jordan in 1988, this iconic pattern has transcended the basketball courts, dominated streetwear and become a staple across the globe. With a host of releases planned for 2023, including all-new Jordan 1s and Jordan 3s, take a closer look at the best ‘Cement’ sneakers of all time.

Air Jordan 3 Retro White Cement Reimagined 2023

Arriving for the silhouette’s 35th anniversary, the Air Jordan 3 Retro White Cement Reimagined 2023 offers a fresh take on Michael Jordan’s game-worn sneakers from the 1988 All-Star Dunk competition. Returning true to form, the upper hosts Jumpman branding and ‘Cement’ details, while padding in the collar provides the comfort this silhouette is known for.

Air Jordan 4 Retro OG Cement

Bringing this legendary print to a whole new generation of fans, the Air Jordan 4 Retro OG Cement revives one of the four original colourways from 1989. White leather dresses the majority of the upper, while speckled accents appear on the mudguard and wings. Enhanced with an exposed Air unit underfoot, this AJ4 is one of the most sought-after styles from Jordan’s portfolio.

Air Jordan 3 Retro OG 2018 Black Cement

Staying true to the sihouette’s roots, the Air Jordan 3 Retro 2018 Black Cement pays homage to Michael Jordan’s original shoe with all-black overlays. Muted grey accents adorn the eyestays, tongue and sole, while classic “NIKE AIR” branding graces the heel — a detail that was missing from previous releases.

Mastering heritage style and timeless appeal, the Air Jordan 1 High OG White Cement brings the ‘80s classic into modern day. Adopting key elements from the AJ3, this updated rendition boasts ‘Cement’ overlays on the sidewalls, toe box and heel. Breathable perforations, advanced cushioning and contrast laces round off the design.
