Being put on the vault doesn’t necessarily mean a life sentence, or at least that’s the case for the Air Jordan 3. Two years prior to 2016, the silhouette was announced to be off the display glasses for a while. However, the announcement of the Air Jordan 3 “Cyber Monday” proved that that was only a hiatus, more than anything. A few years after the release, it remains among the handsomest black and white shoes available for purchase.

The nickname is no indicator of this particular Jordan’s release date—it was on sale a month before the actual Cyber Monday. The pair was dubbed as such because it shares the color scheme of an earlier release, the Air Jordan 1 Cyber Monday, which was truer to its label than the AJ3 version. Its appearance can be described as simply black and white but in a recognizable silhouette. For those who like to fully utilize their footwear, this is an attractive offer; the shoes can easily transition from casual into an occasion that requires a tad more than that.
What appeals to each and every one is different, but those who dig clean and monochromatic aesthetics will be charmed by the Air Jordan 3 “Cyber Monday”. One benefit of having a black and white shoe is the ease with which they can be matched with most of your clothing, which can elevate them to becoming your wardrobe staples. The colorway is not unique as it has graced the Air Jordan 1 silhouette, so chances are, people who liked the scheme for the 1s will also pay money for the Cyber Monday 3s. The materials on the shoes impress way more than expected, with other Air Jordan 3s as basis. The laces are different, too, as they are rope-like rather than the flat laces fans have been used to. You can feel the premium leather on the upper as well as on the overlays and the collar. The shoes offer lots of padding for your comfort, and they fit true to size.
The quality of the materials may take the spotlight, but there have been complaints about the slightly sloppy craftsmanship on the Air Jordan 3 “Cyber Monday”. These are in the form of noticeable brush strokes on the sole and the glue stains on the shoes. The elephant print is also absent from the Cyber Monday, and many wished for its inclusion to maintain the spirit of the OGs. It’s easy to stain the soles as they are in pure white.
