Air Jordan 3 was designed by the legendary sneaker designer – Tinker Hatfield. The Black Cement Jordan 3 was worn by Michael Jordan himself for the 1998 NBA All-Star Game. The silhouette of Air Jordan 3 was quick to become popular on and off the field.
For one lucky seller in 2017, the Black Cement was bought for $1200! That is some profit margin over a $100 retail price! Even in 2020, the sneaker is being resold for almost $500 which speaks to the colorway’s longevity.

This is the 2018 retro version of the 2001 Air Jordan 3 Black Cement. Over the course of time, black cement has become one of the hyped colorways. For the 2018 version, Nike didn’t change much and hence followed a policy of “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”.
The sneaker was released on Michael Jordan’s 55th birthday, February 17th, 2018, and sold for $200. Over the time period, the sneaker has gained an average resale value of $301. Moreover, ever since the news of the Air Jordan 11 Black Cement came into play, the 2018 Retro Black Cement also saw an appreciation in its resale value.
Now, how about we take a look at how some of the colorways of the Jordan 11 Low I.E. have performed over the years.

The Jordan 11 Low I.E. features the black cement colorway almost the same as it predecessors did. This Air Jordan 11 Low IE features a Black upper with elephant print overlays. We can see strong red accents on the tongue with the Jumpman logo branding.
A white midsole and a translucent outsole finish up the design on the Jordan 11 Retro Low I.E. Black Cement.
There’s not much difference from the previous versions except of course the silhouette but since the Jordan 11 Low I.E. is quite an underappreciated silhouette as we have seen from the above drops, I’m not sure if it’s going to perform as well on the market as the Black Cement’s predecessors did.
