In the sneaker world, terms like “iconic” and “GOAT” are tossed around a lot these days. Name an Air Jordan shoe from the `80s or `90s, and there will usually be a cadre of hardcore fans who will argue that it is the greatest Jordan of all time. There is one model, however, that stands out above the rest; a model so timeless, so classic, so smooth that sneakerheads of all ages tend to agree that it is most definitely the GOAT. That model is the Air Jordan 3 “Black Cement.” It’s a shoe that the man himself, Michael Jordan, only laced up once in the NBA — and it wasn’t even a regular-season game. MJ broke out the Black Cements for the 1988 NBA All-Star Game on Feb. 7, 1988 – held appropriately enough in Chicago. In front of 18,403 fans, MJ dazzled the home crowd with 40 points, 8 rebounds, 3 assists, and 4 steals.
