3.) Black Cement 3’s
The three’s are a personal favorite of mine. Dropping in 1988, they completely changed the sneaker industry. Before the three’s basketball shoes were solely built for performance *no pun intended. A guy buy the name of Tinker Hatfield aka the Michelangelo of sneakers decided to switch up this formula a bit, and add a more casual element to basketball sneakers. Complex magazine even refers to it as “The Shoe That Saved Nike”. The perfect mix of being casual while maintaining performance, and that’s why the cement three’s are this week’s number three.
