While many were of course anxiously awaiting what was at least a rumored return of the Air Jordan III '88 "Black/Cement," today it is being reported by Nice Kicks that the much-anticipated JB makeup will in fact not be releasing.

Nice Kicks was relayed this information by a source at Jordan Brand, so it's fairly safe to say that you can lay that dream to rest, for the time being anyway. Delivery was initially expected to take place in late 2013/early 2014, as the Black/Cement Js were to showcase that coveted Nike Air branding on the heel.

Sorry, but we guess you'll just have to look forward to other Jumpman heaters in the coming months.
