These Air Jordan III "Infrared 23s" are going to be a problem.

At first glance, you might mistake them for a pair of the "White/Cement" IIIs. But upon further inspection, you'll see that these are distinctly different. They feature more aggressive color blocking and look "meaner" than its OG predecessor. You can say the shoe is a happy marriage between the original "Black/Cement" and "White/Cement" colorways with "Infrared" thrown in for that "IT" factor.

Older shoeheads might dismiss this as another bastardization of a classic, but regardless of how you feel about this upcoming release, these are definitely on most sneakerhead's radar. Releasing next week on March 8, 2014, check out our exclusive pics below and ask yourself if these will be worth the effort to cop.
