Nike will be giving Roger Federer's signature tennis sneaker the Air Jordan treatment yet again.
After releasing the Zoom Vapor "AJ3" in a "White/Cement" color scheme, complete with Jordan Brand's signature elephant print, it looks like a "Black/Cement" iteration will be next in line. Arguably the greatest Air Jordan signature sneaker, the "Black/Cement" III and its crisp black leather take on the silhouette of the Zoom Vapor model, as evidenced by a teaser shared by Nike Tennis on Twitter.
No word yet on an official release date, but according to a cryptic tweet from well-connected sneakerhead DeadStockNYC, the newest Zoom Vapor "AJ3" will be dropping in the first half of November. Get ready because dudes are out here looking to eat.
