One of the handful of sneakers often singled out as the most beloved in the Air Jordan line, the "Black Cement" Air Jordan 3 makes a triumphant return to retail this month. This time around, the retro carries OG designation, meaning 'Nike Air' branding will be featured on the heel for the first time since the first re-release in 2001. A lot of things have changed since Tinker Hatfield's creation first hit the market more than 30 years ago, but the Jordan 3 will once again rule All-Star Weekend.

Ahead of the highly anticipated release, the guys over at DnA Show put together a video comparison of "Black Cement" retros that have dropped over the years. Not only did they break down the sneakers you're familiar with, but they also examine a cleated football version and a Player Exclusive pair made for Michael Jordan himself. See how this year's release stacks up against its predecessors in the video above.

The "Black Cement" Jordan 3 releases Saturday, Feb. 17 at nike.com and Jordan retailers worldwide.
