With the hype of the Jordan 3’s return slowly winding down, I couldn’t help but address a common issue in the sneaker loving community, the epic debate between “Elephant” print and “Cement.” I’ll start this off with a FACT: The crackle print on the Air Jordan 3 was inspired by elephant skin, NOT cement (Concrete, technically), hence, the term “Elephant” print. However, many people use the phrases Black/Cement or White/Cement when describing Jordan 3’s. Initially, these phrases were used in reference to the color description of the shoe. Black and Cement Grey or White and Cement Grey. Over time, with the similarities between the look of the elephant print and cracked “cement,” these descriptions have become misinterpreted as referring to the print of the shoe as Cement, which is incorrect. The term “cement” in the nickname is strictly in reference to the Cement Grey color on the shoe.
Two of the industry’s most well known sneaker loving artists have decided to join forces this Friday in honor of the Black/Cement Jordan 3 release. The homies Ree (SN’EADS) and Mark (KITH) have agreed to shut down the internets on Friday with Cement Jordan 3 inspired art. I can’t wait. If you’re a fan of the Jordan 3, Friday should be pretty epic. Stay tuned.
Tired of waiting? Waiting for June 4th? Waiting in line? Waiting for someone to hook you up?

Your mind does not deceive you. Yes, this is actually a cake. And it could only have been made by someone who truly understands the passion one shares for sneakers…and cake. My girlfriend. She made me this cake this weekend for my birthday. I was amazed at how much detail was put into it, from the stitching around the toebox to the texture of the laces, not to mention all of the elephant print. I am truly blessed and thankful. More detailed pictures coming soon! Stay tuned!
Eat Good. Stay Fresh.
