Only a few years ago the Air Force One reigned supreme as Hip-Hop’s go to sneaker. Back then if you threw on some white on whites, your outfit was automatically a go.

Fast-forward to 2013 and only the choicest Nike Uptown colorways are not considered official wet tissue. No hate, but when’s the last time you wore your Jay-Z inspired button up shirt with some Ones? We thought so.

Now the streets have a new undisputed sneaker in the Air Jordan 3. Originally released in 1988, the 3’s are a perfect balance of style and legacy. With Michael Jordan’s third signature shoe being retro’d again (multiple times) this year—the latest being the OG Fire Red colorway—it is only right we give you 11 reasons why the Air Jordan 3 is your new every day sneaker.

As always, feel free to agree or disagree in the comments, just have a damn good explanation.
