What is the Air Jordan 3 “Katrina”?

 What is the Air Jordan 3 Katrina?

The Air Jordan 3 “Katrina” was a special version of the Air Jordan 3 Retro made exclusively for a charity auction designed to support the relief efforts if the  Hurricane Katrina aftermath. The Katrina Jordans are also the subject of a rumor – one that pins this super-rare pair of Jordans as a Retro release for this March. What was originally a blind guess continues to still be, because according to a dependable source jmadidas2001 on Niketalk, the rumor is flat-out untrue.

In fact, the imagery of the assumed 2014 release of the Katrina Air Jordan 3 that is currently floating around is actually an old photo from 2006, taken by mjo23dan on NT of a Jordan Brand product showcase/display. So, there you have it; the Air Jordan III “Katrina” is still a rumor – one that is pretty much debunked at this point – and the White/Cement Grey-Infrared 23-Black pair that is slated to drop on March 8th, 2014 is without question a completely different shoe. Thanks to Niketalk members for clearing this up.

I can assure you they are being released I'm the manager of a high end shoe store and they're pinned on my release calendar


@T_BAX Read the article, but does that DEFINITELY mean they aren't going to drop ? Seems really dumb if they don't, those are kinda dope.


The one on the shirt looks like basically like the fire reds, not a lot different going on.


Boutta buy some beaters on eBay and make a custom lol


Pretty obvious it wasn't ever going to be the Katrina III. Going along with the Infrared theme we see an Infrared 10 an Infrared 6 then surprisingly an Infrared 3... Pretty lame year if you ask me, heavy overuse of Infrared on everything they can put it on.


PEOPLE NEED TO READ. It does not confirm the release - it states the opposite.
