The Air Jordan III 'Katrina' became a staple in the sneaker community a little over a decade ago when Jordan Brand announced that they will be auctioning off exclusive pairs of Air Jordan IIIs in support of those displaced by Hurricane Katrina. The sneaker never made it's way to the general public and was used solely for the relief efforts of one of America's most tragic natural disasters taking place in New Orleans, LA. Now, with it being the 30th year anniversary release of one of Mike's dopest silhouettes, the masses will be able to get their hands on a pair in the near future.
The 'Katrina' Air Jordan III which takes on a lot of similarities to the OG 'White Cement' color scheme and the coveted 'Fire Red' pair but its exclusivity is what made it highly sought after. The kicks feature a white tumbled leather base complete with 'Fire Red' accents that reach the sneaker's midsole, tongue lining, forefoot shoelace eyelets, and embroidered Jumpman logo located at the tongue of the kicks. Of course, the textured elephant print mudguard remains intact but there won't be any Nike AIR branding at the heel of the sneaker.
May 12th, the Air Jordan 'Katrina' will be available online and select Jordan Brand retailers for a price tag of $190. Drop your thoughts on the kicks in the comment section.
