White/Cement Grey/Black-Fire Red
May 12, 2018
The release of the sneaker is strategic. It is in line with the Jordan celebrating the Air Jordan III 30th anniversary. According to the company, the sneaker among other AJ3 versions will be released in a Quickstrike form. From the information confirmed by 23isback, the new sneaker is likely to be added some more features such as adding “Nike Air” to the shoe.
From the mages leaked by the company, 23isback can confirm there will be no notable difference from the original version of the Katrina. So for those who had seen it in 2006, it is actually the same colourway minus the “Nike Air” branding. But just like the rest of the Jordan Brand releases, the new release will definitely be a sneaker to watch this spring and summer. The quality of the kick and the colour scheme is definitely something to look out for. In fact, the new sneaker is expected to be an instant sell-out upon release.
Air Jordan 3 “Katrina” will be dressed in White, Cement Grey, Black and Fire Red colour scheme. It is the original colourway that produced the original sneaker, and thus we can easily identify with it. But what interest most sneakerhead is the how the combination has been done to produce an incredible looking kick. From the images released by the company, upper is dominantly White which also extends on most of the midsole. Cement Grey covers around the heel and the front mudguard. The red detailing is placed on the midsole’s heel, on the tongue Jumpman Logo and behind the tongue. To finish off is the grey outsole.
Beyond the colour scheme, sneakerheads will also be excited by the quality of the material used for the construction of Katrina iteration of AJ 3. The upper is constructed from tumbled leather for absolute comfort while soft padding keeps the feet cool and dry during hot weather. The sole is made from highest grade of rubber for absolute traction while walking, hiking or just playing basketball even on slippery grounds. So the quality of the sneaker is top notch, and value for money is a guarantee.
Air Jordan 3 “Katrina” will drop on May 12, 2018, according to Jordan release dates 2018. The sneaker will be available at select Jordan Brand stores and Jordan.com.
