What's in store for the Air Jordan 3 in 2017? Rumor has it the "Katrina" Air Jordan 3 and "Black Cat" Air Jordan 3 are both releasing later this year. Info about retail launches for these shoes circulated over the weekend via leaker accounts like @zsneakerheadz on Instagram and @psmirf on Twitter.

The information out there now suggests a November release for the "Katrina" Air Jordan 3 (136064-116) and a December release for the "Black Cat" Air Jordan 3 (136064-011). No more concrete Jordan release date info is available for either.

The "Katrina" Air Jordan 3 has never had a retail release before, although a pair was auctioned for charity to support relief efforts for Hurricane Katrina in 2006. Leakers confirming its 2017 release say the shoe will arrive with "Nike Air" branding on the back. Rumors about this shoe's release popped up in 2014, but the shoe never made it to retail that year.

The "Black Cat" Air Jordan 3 originally released in 2007 and hasn't been seen since. No imagery of these rumored 2017 releases exists—the photos here are of the originals of each.
