The debut of the Air Jordan 3 back in 1998 marked the beginning of the Tinker Hatfield era. Since then, the model has re-released in original and new colorways to continue its legacy.
Released as one of four OG colorways in 1988, the Air Jordan 3 “Fire Red” remains one of the most overlooked Jordan 3 releases, due to its limited number of retro releases. Prior to its last release in 2013, the “Fire Red” Jordan 3s were only retro’d one other time, back in 2007.
The Air Jordan 3 “Katrina” aka “Hall of Fame” was initially released in 2006 to support Hurricane Katrina relief efforts. In 2018, the shoe re-released to honor both Michael Jordan’s legacy in this humanitarian effort and his 2009 inclusion in the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.
