Air Jordan 13: An eclipsed colorway

Mar 31, 2022

The Air Jordan 13 is one of the most underrated Air Jordans out there. First released in 1997, these were some of the last Air Jordans Michael Jordan wore on the court. Designed by Tinker Hatfield, these shoes have always been overshadowed by other, more prominent silhouettes like the Air Jordan 1, Air Jordan 3, and other versions of these shoes. Though these shoes did find a place in the Trending sneakers for Men list in those days, initially they weren’t as popular as they ought to be. Nevertheless, these shoes eventually became quite popular in the 2000s.

The inspiration behind the Air Jordan 13

Tinker Hatfield closely monitored the way Michael Jordan played on the court. According to him, his moves around the court resembled a ‘cat’. At the same time, many of Mike’s friends called him ‘the black cat; for the same reasons. It is probably this very reason why Tinker designed the Air Jordan 13’s midsole resembling jaguar footprints, with a jaguar eye hologram on the upper to complete the look.

The Air Jordan 13’s release

Nike released a total of seven colorways of the Air Jordan 13 on release, of these five, were ‘Mids’ and two were ‘Lows’. These were later re-released. Each of the colorways in the Air Jordan 13 collection was given a unique name. For instance, Mike wore the ‘He Got Game’ colorway in his appearance in Spike Lee’s film. These were suede white and black upper with a red sole.

This is perhaps the most unique of all Air Jordan 13 drops. It comes with its signature black sole and a red Jumpman logo at the top of the shoe’s tongue. The top of the upper comes in signature white suede while a sunflower-like yellow across the bottom of the upper.
