"The Air Jordan XIII's were released in 1997. This model was designed by Tinker Hatfield and was known for its cushioning along with allowing one's feet to breathe while wearing them. The inspiration for the XIII's was based on the Black Panther. Looking at the bottoms, the sole resembles the pads on a panthers paw. Also the sides on the upper are pitted just like a panthers cheeks from its whiskers. The final queue from the panther is the hologram on the back of the shoe which imitates a panther's eyes in the dark when light is shined at them. They were re-released in 2005, which coincided with the release of the Air Jordan XX shoe.Like the Air Jordan XI and XII, there IS a pair of Air Jordan's very similar to another, one consisting of blue and gray, and one blue and white."
The shoe will be released next week just in time for the holidays and it brings a smile to my face to see my favorite Air Jordan's grace the streets once again. I still have my OG pair in fairly good condition. They say 13 is a bad number...I seem to enjoy the number.
Shout out to YP for the quick thinking.
