First released in 1997, the Air Jordan 13 stands firmly as one of Tinker Hatfield’s most innovative creations.
The high-rising b-ball silhouette was originally designed using inspiration from the panther, offering players the responsiveness and speed of the animal. The OG also had a holographic eye and a panther paw-like outsole, offering a claw-like grip.
Now, the legendary trainer returns with a ‘Gym Red’/’Flint Grey’ colourway, offering a look that will make any Jordan enthusiast nostalgic. Smooth white leather covers the base, while soft grey suede mudguards feature on the sidewalls and midsole.
Sidewall panels add to the textural mix too, and they are coated in titular red for a bold look. Jumpman logos also appear throughout, plus there is a ‘23’ hologram badge on the ankle to celebrate the legendary number. Below, it is business as usual with Air cushioning in the sole unit.
The Air Jordan Retro 13 ‘Gym Red’/’Flint Grey’ is out on Saturday 1st May and is available on the size? launches app now. It comes in men’s sizes and is £165.
