Jordan Brand has a lot of plans for this years Retro lineup. With last years epic return of the Space Jam 11, the Jordan 5 and 12 models, it’s going to be tough to surpass last years numbers. This year however, they are aiming beat last year by bringing back one of the beloved models from Michael’s career, the Air Jordan 13.
Previously known as the Air Jordan 13 Low Navy, Jordan has decided to rebrand the name with the same look. This low-top version of the 13 comes in a familiar form of the classic Carolina Blue. Sitting atop a Black base, the blue stretches out to the insole and panther paw outsole. Also returning is the suede/nubuck combination on the tongue and heel rands for a premium feel.
The Air Jordan 13 are one of the better performing ones out of the line. Tinker Hatfield’s panther-inspired design, this Brave-Blue will have that reflective upper that is seen on the Flint Grey 13’s. For a comfortable ride, it houses two Zoom Air units underneath the heel and forefoot. Sectioned herringbone hits the hardwood for great traction for any player on court. Missing here is the iconic hologram that normally sits on the heel of the sneaker, but is not apparent on the lows. You have Jumpman branding on the tongue, heel, insole, and outsole of the sneaker. One thing we love about this colorway is the leather and suede material combination. Comfort has always been a highlight of the 13, so we look forward to seeing how these play on court.
The Air Jordan Retro 13 Low “Brave Blue” arrives in stores this Saturday, April 8th for $175.00 USD.
