The Air Jordan 13 Obsidian looks familiar, largely because of its older brother with the same colorway, but it’s something new for the year 2021. It’s nice to see the brand (occasionally) listen to us when we demand OG color blocking for non-OG colorways. It would be nice if they did it more often, but I guess we’ll take what we can get. Just please, if you don’t want this particular pair of Air Jordan 13s, leave them for the people that do.
