We have another detailed look at the upcoming Air Jordan 13 Retro in an alternate Black/ Red colorway that just doesn’t look as good as the original.
Leather quality and build all look great but I personally prefer the Playoff or original Black/ Red 13’s. Something else that I’m not too fond of with the latest batch of 13’s is the missing suede on the midsole… where did it go? I thought we were supposed to bring things back to basics and get the line back on track to what it once was. This was something I noticed on the upcoming Grey Toe colorway and hoped it was just because we were looking at the GS/ Kids size, but it looks as if that’ll be the same look that’s featured on the Men’s pairs as well.
Not a bad look, but they’ve done better in the past and I think it’ll be hard for them to top the greatness they’ve already achieved. I’d like to see some new colorways that stray far away from the Chicago days… but not another misshape like the Squadron Blue. Let me know what you think and stay tuned for more updates.
