Air Jordan 13 Reviews

The Air Jordan 13 is Michael Jordan’s thirteenth signature basketball shoe. The shoe originally released in 1997 as Michael Jordan and the Bulls conquered the NBA again with their 2nd three-peat.

Tinker Hatfield was inspired by Jordan’s “Black Cat” nickname to design the Jordan 13. The outsole is meant to resemble a panther’s paw and the holographic jewel on the heel, a panther’s eye.

The AJ 13 is another standout on-court performer. The Air Jordan 12 and 13 are forces to be reckoned with on-court and still perform just as well as some of today’s sneakers. They feature excellent herringbone traction, a carbon fiber torsional shank for support, and heel and forefoot Zoom units for cushion. 

The Jordan 13 got another boost in notoriety after their appearance in the 1998 classic Spike Lee hoop film, He Got Game.
