The Air Jordan 13 retro campaign continues this month with the first reissue of the model’s original white-and-red colorway since 2010.
Created by renowned Nike and Jordan Brand designer Tinker Hatfield, the Air Jordan 13 was worn by former Chicago Bulls legend Michael Jordan en route to his sixth championship win, which came during the 1997-98 NBA season. The sneaker saw dozens of colorways and reissues in the years that followed, but this is just the second time the original white-and-red makeup has been rereleased.
The “White/Team Red” Air Jordan 13 is constructed with a white full-grain leather upper and vibrant red suede underlays. The colored suede also extends to the midsole for a premium touch, and the rear panel features the shoe’s iconic hologram detail.
According to Hatfield, the hologram inlay was chosen to represent the glowing eyes of a panther. The animal’s inspiration is also seen at the outsole, which takes on a paw-like shape and serves as a nod to Jordan’s “Black Cat” nickname.
