Though the autumn season is starting to wind down, Jordan Brand continues to bring the heat as the retro Air Jordan 13 “Bred” makes its way back to the shelves.
This colorway of the Air Jordan 13 features a black leather upper along with the signature mesh detailing on the side panels which comes with 3M detailing.

What year is Air Jordan 13?
The Air Jordan 13 is Michael Jordan’s thirteenth signature basketball shoe with NIKE, Inc. Originally released in 1997 during “The Last Dance,” the sneaker was designed by the legendary Tinker Hatfield.
the Air Jordan 13 draws inspiration from a black panther, which is reminiscent of MJ’s game. The outsole represents a panther’s paw while the hologram on the ankle represents their eyes.
Air Jordan Retro 13 features:
Design inspired by the speed and power of a panther, featuring a “cat eye” holographic Jumpman logo on the upper and paw-like outsole. Hidden speed-lacing system. Padded collar for plush feel. Phylon™ midsole with heel and forefoot Zoom Air™ units for lightweight and responsive cushioning.
The Air Jordan 13 is the last shoe MJ wore for a complete season with the Chicago Bulls. He would wear the 14 briefly in the NBA Finals and would later return to play for the Washington Wizards, but the 13 was the last shoe he would lace up for a season with the Bulls. In many ways, the 13 represents the end of an era.
