The Air Jordan 13, a legendary sneaker

If you know the Air Jordan sneaker brand, you already know that this brand has based its entire identity on basketball and in particular, its most emblematic figure, Michael Jordan . And one of his creations, the Air Jordan 13 , has become iconic.

Just like many models from Jordan and Nike , we owe the Jordan 13 to American designer Tinker Hatfield . The first pair of Jordan released in 1997, featuring a black upper and a red midsole, were directly inspired by Michael Jordan himself.

An American basketball legend deserves a legendary Jordan trainers that leaves a lasting impression. Hatfield was therefore inspired by this player's play on the courts during NBA games.

During the 1997-1998 season, Jordan was renowned for his strength and stealth play, capable of tormenting and destabilizing his opponents. His unparalleled talents earned him the nickname “Black Cat”, because he knew how to foil each maneuver of the opposing team like no other, with, what's more, a remarkable skill of which only he had the secret.

The American designer thus directly drew his inspiration from this nickname to create this pair of trainers . His first idea was to bring out the predator's instinct in the shoe while channeling the power of the panther.

From this design was born the famous Nike Air Jordan 13 .

A pair of Jordan full of innovations

As for its appearance, the iconic design of the Air Jordan 13s also takes on the characteristic features of the tan. This particularity is specifically noticed at the level of the unique sole of this trainer , imitating the paws of a panther.

In addition, the AJ13 is renowned for being a sneaker bringing together several technological innovations, impressive for the time when it was released. The Air Jordan XIII features a carbon fiber plate to keep it light as well as a Zoom Air unit under the sole, to allow MJ, at the time, to maintain his feline agility.

Added to this is an original holographic eye at the rear sides, and a unique sole with its wavy design, referring to a panther, as indicated above.

If, in the different Air Jordan collections that exist today, a large number of them have similarities, the Jordan Air Jordan 13 is unlike any other! The Jordan 5 and the Jordan 6 share a lot of details in common, but the 13 has become an iconic pair of trainers , because it is unique in its look.
