In the past, the Air Jordan 13 received much less play than MJ’s earlier signature sneakers. But it’s a new year, and if Jordan Brand’s latest offering is any indication, the Air Jordan 13 will be a key player in the sportswear brand’s plans moving forward.
The release in question, dubbed “Court Purple,” arrives in a primarily black getup with accents of purple that would make the late-great Prince blush. Crafted to the exact specifications of the original ‘90s release, this 13 is built with a reflective textile upper done in black, with hits of similarly-colored tumbled leather arriving on the toeboxes. From there, “Court Purple”–tinted suede underlays arrive on the side panels and ankle collars. The upper is complete with the 13’s signature holographic cat eye emblem on the lateral heels.
Moving below, the rich purple suede makes its way onto the foam midsole units, which are capped with rubber outsoles done in black.
The Air Jordan 13 “Court Purple” is slated to hit JimmyJazz.com on January 8th for a retail price of $190.
