I haven’t changed my mind about the Air Jordan 13 Olive. I’ll go as far as saying that this is probably the best colorway in the Jordan 13 I’ve ever seen. The shoes were inspired by the 1994 Jordan 9 olive; there is a certain depth to this colorway that words can not express. The shoes kind of take me back to the golden era of the retros, a time where the emotional connection with Jordan Brand was deeply rooted. And that’s exactly how I feel about the Air jordan 13 olive. As much as I dislike the price point, I think I’ll have to suck it up and just buy the shoes.
Air Jordan 13 Olive
Dressed in the black and olive, the shoes feature a mixture of full grain leather on the toe box, a plush fabric on the panel overlays and suede leather on the mudguard. The 13’s were built primarily for performance; Tinker Hatfield equated MJ’s ability to strip the ball from his opponent and score at will to that of a panther-ironically Michael Jordan was already nicknamed the ” Black Cat” by his close friends. JB logos only appear on the outside of the tongue( Jumpman) and the heel panel ( iconic leopard eye).
They are equipped with zoom units at the heel and forefoot encapsulated in a phylon midsole for impact protection. The only air flow you get from the 13 is through the perforations on the extension of the tongue. Other features include a durable rubber outsole with herringbone threads for smooth transitions on the court.
