Nike always manages to find new ways to keep its fans on their toes – quite literally. The latest release in the sneaker world is the Air Jordan 13 French Blue, and the brand has once again managed to create a design that is both striking and classic. The combination of white, fire red, and French blue is a nod to the “True Blue” Air Jordan 3, and it is sure to be a hit with sneakerheads everywhere. The addition of light steel grey on the toes and outsole gives the shoe an extra pop of color, and the Jumpman on the tongue is a nice finishing touch.
With so much to love about this latest release, it’s no wonder Nike continues to be one of the most popular sneaker brands around. If you’re planning on picking up a pair of these 13’s, refer to the release details below.

Jordan 13 French Blue: Resale Value
The shoe hasn’t officially released yet and the data collected is painting a pretty grim picture for resellers. The chart above gives you a summary of the current earnings/losses per size sold of the shoe. As you can see, 67% of the sales resulted in losses ( sizes 8-9.5, 10.5,11 and 12-13). 17% led to earnings under $5 ( sizes 10 and 11.5), and size 14 resulted in a $19 profit. The only size that led to a considerable return is the size 7 with a margin of $88, but that was only from a single sale. So you can even expect this pair to sell for close to retail when the the shoe drops officially. What’s the verdict?
I wouldn’t recommend reselling the shoe at all as more than 60% of the sizes sold led to losses. And even on the three pairs that resulted in some form of gain ( 10,11.5 and 14), the mark up up to 8% ( below average), so the French Blue 13 screams disaster for Saturday morning resellers. And I don’t expect prices to peak at $300 even within a couple of years. So if you were considering investing in it for the long term, I would even advise against it. You will have to wait a significant amount of time to see any major changes in the current prices.
For buyers, this is always good news, with a lot of patience, you might be able to even pick up a pair for below retail.
