The Air Jordan 13 Black Red Will Return In The Summer

Sharing is caring!

The Air Jordan 13 Black Red commonly known as Bred 13 was originally released in 1998, a time that also marks MJ’s last run with the Chicago Bulls. By far my favorite in the 13’s series, the Bred 13 were re introduced in 2004 and 2012.

Dressed in the Chicago Bulls Black And Red uniform colors, 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).

CUSHIONING/ VENTILATION

The shoes 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.
