In 1997, Tinker Hatifled created the 13th signature shoe for his Airness. Inspired by Jordan’s black panther-esque playstyle, the outsole of the 13 resembled a paw print. Other details of the AJ13 included reflective mesh panels, a leather toe box, suede details, and a hologram that resembles a panther’s eye
The Air Jordan 13 was also famously worn by none other than University of Arizona and Sacramento Kings legend Mike Bibby. Though worn by Bibby in low-top form with a “5” embroidered on the heel, his player exclusives inspired the latest from the Jumpman.
The upcoming Air Jordan 13 “Court Purple” resembles Mike Bibby’s finest, as the Jordan Brand athlete will forever be remembered for his game and Kings PEs. Although in high-top form, the latest AJ13 is reminiscent of the heat that the brand cooked up for the guard.
The Air Jordan 13 “Court Purple” releases at Manor on January 8, 2022, for $190. First-come, first-serve. Limited to one pair per person.
