Dropping this week is a new colourway of the Air Jordan 13 Retro. Wait, what is that you say – isn’t this just the same as the “Bred” 13? The answer is no but the resemblance is definitely there (and quite uncanny). The new black and red 13s features premium updates of tumbled leather and suede. Who doesn’t like a red and black pair of sneakers? let’s be honest, this colour combination will never get tired with Jordans. We take a look at the pair before they drop this week.
The Nike Air Jordan 13 Retro Black Gym Red
Based on an early sample that only keen-eyed Jordan aficionados remember, the newest colourway of the Air Jordan 13 Retro brings back a black leather and suede upper with Gym Red pods. The Air Jordan 13 black red are definitely one of the sleeker drops of the 13 range. We have seen metallic shoes and all over holograms from the Air Jordan 13s so these are definitely more subtle. The Air Jordan 13’s are known for quality, so if you are looking for a shoe that will last then these are the ones for you.

Before Tinker Hatfield and Micheal Jordan sat down to draw up the designs for this pair, Tinker had already started the process. He drew inspiration from watching Jordan play on the court and decided Micheal was a black panther – he would watch his opponents and then suddenly strike with a feline quickness.
So it was from this that Tinker first developed the design for the trainers. The sole of the Air Jordan 13 is so unique in comparison to any other Air Jordan we have seen. The idea is that they look like panther claws but are super light, bouncy with plenty of traction. If you take a close look at any pair you will see the signature hologram on the heel that resembles a panthers eye, flashing in between the number 23, the Jumpman logo and a basketball.
