The Jordan XIII is another pair of sneakers Tinker Hatfield designed for His Airiness himself. This time, he was inspired by the panther-like approach of Michael Jordan on the hard court. Like the cat, he would carefully study his opponents and then put his moves stealthily, throwing most of those he targets off guard. Unbeknownst to Hatfield, Jordan actually was already called the “Black Cat” in his inner circle for the very characteristics that the designer noticed.

This led to the distinct sole on the Jordan XIII that bore a resemblance to the wild cat’s paws, unlike anything ever seen on the Jordan line, as well as a holographic eye. It also boasted of an asymmetrical collar, a carbon fiber shank as well as a Zoom Air at the heel and the forefoot. The world saw seven releases of the AJ XIII back when it first rocked sneakerheads across the globe.

Pros

When it was first released in 1997, the Jordan XIII was revered for its topnotch design, a characteristic that stuck in the rereleases. It is a head turner, especially because of its iconic soles that are similar to panther paws, as well as the beautiful colorways it came in. Even if you’re not using it to play ball, the shoes will do their magic as their solid appearance go well with clothes. If you’re out on the court with it though, you’ll be able to maximize its features better.

The technology employed on the sneakers, particularly the carbon fiber shank and the Zoom Air, allow wearers to be as swift just like the legend and the panther. This, all the while providing maximum comfort that almost levels the XII through the sock liner and cushioning. Traction is noticeably better with the XII at first try, but the Jordan XIII gets better with more use. Despite its age, the Jordan XIII still works great on the court, providing incredible ankle support and grip.

Cons

The overall appearance of the shoes may be worth a few compliments and more, but with its material and make, they may look cheaper in time. The white soles in the originals were especially noted for bleeding eventually. Although lauded for its comfort, the Jordan XIII does need some breaking in, so the first few tries will be uncomfortable. The ventilation holes prove to be wanting, so even if they provide great cushion, the Jordan XIII can leave your feet tired and sweaty.
