The Air Jordan 13 “Blue Grey”

The Air Jordan 13 is returning to Shoe Palace stores, and on, this February 10.


This latest version of the 13 is named, Blue Grey. Obviously, this is tied to the shoe’s color scheme. There is white tumbled leather, toe box and tongue. The blue is present on the mudguards, heels and on the midsole. There is also a yellow Jumpman on the tongue, an interesting touch on this “Blue Grey” colorway.


Michael Jordan played the game of basketball like a panther in the mind of designer, Tinker Hatfield. MJ’s close friends also referred to him as the “Black Cat.” Jordan would read his opponents and then strike like a panther. The cat and panther inspiration are a big part of the Air Jordan 13’s design.

The Design Of The 13

The sole of the Air Jordan 13 has a strong resemblance to a panther’s paw. Near the heel of the 13 is a circle hologram. Five models of the 13 were originally released between 1997 and 1998. Two low models were additionally released. The Air Jordan 13 would first be made available as a retro in 2004-2005.

Last Dance

The Air Jordan 13 is the last shoe MJ wore for a complete season with the Chicago Bulls. He would wear the 14 briefly in the NBA Finals and would later return to play for the Washington Wizards, but the 13 was the last shoe he would lace up for a season with the Bulls. In many ways, the 13 represents the end of an era.
