Make way for the Air Jordan 13 “Wolf Grey” – Jordan Brand is adding a new colorway to MJ’s thirteenth signature basketball shoe to the Summer 2023 lineup. This iteration of the Air Jordan 13 features a white tumbled leather upper with Wolf Grey suede overlays. Additional details include a red Jumpman embroidered logo on the tongues and outsole. The iconic cat eye hologram is placed on the ankle collar with white midsoles to top off the look.
The Air Jordan 13 “ Wolf Grey” is set to drop on August 5th at Shoe Palace retail locations and online. Check out our launch calendar for upcoming sneaker releases.
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.
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.
The 13’s cultural relevance was cemented by its appearance in Spike Lee’s He Got Game. The iconic film starred Denzel Washington and Ray Allen. Washington’s character has a memorable scene where he purchases the sneakers, and he then proceeds to wear them for most of the film. Many consider the Air Jordan 1-13 to be the ones that are most vital to the line, largely because of MJ’s career protectory. The 13 holds a special place in the franchise’s singular legacy.
