It was only a matter of time. The Air Jordan Dub Zero got the hybrid ball rolling and the Six (6) Rings focused solely on the kicks MJ rocked whilst marching toward the Larry O’Brien Trophy. In between, a whole line of hybrids mashing various Air Jordans into the Air Force 1 emerged as the Air Jordan Force series. Both the Dub Zero and Six Rings featured the Air Jordan XIII‘s triangular side panels and that model is finally being ‘Forced’.
The Air Jordan Force XIII (AJF13) appears here in early artists renderings, having yet to emerge in sample form. AJ fans will recognize them as the regular season home colourway, the Flint Grey All Star do-up that graced the latest Six Rings that released today and the playoff palette worn in the 1998 tourney’s road games. All three feature the aforementioned golf ball-inspired side panels and two of the three have dimpled straps. Other notable design elements include the outer heel hologram inserts
A ‘Nike Air’ logo on the formerly soft elastic, now suede/leather upper heel and a two-toned AF1 sole divided by the pod-like design on the AJXIII bring the design together. Stick with Sneaker News and we’ll keep you up to date with the latest pictures and release info.
