The shopping season usually spills beyond the month of December into January and February with severe markdowns and stockroom clearing deals, but this is one hot item that some might have been saving up their dollars for a long while. Here’s a first look at the Air Jordan XIII ‘Playoffs’ that is currently set for a tentative January 2011 release; this colorway was worn by Michael during the 1998 NBA All-Star Game – his final All-Star Game appearance as a Chicago Bull – and during the 1998 Playoffs in two varieties – the Mid version for Home games a special PE low for Home games in the second round. All the AJ13 releases, namely the Flint XIII dropping this Friday and the Altitude XIII next month, may seem like overkill, but who’s really complaining?
