AIR JORDAN LOW WEEK

So far our focus on Air Jordan Low models this week in Classics Revisited has leaned towards retro releases of various silhouettes, all of which landed right around the early 2000’s marking a trend for the truncated approach. As mentioned before though that string was far from the first time the typical height on legacy releases had been chopped down. Case in point is the Air Jordan XIII, a sneaker which did eventually get the shortened retro look as late as 2005 but this time it had a precedent, with two colorways of the Air Jordan XIII Low hitting retailers during its original run on the shelves.

The Air Jordan XIII Low in black/navy pictured above was one of those two, picking up where the ‘Flint’ left off as far as utilizing a blue base; from there the shoes put on a much darker front than that most closely related colorway, draping the dimpled mesh paneling up top over a black back drop that switches to white once the heel pods are introduced. The finished product featuring bits of blue mixed in with the black and white, and those who are lucky enough to boast these in their collection will attest to how smooth and delicate the black leather really is. Aside from the Black/Blue colorway, 1998 also introduced a rare tan tone Air Jordan that sort of earmarked the beginning of more ‘lifestyle’ colorways finding their way onto legacy releases, the Air Jordan XIII Low in black/chutney. Click through with us for a look at both original Air Jordan XIII Low releases from 1998 and let us know in the comments below if you think these pairs don’t get the praise they deserve.

I wish jb would just release both, these & the chutneys in mid tops with the hologram in 2013. 2013 should be the year of the 13's, and stop releasing the same 13's flints, white black and reds, and altitudes. Give me J's that released before 2004-05!

I have these still worn twice. My only true original Jordan in my collection. I love these , possibly the best low Jordan IMO . JB should make these a mid top version with the hologram .

I have the chutneys, got Em for 60$ at Sneaker Con when it was in Chicago. Love Em. Turns heads and I'm only 21 so the OGs always caught off guard like damn you was a shorty when they dropped lol

About time you guys put the Carolina Blues on radar. These need to come back, would definitely cop a couple of pairs. It's been too long since I've had these, too long.
