Fresh off this weekend’s release of one of the most hotly anticipated Air Jordan Retros of 2012 in commemoration of Michael’s second Olympic gold medal comes a look into next year’s run of models from his last NBA Championship season. The Air Jordan 13 will return next spring with one of its original colorways and another that takes that pair’s distinctive dimpled ballistic nylon panels in a different direction. The first is the ‘Bred’ Air Jordan XIII Retro that would have been nicknamed ‘Last Shot’ had Mike not reached into the future during a title run he must have sensed was his last. The second is the brand new ‘Squadron Blue’ edition, sporting a tonal build reminiscent of the 2010 ‘Altitude’ revision. Let us know which looks best once you’ve had a chance to see them both below and stick with Sneaker News for all the 2013 Air Jordan 13 release dates.
The blues are that shoe I think everyone hates then I go to pick it up and theres a line down the street
im not feeling those blues.. but the breds tho! their my second favorite 13s after the flint 13s. now those are my fav
Da breds... 1 of my top 10 best Jordan's ever.... don't kno wat to think of dat blu pair tho... not really tellin them
The Squad Blue's are nice but I've never been a fan of shoes that are all one color. Breds are looking good though.
Both look NICE! and they look like they both have 3M on the side. That's a BIG PLUS in my opinion. Want to see more detailed images tho!
I don't understand why all these early photos have to be so blurry. Where do you even find a camera that shitty in 2012? I will still cop them both though.
never had a pair of XIIIs before but I'm feeling those Squadrons. I guess I just like shoes with the Seahawks colorway. It's not seen much
@OoWee_B Clearly you are the epitome of a hypebeast. Those blue 13s are wack. I bet you'll cop anything that has 'Air Jordan' or 'Retro' in its name.
@Jumpfan23A white mid sole? or where the bred is red make that white, you on to something.
@BallHard15 @OoWee_B the blue 13s arent that bad. I saw the rumor photo and liked em. They arent a definite cop but when the release come closer and there are better photos then i will know. But the hypebeast is kinda right. The 13s coming out in 2013 are good. They comin out with the breds and the he got games. They both nice. If he missed out on them then why not get em all when they release next? But the way he commented he did sound like a hypebeast. All i know is that i take the breds and he got games ovver the squadron blues.
@BallHard15Like, once more
