With a strong influence in the sneaker game for the last two+ decades, Spike Lee deserves every bit of the respect he’s been given by Jordan Brand and the sneaker community. He was honored with the Spiz’ike in 2006 and later with the Son of Mars, and there’s no stopping what JB and even Nike will do for the famed film director. This Air Jordan XIII is just another example of Jays in Spike’s flicks, as this particular colorway was featured in ‘He Got Game‘, when Jake Shuttlesworth (played by Denzel Washington) cops these new kicks while he’s out on his mission of convincing Jesus to go to Big State. Another gallery of images as well as some on-feet shots are right below, so take a look!

I'm going to try, if hypbeasts let me, to buy these. Since JB is changing prices these might be on $170-$180 pricetag.
If i get these they the only jordans im gettin these n maybe another pair but after that nomore in 2013 jordan not gettin all my bread this year
They switched the Bred and White/Black release dates. These now come out in march and the Breds are Jan 12. I like the white black colorway on the 13 better than bred... even though i love breds just not so much on the 13
Passing on a lot of kicks this year....these are apart of that group. Jordan ain't getting all my cake this year.
He Got Game is on right now, BET. 4pm PST. Ohhhhh sheeeeeeit. I just realized tht the "hoodrat" I was talking about in this post earlier, is Rosario Dawson! I'd smash but she's a shady ass hoe in this one! Lol. Ahaha
Question for anyone who has owned a pair of 13's. Out of all the Jordans ive owned in my life, Ive never had the pleasure of rockin 13's. Can someone tell me how they fit? Do they fit tight? They look like they would be on the tight side. And if possible, how high do they come up on the leg in comparison to the 5's? I know weird but Its not like the old days where I can actually go in and try em on lol. Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks @Iamme85 . Yeah I just talked to foot locker and they told me its the Breds on Jan 12.
...I know, I know...it's that infamous scene where Denzel goes into the shop and cops these sneakers,...but the scene that does it for me is shortly after, when he goes up to the hoodrat looking for Jesus (Ray Allen), and ol'boy tries to "man-up" and get mouthy! Lol.......Chin-Checked with a Hot 'bow to the face. Ahhhhhhahahaha...... COPPED THE CDPXIII, COPPIN THESE TOO. Comfy!
Do we know the release date on these? I thought it was March but now I see January? Are both the Breds and these releasing in Jan? I looked everywhere and couldnt find anything written in stone.
i would definitely want these if the game weren't so upside down right now. i'll just be admiring these from a far :/
Thanks for the reminder, i was getting confused with the release dates of these and Bred
@vphili I don't own many 13's but I do have the french blues from 2010. I feel that they fit just right not on the tight side. I think its sneakes with the inner bottie that makes em tight. I have a 10.5 and they fit perfect with space. On the bred 11 I had to size up to size 11.
@npt Except for the fact that the all black 13s were/are the playoffs, you're right.
@Da_Real_Big_Infinite Peep thscene I'm talking bout below,...Denzel comes walking up the block with these on,...then puts it down on some chump.
@CreatedByLeon1 are you talking about the Squadron Blues? The Flints came out in 2010
@vphili yeah i keep hearing the sam but majority is march 16.according to footlocker the bred 13 as well as the gs teal/ purple/black 13 drop jan 12
Thanks for the info. Much appreciated. I got wide feet so retros like the 1's, 7's, 8's, and 9's usually fit tight on me. I still wear them of course but good to know how the shoe fits you.
@Cop em and Rock em real talk homie... I love when he goes to da store & da store sale mans lifts his pants & sees his ankle bracelet & says he has an arthritic condition lol
@KoriMiller Are you dumb im TALKING ABOUT my favorite 13s these and the flints are my favs. where do you see me saying that the flints come out in 2013?
@CreatedByLeon1 oh my bad, I must have misread the comment
