Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls didn’t make much noise when they reached the Playoffs in 1985 (besides a mere 63-point game by the great one), but the story of the XIII is much different. In fact, when MJ wore the Air Jordan XIII, the Bulls won an NBA Title! This Spring 2013 release combines AJ1 and AJ13 to sum up the Air Jordan 1 Retro ’97, with the popular ‘Playoffs’ colorway taking form in the tumbled black leather and dimpled upper. More images of this upcoming hybrid-style release is ahead so take a look and stay tuned to Sneaker News for more updated release info.
Air Jordan 1 Retro ’97
I've got Playoff XIIIs and I would still consider copping these. This is a combination that works (a lot better than mixing AF-1s & Js).
that leather is fuckin dope like avon barksdale on da wire... im startin to be done wit JB tho... they fuckin up da game worse then da resellers
I see JB went back to the Fusion lab and cooked up some more FrankenJs. .... For those touting you like the quality on these, you should be voicing to get that same quality on retros without a $30+ price hike. Reebok has $120 (and lower) kicks with great quality, so it can be done
Better call these jordan retro 1/13 fusion and start doin all jordans till 23 smh just like the forces
@DugLast the AJF4s & 5s were the best in my opinion
@The Whale Because the first 13's were released in 97. The playoffs aren't the only colorway for these retro 97's.
@NuttyKicksmost Jordans are 'leather' and if they were to use real leather..thats a lot of fuckin cows man ha
@Enrik I love IVs and Vs, but fusions were a hard sell for me. The AF-1 outsole kills the Jordan look.
@DugLast yeah fusions were a big bust to the JB line. much respect to your opinion bruh.
