This list of the best selling Air Jordans of 2013 from the likes of Complex and sneaker analyst Matt Powell might surprise you quite a bit. For one, the amounts of units sold should help put into perspective just how “limited” some of your favorite Jordans are-even coveted pairs like the Jordan 11 “Gamma Blue” sold hundreds of thousands of pairs. You may also be surprised at the performance of non-retro pairs like the Jordan 6 Rings and the Jordan Son of Mars Low. Continue reading for the full breakdown, listed in order of pairs sold, and tell us which entries surprised you the most.

@sneakernews this should be rephrased. It's about how many units the Jordan brand PRODUCED. Retros will sell out regardless
@sneakernews bred 1s
@sneakernews Oreo 5
@sneakernews can I point that the Bred 11's released in 2012 not 2013
@sneakernews whatever's on sale at walmart
@sneakernews what about royals
@sneakernews got all except the Breds. Surprised the taxis didn't make it
@DMV_Gemini they're on there too
@freewheelburnin yea I see it now. Those ugly Phoenix 8s made it which is terrible
@DMV_Gemini it's basically just the shoes that had the most pairs produced. Those Phoenix VIII's could be had under $100 at some spots
@sneakernews those Oreo 5s made it wow lol
@jwjumpman736 all this means is it had more available then others. the reason jordans like Bel airs or black grapes didn't make this list is because they were limited, not many pair available. but were both waaay more popular then Oreo 5's.
I think that the fresh prince 5s n the black's grapes were wanted more but the Oreo 5s were more popular bcuz they sold the most even tho they made more pairs
@sneakernews they were also one of the least limited..
@sneakernews who needs em sz 11??
@mpcmeesh @sneakernews how everyone and there baby mama had those
@sneakernews damn right, got my pair
@sneakernews luv dem.
@sneakernews one of my regrets that I didn't cop
@sneakernews I want the cements to comeback!!!!!
@dgully314 did you ever learn supply and demand
@PurdyFreshKicks i sure did. but name something else thats at a high demand and sells out like crazy that doesnt come in mass production like nike sneakers. nothing.
The list is useless data. Since every jordan release sells out, then obviously the shoe that was produced in largest volume automatically becomes the best seller.
@sneakernews it sat around here still on fnl shelf at x mass
It's bullshit there were so many js that sold out in minutes like the Bred 1s that should be on this list. The Oreo 5s are the best selling because they have such a high stock of em you can go online and get them right now from Champs Footlocker Footaction and Finishline. I wanna see a list with the top 20 best shoes and the top 20 shoes that were the most wanted shoes of 2013 not a bullshit list of what Nike produced the most of. The crimson 3s were the most ugly ass shoes I've ever seen and the made the list. Its a joke.
@FrankieDTS complex will come out with 30 best
@FrankieDTS did you not read the title.
@sneakernews I got almost every 5 that came out last year and these were def the cleanest looking
@PedeB1984 Joooo, de er perfekte! :-)
@sneakernews easy to be a best seller when they make a billion pairs. How about the fastest selling of 2013?
@sneakernews not gammas?
@sneakernews that's how you know shits gone downhill since 09.
See, shit like this makes me mad. It just tells me enough Js can be produced so that anyone who wants a pair can just go get them, anytime, at retail price. That would end reselling, end saturday morning frustration, cut down on and possibly end folks getting jumped, beaten and/or killed over some shoes...and Jordan Brand still makes their paper. Imagine that...
@sneakernews it was the most available also so makes sense smh#numberslie
