Movie sequels are never given a chance but when done right, they can be as great as the originals. The Air Jordan XIII ‘Flint’ colorway is scheduled for a “Part III” this coming November 2010 season, and with original cast of colors returning, there’s absolutely no doubt that this Air Jordan retro is going to be a huge box office hit. The Flint XIII originally released in February of 1998 and returned seven years later with a slightly different color code – Navy Blue to French Blue – but that slight change didn’t effect much (i.e. Katie Holmes to Maggie Gyllenhaal in the 21st Century Batman series).
The third go-around of this classic colorway should be a popular one as well, and we foresee Jordan-heads of all ages to rush to stores once these drop. Another interesting point; with the retail price of this Retro tentatively set at $150, this would be one of the very few Jordans that have not changed in price from Original to Retro ($150 in ’98, $150 in ’05). Again, these are scheduled for a November 2010 release, but with Jordan Brand being shaky with its release dates, stick with Sneaker News to make sure you’re on top of everything. You can avoid the lines and get an “advanced screening” because a full size run is available at Marquee Sole.
