From the beginning of Michael Jordan’s storied NBA career with the Air Jordan 1 to the end with the Air Jordan XIII Retro, Jordan Brand has plenty of stories to tell in 2013. This ‘Bred’ Air Jordan 13 is all about following up on the ‘Flu Game’ and persevering through some serious challenges courtesy of a gritty Indiana Pacers squad who remained in title contention for several years. They could have been the ‘Last Shot’ Thirteens had Mike not surprised the world with an early premier for the XIV, but no matter the nickname, our first round of black and red playoff ‘away’ XIIIs in nine years is the kind of thing that has Jordanheads frantically flipping back and forth between this and next year’s calendars to be sure everything’s in order. These are still on deck along with the new ‘Squadron Blue’ edition; for which ballistic-paneled pair are you most excited?
