Do you keep the plastic protector sheet in tact when you get a new pair of Air Jordan XIIIs? If you’re keeping on ice to collect, the answer is a definite ‘yes’, but what about those of us who intend on wearing this March 2013 ‘Bred’ Jordan 13 release with all the enthusiasm of its debut just under fifteen years earlier? You’ll occasionally see someone rocking a pair with just enough wrinkling around the trademark ankle hologram to spot from a distance that dude probably has extended warranties on all his gear and a smartphone in a bombproof carrying case. The shoe undoubtedly looks better ‘bare’, and the prevalence of tapered pants these days will protect them from hemline friction, but leave the door open to the environment. But that’s the kind of risk you take when you un-DS a beloved classic like these, so you might want to plan on picking up multiple pairs while we wait patiently with new images below to tide us over.
