Updated April 20th, 2017: The Air Jordan 13/14 DMP (Defining Moments Pack) releases on June 14th, 2017 for $500.
Jordan Brand is always cooking up something special for NBA Finals season, as it’s the perfect time to remind everyone who the GOAT is even if a certain someone has a habit of making it to 6 straight Finals appearances and counting in the current league. This year, Jordan Brand will celebrate the 20th anniversary of Mike and the Bulls’ 6th and final NBA Championship with the return of the Defining Moments Pack, as a special edition Jordan 13 and Jordan 14 in honor of the 97-98 title will release this June.
The Jordan 13 DMP features a ‘Home’ motif with premium white leather allowing for a metallic gold patent leather to truly steal the show. The holographic Jumpman branding replaces the ’23’ with a ’98’ while the inner tongue lining features some competitive banter reading ‘you can’t win until we quit’. Red Jumpman branding on the tongue adds a Chicago touch. You can read more about this pair here. That wasn’t the only pair that MJ wore during his final championship campaign, though, as the Jumpman rolled out the Jordan 14 during the playoffs and it was the silhouette that Mike was wearing during his famous ‘shot’ to clinch a deciding Game 6 win over the Jazz in Utah.
The ‘Away’ themed Jordan 14 DMP has a predominantly black leather upper allowing for the gold foil branding to truly shine on the Ferrari-inspired pendant and outsole shank. Alternate ’98’ branding also replaces the usual ’23’ PE insignia on the heel, but it’s basically camouflaged given the matching black shade. Only the slightest bit of red hits the heel and the XIV circle on the herringbone outsole.
Be sure to check out more detailed shots of the Jordan 13 DMP and Jordan 14 DMP, each slated to arrive at select retailers this June 2017. For more of the latest upcoming offerings from the Jumpman, be sure to head over to our Jordan Release Dates page.
