As a key colorway in the rich product series of Air Jordan 13, “Playoffs” will return again in the 2023 All-Star Weekend. The “Playoffs” colorway first made its on-court debut during the 1998 All-Star Game and then accompanied MJ and the Bulls to the playoffs that same year. This long-awaited iconic release is finally making a comeback. The paw-inspired outsole features a black panther inspired by MJ’s Black Cat moniker.
Tinker Hatfield’s original design of the Jordan 13 was inspired by Jordan’s aggressive style of play, known as the “Black Cat.”
The upper combines black dimpled leather side panels with smooth leather. The all-black design includes the tongue, laces and midsole. A green holographic logo appears on the heel. Red and Yellow embroidery appears throughout on the logo on the tongue. Yellow circle interior with Jumpman logo. The yellow JORDAN logo is located at the bottom of the tongue. White leopard claws with red trim support the entire upper.
