The Air Jordan 13 “Bred” (short for black and red) was worn by the former Chicago Bulls superstar en route to his final NBA championship and the second Bulls three-peat with a trio of consecutive Finals wins. Jordan wore the panther-inspired kicks, which were designed by Tinker Hatfield, during postseason road games as he battled teams including the Charlotte Hornets, Indiana Pacers and New Jersey Nets.
Since their 1998 introduction, the retro sneakers have been rereleased on two occasions: first in 2004 and again in 2013 — albeit with some minor differences. Unlike the original 1998 and 2004 versions, the 2013 iteration of the Air Jordan 13 “Bred” did not feature reflective detailing on its mesh side panels. Many sneaker enthusiasts were disappointed by the oversight, but the classic kicks are now set to return in their true form.
the original tooling remains including that Chicago Bulls-inspired colorway with Varsity Red suede on the heel and mudguard while that holographic panther-inspired Jumpman branding returns in an iridescent green. Premium leather toe caps add a remastered finish.
