2020 Jordans, If you wanna be one of the lucky 1,743 people out there who own a pair of the Air Jordan Premio BIN 23's then you probably should stop reading right now and head over to your local sneaker spot and see if they have any left. Tinker Hatfield took Michael Jordan's childhood nickname, Black Cat, as inspiration when designing the Air Jordan 13, as he believed MJ's game mirrored how a panther pounced on its prey. One of the key features to the shoe is its holographic bubble on the ankle heel.
The Air Jordan 13 is the first model of the series to feature a hologram. This special Bin23 edition uses team red suede on most of the side panels and collar area, while desert clay nubuck is seen on the heel and on sections just above the white sole. Its complimentary features include the Bin 23 stamp on the premium leather tongue, white laces and a white toe area. Only 1734 pairs were made and each pair is individually numbered on the tongue. In comparison to the Desert Clay's they are definitely made of higher grade materials and don't have the 3M fabric on the upper but these are not a bad consolation prize at all.
New Air Jordans 2019, More than just a sports icon, MJ was a world-class athlete. To celebrate Jordan's cat-like reflexes and speed, Nike designer Tinker Hatfield drew inspiration from predatory cats for the Air Jordan 13. Nike modeled the sole after a panther's paw print and implemented holograms on the bottom and by the ankle as if they were a giant cat's glowing eyes. Appropriately inspired by a panther's predatory nature, Tinker harnessed its tenacity to create the Air Jordan XIII. The shoe featured an unconventional holographic eye and an outsole resembling a panther paw. The AJ XIII also featured innovations like a carbon fiber plate and Zoom Air, to give players the agility of a cat.
