Jordan 13 Court Purple
January 8, 2022
The Air Jordan 13 Retro Court Purple channels its inner Mike Bibby from his Sacramento Kings playing days. Nicknamed the “Court Purple” edition, this AJ 13 comes in a clean black, court purple and white colorway. Similar to one of Bibby’s Air Jordan 13 Retro Low PE’s from 2005, they feature a black-based upper with purple accents sitting atop a black outsole. The classic hologram logo is on the collar and microfiber tongue finishes things off.
The Air Jordan 13 was originally released in 1997-98. Inspired by Jordan’s alter ego, the “Black Cat,” the sneaker features holographic logos on the collar and bottom of the paw-like outsole. MJ would lace them up throughout his final NBA season as a member of the Chicago Bulls. He would later go on to win his sixth title and complete his second three-peat during this time. The sneaker was also made famous by Denzel Washington as he wore it on-screen in the 1998 Spike Lee joint, ‘He Got Game.’ It was retroed for the first time from 2004-05 and continues to see various releases almost on a yearly basis.
The Air Jordan 13 Retro “Court Purple” is set to release on January 8th, 2022. It will launch via Nike & select stores for a retail price of $190 in men’s sizing. They will also be available in full-family sizing, from gradeschool down to toddler.
