The Air Jordan 13 Retro Houndstooth GS brings fall-ready vibes to the thirteenth signature sneaker of Michael Jordan. A kids exclusive edition, they come in a black, lilac, white and metallic silver colorway. Sporting a white-based leather and textile plaid upper. Lilac purple and black accents are finished off by silver branding in place of the traditional hologram eye on the collar. Two sets of metallic silver lace dubraces, one “Wings” logo and the other MJ’s number “23” finish things off for this pair.
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 Houndstooth (GS) is set to release on October 1st, 2021. It will launch via Nike & select stores for a retail price of $140 in GS (gradeschool) sizing. They will also be available in both PS (preschool) and TD (toddler) sizes as well.
