Unreleased Notorious B.I.G. Air Jordan 13s on Auction at Sotheby’s

Sotheby’s are auctioning 23 pairs of unreleased Notorious B.I.G. Air Jordan 13s to kick off Jordan Brand’s big 2023. Created back in 2017 to mark the late Christopher Wallace’s 45th birthday but never released to the public, this auction event marks the first time the shoes have ever hit the market.

Auctioned in collaboration with the ‘Jordan Year’ 2023 campaign, this serendipitous year also happens to coincide with MJ’s famous #23 jersey number and the 50th birthday of hip-hop, according to the brand. As such, only 23 pairs of these AJ13s will be available.

The predominately black colourway is riddled with nods to the legendary NY rapper. Biggie’s silhouette is printed on the tongues in place of the Jumpman logos, and lyrics to his famous song ‘Juicy’ are depicted on the backside. Red-and-black flannel lines the shoes in reference to his signature dress style.

Bidding is currently open for the shoes, which have already smashed estimates of $2300–5200, and one of two size 13 pairs has already hit $11,000. The auction closes on February 3, with a public viewing of the lots possible via Sotheby’s New York.
