Closer Look: The Air Jordan 13 ‘Obsidian’
Release: 18 September 2021

Initially spotted when Jordan Brand unveiled their Fall 2021 lineup back in June, more images are now circulating of the upcoming Air Jordan 13 ‘Obsidian’. Rocking a clean palette of white, ‘Obsidian’, and ‘Dark Powder Blue’, this AJ13 is sure to be a hit with Jumpman fans across the globe. 

Always a popular member of the Jumpman lineup, the AJ13 has enjoyed something of a cultural resurgence over the last 12 months or so, sparked by the runaway success of The Last Dance docuseries. The feline-inspired silhouette was on Michael Jordan’s feet throughout the 1997/98 NBA season, proving that the number 13 isn’t as unlucky as some believe. Tinker Hatfield modelled the AJ13 on a black panther, finessing a unique outsole pattern that is based on the shape of a paw, and dressing the ankle with a holographic jewel, mimicking a cat’s eye.

There have been a few potential release dates floating around for the Air Jordan 13 ‘Obsidian’, but pairs are expected to launch on September 18 from Nike and selected retailers such as GOAT.
