Official Images: The Air Jordan 13 ‘Obsidian’Release: 18 September 2021
Official images and a release date have emerged for the upcoming Air Jordan 13 ‘Obsidian’, as anticipation builds for next month. Rocking a super clean palette of white, ‘Obsidian’, and ‘Dark Powder Blue’, this AJ13 was first unveiled when Jordan Brand revealed their Fall 2021 lineup back in June.
The Air Jordan 13 has long been a popular member of the Jordan Brand stable, and has enjoyed a slight cultural resurgence over the last 12 months or so, presumably 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 would have you 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.
Pairs of the Air Jordan 13 ‘Obsidian’ are scheduled to launch on September 18 and will be available from Nike and selected Jumpman retailers such as GOAT.
