The Air Jordan 13 ‘Red Flint’ Is Almost HereRelease: 1 May 2021
The build-up for this release started all the way back in the middle of last year, but the drop for the Air Jordan 13 ‘Red Flint’ is now just around the corner. And with that confirmed release date comes the usual suite of official images, just in case you needed more evidence of why this retro-inspired colourway is the one for you.
While it’s always been a popular member of the Jumpman lineup, the AJ13 enjoyed something of a cultural resurgence last year, sparked by the runaway success of ESPN’s The Last Dance which transfixed a global audience. 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 based on the shape of a paw, and dressing the ankle with a holographic jewel, mimicking a cat’s eye. The divergent approach to MJ’s signature line was, at the time, unlike anything the Jordan range had seen before.
Pairs of the Air Jordan 13 ‘Red Flint’ will drop on May 1 at Nike and selected Jumpman stockists such as GOAT.
