Air Jordan 13 Retro “Black Cat”
The Air Jordan 13 “Black Cat” is a stealthy edition of Michael Jordan’s thirteenth signature shoe. Tinker Hatfield’s design for the Air Jordan 13 was actually inspired by Jordan’s “Black Cat” nickname, and modeled after certain aspects of a panther, including the paw-like outsole design and holographic “eye” Jumpman logo. The design inspiration comes full circle on this 2017 retro release of the Jordan 13 with an all-black colorway. The construction features a black suede base with reflective-accented black mesh paneling across the upper. Glossy black paint adds some textural contrast, while white stripes in the rope laces add the final touch. The Jordan 13 “Black Cat” released on January 21, 2017.
