A Closer Look At The Air Jordan 13 “Black Royal”Published:
December 16, 2020
When Michael Jordan prepared for ‘The Last Dance’, he made sure to shake defenders in style. Slightly pushing off and leaving his jump-shot arm up in the air became an iconic moment in sports history. Winning six titles from consecutive three-peats made MJ the standard of basketball excellence. This also made the Air Jordan 13 a fan favorite due to how memorable that moment in time was.
Despite the Air Jordan 13 has an original colorway fitting for a Chicago Bulls uniform, other variations were made for players. Brand Jordan signee Quentin Richardson wore a PE sneaker that later influenced a public release. Back in 2018, the company dropped a silhouette with a White leather upper with Royal Blue suede.
For the slated 2020 Fall collection, Brand Jordan decided to make a couple of alterations. The upper for example has a Black leather base instead of its predecessor. Textile overlays have a reflective sensitivity to angle and sight. Right by the lateral heel lies a holographic eye sealed in a mood ring bubble. Hairy “Black Royal” is colder than ever around the panels. Underfoot are curvaceous outsoles with a rubber finish. Jumpman is flying all over the tongue logo, insoles, and within the crystallized foot icon.
