Set To Drop: Air Jordan Retro 13 "Flint"

Clean and classic. The "Flint" Retro 13 makes an unforgettable entrance into the Jordan sneaker assembly.

When news broke last year that Jordan Brand would be bringing the Air Jordan Retro 13 ‘Flint’ back for a retail release, Jordan enthusiasts and sneaker lovers went nuts. For a while now, sneakerheads have been begging for another release of the ‘Flint’ 13s and now their prayers are being answered.

Retro 13 Heritage

The sneaker was originally introduced in 1998 and then released again in 2005 and then again in 2010, but this year's pair is true to the OG form with all of the classic details. Back in 2017, it was rumored to re-release once again, but the retro never happened. Now 2020 will mark the fourth time the beloved ‘Flint' Air Jordan 13 has returned, and it's expected to mirror the original with 3M Reflective detailing.

Behind the Design

This sneaker got the ‘Flint’ nickname from the use of Flint Grey suede throughout its midsole, mudguard, and heel, it’s become one of the most popular Jordan’s that’s not in Bulls colors. Now, this year's release mirrors the original pair better than the previous ones with 3M reflective detailing throughout its uppers that pops when a flash hits the shoe. Depending on who you ask, this could be one of the most anticipated releases of the year. Highlights of this classic sneaker include the reflective 3m mesh side panels in Blue which is complimented by Flint Grey suede, and then rounded out with clean White pebbled leather on the toe and tongue. This is one release that you will regret for a long time if you pass upon them.

The Air Jordan 13 Retro "Flint" is available Saturday, 05.30.20 online, and at select DTLR locations.
