The Air Jordan 13 Retro “French Blue” is Dropping Soon

The “French Blue” shade has been a mainstay in the Air Jordan line since MJ’s days with the Washington Wizards, first making its way onto the Air Jordan 7 in 2002. It has since had stints on the Air Jordan 1 and, more notably, the Air Jordan 12, but never on the Air Jordan 13. Thankfully, that’s about to change later this month.

The forthcoming Air Jordan 13 “French Blue” nods to the 7s and 12s with a bright white tumbled-leather upper, which envelops the quarter panels. That same material also appears in “Light Steel Grey” on the vamp. From there, “French Blue” suede underlays grace the quarter panels, heels, and wrap onto portions of the foam midsoles.

In classic Air Jordan 13 fashion, holographic cat’s-eye emblems are placed onto the lateral heels – further branding includes a “Fire Red” Jumpman at the tongue and “Jordan” lettering below the lowermost eyelets.

Moving toward the sole, you’ll find split foam midsoles, with one portion wrapped in the aforementioned “French Blue” suede, and the other painted white. The colorway is complete with rubber outsole units which are done in a “Light Steel Grey,” white, and “French Blue” combination.

Looking to score a pair? They’ll be available on and at DTLR stores on August 19th in full-family sizing.
