The new Air Jordan 13 was originally designed with the black panther in mind to showcase Michael Jordan’s methodical approach to attacking and dominating the game of basketball. The unique midsole and outsole unit was shaped to pay homage to the structure of a panther’s paw while that holographic branding mimicked the black cat’s always watching eyes. The silhouette boasts a stealthy black finish across its entire upper with 3M reflective detailing evident throughout, as well as on the laces. The respective theme is further evident with the circular hologram on the heel and outsole to simply mimic the panther’s eye respectively. In addition, slight glossy portions on the matching rubber sole unit finish off its understated and sleek design.
