New Air Jordan 13 Pays Homage to MJ’s NBA Retirement

By Staff  |  08/28/2017

The latest colorway of the Air Jordan 13 pays homage to Michael Jordan's final retirement in 2003.

For MJ's retirement announcement, he took to the newspapers to say goodbye. So, this Jordan 13 takes inspiration from this, with contrasting white/black and black/white iterations.

The letter ended with MJ’s words of “Much Love and Respect,” which is found under each colorway’s dotted side paneling in the reflective 3M material. "Love" and "Respect" is also seen on the bottom of each tongue, while the Jumpman’s circle logo is placed at the top. The familiar holographic jewel also returns on each lateral side as a final touch.

The white colorway will launch for men, while its black iteration is set to drop in GS sizing.

The Air Jordan 13 "Love and Respect" Pack drops October 1 in retailers in China for around $190 USD.
