Sneaker Focus: Nike Air Jordan XIII Retro ‘Black Cat’

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Jordan XIII, Nike are releasing the sought after ‘Black Cat’ iteration, usually the Black cat nickname resembles the all black colourway, however, this time it has a much richer meaning for the 13s as they have the style that replicates a panther, the stealthy all black iteration pays homage to the panther’s dark coat fur. With a soft suede covering the toe box as it extends around the mudguard to the heel. The woven mesh panels on the upper contain 3M within and also has reflective accents in the laces which give it that unique contrast.

The Jordan 13 is said to be one of the most comfortable shoes in the Jordan line.  This can possibly be because of its durable Phylon midsole and its heel and forefoot Zoom Air which means every step on the court will be cushioned whilst retaining its responsiveness and impact.

Here at Soleheaven, we appreciate when sneakers have that creative design and story behind them. The sole of the 13s replicates a panther’s paw as you can see by the way each separate pad imitates that of a panther’s. Even the jewelled hologram on the heel and sole represent the eyes of the black cat.

The Panther has special hunting skills. Most like to stalk their prey before attacking. Which is why MJ received this nickname from Tinker Hatfield and other friends as he reads players and strikes before they get the chance.

These are going to be going quickly so make sure you get up early for the chance to cop some heat! There is also a GS version starting in a size 3 running up to a 5.5 so all of you with smaller feet, you get this heat!
