You may feel like you’ve seen a lot of the Air Jordan XIII recently. That’s probably because you have. In recent months, we’ve seen the Bin23 and “Flint” colorways hit retailers. Tonight, the highly popular “Altitude” Retro 13 makes a return, and two previously un-retroed original colorways are due out shortly afterward.

The Air Jordan XIII was originally released in 1997. Designed by the legendary Tinker Hatfield, the shoe was based on a Black Panther theme because of a nickname Jordan received by close friends. The famous pods used for the sole of the Jordan XIII are reflective of the paw pads of an actual panther. The XIII was also a special shoe because it was the first Air Jordan released by the Jordan Brand as its own separate entity. In 1998, Jordan passed Kareem Abdul-Jabbar on the all-time scoring list and won his sixth (and last) NBA Championship.

With so many Jordan Retro 13s set to drop in the coming weeks, let’s take a look at photos of the classic sneaker taken by members of the Sole Collector forum. Included are photos of the original “Altitude” colorway that will release tonight as well as the White/Red pair that will be available on December 18th.
