Though you might not have known it, Michael Jordan’s thirteenth signature sneaker has been celebrating a pretty significant milestone in 2022, with the Tinker Hatfield-designed sneaker currently in the midst of its 25th-anniversary celebration. That will change as we enter the tail end of 2022, with the “UNC” leading into releases of the “Black Flint” and OG “Playoffs”early next year. But before we get there, it appears that the model will be given a shot of energy thanks to an A-list collaborative partner, with a first look at an upcoming SoleFly x Air Jordan 13 confirming a reunion between the South Florida retailer and the footwear brand.
Though the pair’s official inspiration is yet to be cited, the coloration continues a long run of blue-based colorways for the silhouette, as well as the brand’s tributes to Mike’s Alma Mater in North Carolina. Here, Tar Heel blues dress the pair’s premium suede shroud overlays and textile liners, while creamy off-white ripstop uppers and tongues provided the pair’s base. Supple grey suede covers the collar and guards, while midsoles paintwork sees a return to Uni Blue. Sole units take on a light tan and gum tooling, complete with royal blue hologram buttons. Co-branding at the tongue is reminiscent of Jordan Brand’s “Motorsport” initiative, with animal-print insoles continuing on from SoleFly’s most recent Air Jordan 1 Low collaboration.
With a release for the SoleFly x Air Jordan 13 expected towards the end of the year, expect to see and learn more on the collaboration soon.
