One final run with the Bulls. The '97-'98 campaign would sadly be Michael Jordan's Chicago curtain call, but he finished up in style. For the second time, MJ swept All-Star, regular season and league MVP award nods, captured a record 10th scoring title and sealed the deal by helping the Bulls complete the double three-peat.
He'd famously wear one more Air Jordan model as a Bull, but the remainder of his final Chicago season was spent in the Air Jordan XIII. Tinker Hatfield designed the shoe after the "Black Cat," unaware that it was a secret nickname Michael was called by friends. Features include Zoom Air, a carbon fiber plate, high-traction sole and a holographic accent that represents the panther's eye.
For the XX8 Days of Flight, the Jordan Brand introduces the XIII in this Altitude-like black and neon green colorway. Full leather, a green lining and blacked out branding are some of the things that separate it from the popular retro.
