While we will see plently of original Air Jordan I styles returning over the next few months, the Jordan Brand will also be introduced several new takes such as this Air Jordan XIII-inspired version previewed today.

The unexpected mash-up combines the simple and timeless design of the Air Jordan I with the unmistakable materials and color combo utilized on the Air Jordan XIII. Premium leather and 3M reflective mesh builds the gym red upper, while black hits the laces, collar lining and midsole below. The Air Jordan XIII inspiration is completed with a hologram Jordan Wings logo on the collar.

The Gym Red/Black Air Jordan 1 Retro '97 TXT is scheduled to release December 31st at Jordan Brand accounts nationwide.
