More than often, it is the color scheme of a particular sneaker colorway that attracts sneakerheads into buying it. As of now, Jordan Brand has numerous classic Air Jordan color schemes, but one that continues to be regarded as the most iconic is none other than the very first one, the “Bred” colorway. More recently, it is even being referred to as the “Banned” colorway due to its association with the first Air Jordan 1 High pair that Michael Jordan wore. Apparently, 2017 is set to mark the return of another well-known “Bred” colorway, this time of the Air Jordan 13, which originally arrived at retailers back in 1998.
Amongst upcoming Jordan releases 2017, the Air Jordan 13 “Bred” will actually be making its third comeback. As mentioned, Jordan Brand first re-released this colorway back on December 22nd, 2004. At that time, the official name of the colorway was “Black / True Red” and it retailed at a price of just $150 back then. Prior to 2010, the Air Jordan 13 had been on somewhat of a hiatus and after it returned, Jordan Brand a number of classic colorways. Then on January 12th, 2013, Jordan Brand brought back the Air Jordan 13 “Bred” and the sneaker went up on retail at a slightly higher price of $160.
Hence, the Air Jordan 13 “Bred” is actually returning the third time. Of course, this returning version will not be any different from the original that debuted back in 1998. Thus, the sneaker’s uppers are made up of mesh with underlying 3M reflective material and leather toes, and it must obvious; the uppers are dressed up in a combination of Black and True Red. Of course, it also features the signature Green-colored hologram branding. Other features that the Air Jordan 13 “Bred” will be equipped with include carbon fiber sheaths, a hidden quick lace system, a modified herringbone pattern underneath the soles and Nike’s Zoom Air insoles.
This is widely recognized as one of the most classic and iconic colorways of the model, so it is understandable that this is going to be among the biggest Jordan releases 2017. The wait will soon be over because 2017’s Air Jordan 13 “Bred” is scheduled to retail at a price of $190 on August 19th.
