When it comes to double-sneaker Air Jordan packs, “love” seems to have been a recurring theme. Back on April 21st, 2007, Jordan Brand released the Air Jordan 1 “Old Love / New Love” Pack, which has also been referred to as the “Beginning Moments Package.” Ever since the release of the Air Jordan “Defining Moments Package” back in January 2016, this was Jordan Brand’s first two-pair Pack in a long time. “Old Love” represented basketball and “New Love” represented “motorcycle racing,” two of Michael Jordan’s famous passions. Jordan Brand’s latest two-sneaker pack, the “Love and Respect” Pack featured here, includes two different Air Jordan 13 colorways.
This latest two-pair pack that Jordan Brand has whipped up is more similar to the “What is Love?” Pack that made its retail debut exclusively in China back in November 2016. That pack was actually released for the Chinese festival of Guanggun Jie or Single’s Day. After all, a pair of sneakers would make the ideal gift that single Chinese sneakerheads could buy for themselves. Much like Jordan Brand’s latest pack, the “What is Love?” Pack also consisted two different Air Jordan 13 colorways, one for men and one for women. The “What is Love?” Pack actually arrived at retailers on Single’s Day, i.e. November 11th 2016.
Much like the Air Jordan 13 “What is Love?” Pack, this upcoming “Love and Respect” Pack also includes two different, brand new colorways of the Air Jordan 13, one for men and one for women. This pack actually gets its nickname from the utmost love and respect that Michael Jordan has had and still has for the sport of basketball. While both sport a Black and White color scheme, the men’s colorway is predominantly dressed up in Black and the women’s one is predominantly dressed up in White. Both reflective “Love and Respect” graphics, and “Love and Respect” is also printed at the bottom of their laces.
Last but not least, much like the Air Jordan 13 Retro “What is Love?” Pack, sneakerheads in the U.S. will unfortunately not be able to grab this pack. The Air Jordan 13 “Love and Respect” Pack is scheduled to hit the shelves exclusively in China on October 1st, 2017.apparently, the pack will also include some matching apparel too.
