Quick history: the Air Jordan 13 PE was first released around 1997 to 1998. This was also the last time that His Airiness played for the Bulls so you can tell just how iconic this pair of kicks happens to be.
Furthermore, Jordan actually broke a record while wearing this particular shoe model! Beating the record of Karemm Abdul Jabbar when it comes to scoring double digits, Jordan made history with the help of these babies. With an excellent performance, Jordan brought home the MVP title and the ring – for the sixth time in his basketball career.
sneakereasy.com is therefore excited to announce that the Air Jordan 13 PE is back and available for purchase this year! Just to clear things up, the PE stands for Player Exclusive and the silhouette is regarded as one of the best designs in the market today.
There are actually several Air Jordan 13 models to be released in the market today, including the Dwayne Wade PE which seems to be highly popular. The current favorite however is the “Playoffs” which was first released in 1997, just in time for Jordan’s iconic send off from the Chicago Bulls.
The Playoffs features a black and red design with a texture that is evident from the pictures. Made from leather, soft, light, and durable – this particular kick features a rich overlay of black with linings of red on both edges. The outsole features a true red lining while the midsole boasts of clean white contours that somehow manages to stand out from the extreme black of the colorway.
Even the tongue and laces are done in black with just a defining red line on the edge of the tongue. Of course, the Jump Man logo is present, placed right on the center and seemingly stitched or embossed in a true red hue. There is also an icon along the heels which features a clear, hologram-like design that gives the Playoffs a very distinctive look. The Playoffs are scheduled for general release and will be available in all Jordan Brand stores with a promising number of productions so you should not worry about running out.
Other Air Jordan 13 PE and non-PE models are available today, some of them already on the shelves while others are still due for release. You should also watch out for iconic colorways under the Air Jordan 13 silhouette which includes: He Got Game, Flints, Wheats, Bred, and Low.
