Last seen back in 2010 in a mesh version, the Air Jordan 13 Altitude Green is making a return this weekend, in its original form featuring a Black leather upper.
Before we go any further, let’s take a look back at the “Altitude” Air Jordan 13s
The original Air Jordan embodied number 23’s “Black Cat” alter-ego. It brought unique colors and materials to the court, along with a unique hologram reminiscent of a Black Cat’s glowing eyes. In 2005, that contrasting look of black and green would come to life in a new form with the “Altitude” Air Jordan 13.
The 2005 “Altitude” Air Jordan 13 was unveiled, unlike any Air Jordan before it. In a time where new shoes were no longer debuted on the feet of the man himself, the new Air Jordan 13 made its debut in the Winter 2004 issue of the Brand Jordan Magazine.
Not only did the new Air Jordan bring a new colorway to the table, it introduced a new combination of materials for the Air Jordan 13 with a full leather upper and premium sting ray-inspired detailing.
Fast forward to 2010, the Altitude colorway would make a return in more of a traditional fashion. The 2010 iteration of the Altitude was presented with a premium leather construction and familiar mesh overlays, reminiscent of the original Air Jordan 13.
THE 2017 RELEASE
Features a full black leather upper with a textured overlay on the sides and heels, while a holographic logo on the heel and green outsole completes the classic design altogether.
