Air Jordan XIII was released in 1997 by Tinker Hatfield. He compared Michael Jordan’s movement’s on the court to moves of panther and found them quite similar. He put this idea as a foundation for Air Jordan XIII look. Panther features can be found all over shoe - the outsole represents the paw of a creature, and the jewel on the heel represents the eye. The jewel is actually a hologram with number 23 in it, as well as a jumpman logo and a basketball.
