In his last playoff series in 1998, MJ’s closing prowess earned him his final ring, while his team became the first franchise to three-peat on two different occasions. Inspired by the black panther and his predatory nature on the court, the AJ 13 were the kicks MJ wore that fateful year — the year he solidified himself as the GOAT. The 'Flint Grey' colorway was among the first colorways released for the AJ 13, and this iteration is as true to the original as ever. Reflective elements in the upper shine bright like they did back in the day, and the shade of blue on the vamp has been meticulously matched to the navy tone of the OG. This special AJ 13 also brings back the molded sockliner from the original model for that game-ready fit and feel. Even the box has been re-created to match the shoe’s first run.
