When the Air Jordan 13 was being thought up, Michael and Tinker Hatfield did not have a meeting before they drew up designs. Tinker had an idea. He later met with Michael and told him that he looked like a black cat, or panther. Funny thing was, between Michael and his friends, his nickname is “black cat”. The sole of the Air Jordan 13 is one of the most unique soles ever released in the Jordan line. If you get a chance to look at the sole of them you will see a huge resemblance with a panthers paw. By the heel of the Air Jordan 13 was a circle hologram. If you look close you will see the number 23, a basketball, and the Jumpman logo.
