Inspired by Michael Jordan’s cat-like playing style, Tinker Hatfield incorporated a panther paw-inspired outsole into his design for the XIII. In addition, a hologram on the back quarter comprises the Jumpman logo, the number 23, and a basketball to simulate the eye of a cat. Featuring Zoom Air and a Phylon midsole, the XIII was designed to be one of the most comfortable Air Jordans, but the ostrich skin effect on the shoe’s uppers adds an exotic quality to the shoe as well.
