One of the more underrated Jumpman silhouettes from the 90s is the Air Jordan 13. Although this shoe is cemented in pop culture, it doesn't get the same love as some other models. That said, there are a ton of fans out there who know that this is a great shoe. Consequently, Jumpman has delivered for these fans by releasing a whole bunch of amazing colorways. Even 25 years later, the Jordan 13 is still getting new offerings, as well as some cool retros that bring the nostalgia in heavy doses.

Throughout 2023, Jordan Brand has plans to celebrate this special anniversary for the Air Jordan 13. After all, Jumpman celebrates the major birthdays of all of its silhouettes. Furthermore, there are plenty of vintage AJ13 colorways that have yet to get the retro treatment. There are some great models that fans have been waiting for, and it appears as though Jordan Brand has been listening. We know this because one of the Jordan 13s set for 2023 is the "Wheat" offering, found below.

"Wheat" Air Jordan 13

This is a model that was originally created all the way back in 2004. It has been about 20 years since we have seen it back on the market, and fans have been starving for its release. According to @zsneakerheadz, fans will not have to wait that much longer. Although, you should not expect a release in time for the summer. Firstly, this colorway is known for having a white leather upper. From the tongue to the toe box to the side panels, we get a heavy dosage of white. Secondly, wheat is found on the mudguard and the back heel. Overall, these elements come together to create a shoe that is perfect for the colder weather.

As for the release date, these are rumored to drop on December 26th of 2023. However, it should be noted that this release date has not yet been confirmed by Jordan Brand. Having said that, stay tuned to HNHH for the latest news from around the sneaker world. Additionally, let us know what you think of this retro, down in the comments section below.
