We all remember that crazy time when Kobe Bryant was in sneaker free-agency and pulled out some dope kicks every night. You may recall that back when Bryant was in limbo and had no brand to call home, he rocked everything from Jordan to Reebok to Converse and even And1’s. If he was still playing today then these Retro’s would have been absolutely perfect for him to lace up. Now, Jordan is doing a ‘Rivals Pack’ this year that is supposed to be a nod to when Michael Jordan defeated the Los Angeles Lakers in the 1990-91 NBA Finals and he earned his first NBA Championship.
This super clean Retro 13 comes dressed in a the elite Laker makeup of White, Black, Court Purple and University Gold, respectively. The sneakers features a premium tumbled White leather upper with the JB signature quilted overlay that dominates the shoes sides, and is complimented by Court Purple nubuck on the heel, mudguard and upper section of the midsole. Finally, it all sits atop a Black midsole that has University Gold accents on the outsole which solidifies the Lakers theme, and we can’t forget the model’s signature circular holographic logo on the back heel.
