Air Jordan 13 Performance Review

The Air Jordan 13 is a well-recognized shoe, not only for its historical significance in the sneaker field, but also for its excellent performance on court. Among the early Air jordans, the Air Jordan 13 is one of the few modes that is still fascinating many people.  So to live up to fans’ affection for Jordan 13, in this review, I  will show more detainls concerning its actual performance.

Whether this pair of shoes can stand up to further tests has always been a heat topic among fans. So today I am here to reveal the answer for you who are concerned about this problem. One of my friends thinks that the setups and design of the shoe are very classic and of vital importance in improving the shoe’s on-court performance. However, compared with the modern sneakers with modern tech, the Jordan 13 will  seem a bit cumbersome. But with its solid materials an dnice design, the downside, I think, is offset. 

The basic materials used respectively are leather upper, sponge filler, conventional rubber outsole, midsole carbon board and Zoom air cushion.

The nearly perfect  stitching design is very helpful and nice and the shoe’s appearance is also outstanding. But a problem is that the toe will wrinkle easily, but not that serious as Air Jordan 1. Also, Air Jordan 13 is very comfortable in the upper which feels nice. After teseting this model, I am here to recommend that whether you want it for actual combat or just for daily wearing, it is a reliable comrade.

The classic separate ZOOM which often appears in Nike shoes is a really nice setup. I should sya that cushioning protection ability of the shoe is quite excellent even if it is the commonly seen tech. But from my perspective, Zoom is a bit too soft, which is not my  preference and makes the startup feedbakc somewhat inferior. But this only results in a somewhat poor court feel, its shock protection is actually good.

The outsole of the shoe is not only nice but also practical. The herringbone pattern, commonly seen though, grips well. And the combination of huge chassis and hercules endow this shoe efficient grip, providing a stable and reliable grip experience both indoors and outdoors.

I worried most about the wrapping of this Jordan 13 before I tested it. But surprisingly, after some  actual experience, instead of frustrating me, the shoe, I found, was most fantastic in its wrapping. But do pay attention that the size I bought is smaller than my usual one. Here’s a tip: when tying your shoes, push your heels back and tighten the laces as you do so to maximize the overall feel of the shoe.

The grain of sole looks very dense and very thick, but the sole rubber may not stand up to intense exercises or it it will worn out in no time. But as can be seen that the shoe is very thick in the sole, hence,  it is difficult to be worn out, either. And from an objective point, this is no a bad choice if you want a practical outdoor sneaker.

for breathability, maybe you won’t be expecting too much of it. The solid leather materials has  inevitably caused venting problems based on my experience. But to my surprise, the air holes on the tongue is not decoration to some extent or at least, you may sometimes find it is working. Overall, the breathability may equal that of Hyperdunk X.

in short, while many years have passed, the Air Jordan 13 still has a high combat status, and it’s the only shoe I am quite satisfied with. The solid setups, and the materials of the shoe is worth to be awared as “the brave warrior” on court. Anyway, you can just have a try and see if it can live up to your expectation.

AIR JORDAN DMP PACK Performance Review

I’ve finally come across a pair of shoes that impressed me at the first sight and it was at the first sight that I was given to it. The shoes are the AIR JORDAN DMP PACK. There is something in the shoes. The “DMP” in AIR JORDAN DMP PACK means Defining Moments Pack. The shoe is comprised of platinum AIR JORDAN XIII and black gold AIR JORDAN XIV and is made in homage to Michael Jordan’s winning in the 1998 NBA finals where he wore the Air Jordan XIII and Air Jordan XIV.

The fact is that on one would have thought that the 6th match consolidated his status in the basketball field in addition to representing the end of an era.

The AIR JORDAN XIII is mainly decent white in its appearance and decorated by a gorgeous gold. Besides that, the leather of the shoes is something that I must talk about.

The classic laser panther eye of Air Jordan XIII in Air Jordan DMP Pack is a far cry from the previous edition, which indicates Michael Jordan’s breathtaking image of “THE SHOT” and “98” in game 6 of 1998. So, because of this design alone, I think many fans will take a fancy to this pair of shoes.

The tongues of  Air Jordan XIII are respectively printed with “THEY CAN’T WIN” and “UNTIL WE QUIT”. I wanna say that the shoes are fantastic and they are “going rampant” on streets someday.

The other shoe of the AIR JORDAN DMP PACK is the black gold AIR JORDAN XIV, which echoes the platinum AIR JORDAN XIII. Somehow, I found that, from my own perspective, the sheer black leather in the upper is as impressive as the shiny gold at the collar and mid-sole support. And somewhat the shoes are unique and superb.

For my money, AIR JORDAN XIII  and AIR JORDAN XIV of Air Jordan DMP Pack are already inviting. However, the fact is that the shoe box is as well compelling and striking. Just a glimpse of it will make you fascinated and wonder what is more fascinating inside it. With the eye-catching black and the gold letters in the front of the shoe box being the first bewitching point, most fans just can not resist its temptation. 

And of course, the “1998” and JUMPMAN LOGO must not be absent in the shoe box. They are on behalf of those impressing events before.

Not with the exception of the shoe box, the lining paper inside also has printings the same as that on the box.

You can as well surprisingly find that there are prints of Michael Jordan’s game data, which is quite rare.


In summary, this pair of shoes are not an average one. There are some stories behind AIR JORDAN DMP PACK and somehow you may be given to it just like me. In the hope that you may love the shoe and find it helpful, I think  it more important that it suits you rather than blindly following the trend.
