These Air Jordan 13 “Bred” Will Never Be Stale

September 19, 2012 | 28

The original Black/Red colorway for the Air Jordan 13 is gearing up to drop next year. The classic “Bred” color combination of red and black is always hard to turn away from. This 2013 version looks to stay true to the original and is equipped with the same tumbled leather and nubuck/suede materials. The only difference seems to be the lack of 3M materials from the side panels.

There is no solid release info as of yet, but be sure to stay tuned to the latest updates. Enjoy the detailed images below. Will the lack of 3M change your mind whether or not to cop these 2013 “Bred” AJ 13’s?

    I’m not copping. Even if there was 3m. 13s crease way to much.

  • jojo

    they look dope. but for no 3m, creasing, and $160? some one else can cop.

    i still have a pair from the last retro. i wanted a new pair. since their is no 3m on them which i expected because their weren’t any on the flints. i will be staying away from these. i can’t give jb more money for a shoe when their taking out one of the best features of the shoe. And the tongue is suede now. Bad enough were not even getting the same quality as the old retros.

  • Ben Dover

    Not sure about these, gonna be saving my money for all the 8’s next year and the grape 5’s

  • jmkucine

    Im confused ! The 3m is kinda what the og’s had the makes the sides of the shoes more leathery ?

  • Erv

    whennn do themm fresh Js droppp

  • Sam

    I remember everyone rocking these in college. I wanted them so bad, but my funds weren’t right. I’m definitely copping this time around.

  • Rip Los

    They look fake without the 3m IMO

    Grail 13, but this 3M, or lack there of is a turn-off

  • va

    WANT THE 3M ON THESE! WHY IS IT SO HARD? IT WAS DONE 10 YEARS AGO JUST FINE

  • She Got Sneaks

    No leather tongue or 3m = No cop for me. I’ll leave these for the “real sneaker head’s “.JB always got to F-up something with their cheap selves. Make a Buck of someone else.

  • sirfreshalot

    is this a retro or a remake…

  • G-Phi 2K6

    These will be mine. If I want the 3M I will just wear the retros…

  • Birdman

    Can we stop with all this BRED crap never heard of this name until j brand said it was gonna release the 11’s

  • THAT DUDE

    OG’s never had a leather tongue. For those of you going to make a claim, please google prior to making any statements regarding OG’s. SMH.

  • http://www.sneakraddicts.blogspot.com The SneakrFather

    “that dude” your right it nva had a leather tongue on the retro or the og but it just something about the way this tongue looks now compared to not even the og put the pair from 04. its like the new olive 9’s it just looks off.

  • Screw_zoo

    Those who wont cop, I will 2 pairs. never had j’s as a kid, so i can’t pass up on 90’s retro.

  • aSh

    @jmkucine no…. 3M is a reflective material used on most running shoes… First time used on a Jordan was the Jordan Vs tongue…. See all those little dots on the out side panel? Those should be 3M…. They aren’t therefore these suck!!!! Why I didn’t by the flints which beside these are the only XIIIs I want…. But till JB gets it right they can f@#% off… >:P

  • sneakercritique

    I honestly history aside would be fine without 3m on it I mean Jordan Brand has to do something to set them apart from the og’s & older releases cuz the way I see it in doing so preserves the significance & value of older pairs if I want 3m I’ll buy an ’04 pair of eBay (cost about as much as these will)

  • sneakercritique

    @Birdman granted folks been od’ing on saying bred nowadays but I first heard it used years ago where have you been?

  • Birdman

    @sneaker i have been on the blogs since 06 and have never seen a jordan in association with the word BRED.Now where did you get the word from clue me in. I’m not new to sneaker culture cause everything that has dropped with jumpman logo i copped with the nike logo back in the 90’s. When the ll’s last came out that word was not attached to it.Or maybe i just wanted to overlook the word cause it really means nothing.

  • Stupidfreshkicks

    ^^^^Bred is a compound word us JB fans use as a nickname, it stands for Black & Red. SMH

  • Lem

    I don’t understand the complaints about the lack of 3M. It’s not that big of a deal really. Unless you plan on wearing them at night and waiting for car headlights to reflect the 3M. Other than that 3M is pointless and half of you wouldn’t have known either way if it wasn’t mentioned in the article.

  • sneakernerd123 23

    awesome i love this but 1. no the 3m 2. if this end up like the ’05 and ’10 flint 13 case ima sleep on it paying more for less quality than the old ones pshh….please

  • nowthatsdope

    I my eyes these are way better than the bred 11. You cant go wrong with a solid black and red shoe.
