Like I've stated in previous articles, the retro 13 is one of my least favorite retro models. They have an odd shape with a weird narrow toe. However if I were to buy a pair of 13s it would probably be the pair pictured above. If you are unfamiliar with Michael Jordan, he took a brief break from basketball to try baseball. He played for a minor league team the Barons sporting the number 45. Like in popular lyric from Jay-Z's song "Encore": "come back like Jordan wearin the 45". Anyways he failed terribly at baseball and returned promptly to being the best basketball player to ever live. So, on Baron model retros like the retro 9s, they actually feature the number 45 instead of 23 on the back heel. Back to why I like these 13s, they are simple black and white plus they offer the 3M reflective on the midsole. I am a huge sucker for 3M. Anyways these would totally be a cop for me If I didn't just spend a ton of money on gear. Which brings me to my final point: sorry for the lateness of this post as I am currently in Milan, Italy and am posting this on my Iphone from my hotel room. Thanks guys, and good luck tomorrow morning if you're going after these! Be sure to check out the sites I've referenced in my info post.
