Launching this Saturday, the Nike AIR JORDAN 13 ‘BLACK CAT’ was designed by the ‘Tinkerman’ himself, Tinker Hatfield, back in 1998 and takes its name and inspiration from Michael Jordan. ‘Black Cat’ was the nickname Jordan earned from his peers during the height of his playing days, and relates to his speed, agility and killer instinct.

What does the silhouette look like? Well, as you might expect, the upper is clad in all-black nubuck, resembling the fur of a panther. If you get up close to a panther (don’t actually do this… just take our word for it) you’ll see that the fur isn’t uniformly black – it’s a series of spots. And if you examine the ‘Black Cat’ closely, you’ll see ‘paw print’-style tooling and a spot-like motif on the mesh overlays. Panthers are nocturnal hunters, so accordingly, the shoe includes reflective 3M detailing, including on the mesh and laces, as well as a cat eye-inspired hologram on the outsole and lateral side of the upper, near the ankle – which light up to mimic a panther’s eyes in the dark.
