Sneaks on the Ave: Jordan CMFT Viz Air 13 ‘White/Cement’

Many sneakerheads consider 1987 Nike's strongest year on record, and with the debut of the Air Jordan II, Nike Air Max 1, Air Safari and Air Trainer 1, it's certainly a credible claim.  This new Jordan CMFT Viz Air 13 borrows the AM1's cushion, but nearly everything else on this design comes from newer stuff than the Eighty-Sevens.  It starts with Elephant print on the mudguard to connect with '88s Air Jordan III but then zooms forward nearly a decade thanks to the AJXI-style patent leather on that section.  The design earns its name thanks to AJ13-esque dimpled quilting on the upper vamp and this classic Chicago 'home' colorway is as timeless as the models upon which this design draws.
