First released in 1997, the Air Jordan 13 “Flint” has become one of Jordan Brand‘s most famous AJ13 colorways — and now it’s reappearing in color-flipped fashion via a new Air Jordan 13 “Red Flint.” Following closely in the footsteps of the Jumpman’s Spring 2021 retro reveal, the “Red Flint” does just what its name implies: maintains classic “Flint” accents but flips the original style’s signature blue swathes out for a Chicago Bulls-style red hue.

This red is present on both lateral and medial overlays, each of which is made up of pockmarked textile. These sizeable pieces surround a crisp white leather toebox and tongue, each of which features a small dash of black Jordan branding. Heels and the upper’s lower half alike bring OG “Flint” grey suede into the mix, and the lateral collar features a signature bejeweled catseye badge. Midsoles are done up in gray suede as well, with the outsole’s crescent-shaped white rubber outriggers peeping out to finalize the look.

A release date or pricing information for the Air Jordan 13 “Red Flint” has yet to be revealed, but a drop in the first quarter of 2021 seems to be likely.
