BEE KNOWBLES

11/1/1997 retail $150 20yrs ago today the launch cw of the #JordanXIII, and 1st #MichaelJordan signature sneaker of #JordanBrand dropped. I remember the 1st time I seen them. It was after school 7th grade, and a girl got off the bus. I seen them on her feet, and I said to myself “those are ugly!!! They must be the new Jordan’s...” lol. I get home, and the new #EastbayMagazine is in my mailbox. I open it up and boom!!! The #AirJordan13 right there. I thought they were even more ugly, but I wanted to see that hologram, and hidden lacing system. I remember seeing antifreeze on the color description, and directly looked at the hologram on the sole. I thought that was dope too. Like the XII I knew better cw’s had to BEE on the way, and I couldn’t wait to see. The launch cw of the #FoampositePro also dropped 20yrs ago today “Pearls”. #CEOJordan #Jordan13 #Jordan13s #TinkerHatfield #TeamJordan #Jumpman23

@xnsigned__xx yeah after 2005 it started getting trash, and after 2007 a lot of the stuff wouldn’t even make it in the magazine because they started doing emails for the releases and it would sell out so quick smh.

@bee.knowbles I stopped saving them after maybe 2007... Now it's not even worth it. Good seeing all the old prices though and how kicks would go on clearance and it would still be a full size run while on clearance

@xnsigned__xx dope!!! I have all of my eastbay from my 1st issue end of 4th grade June ‘95 to about 2011/‘12 along with other sneaker mags.

Haha we gotta be super close in age because I have all those old eastbay catalogs, finishline & footlocker too. Like boxes of them.

@jdenimthedon_the_lone_wolf just like people confuse the jumpman pro with being a Jordan Brand product, Jordan Brand wasn’t out yet. That’s why the XII & pros come in a Nike box. The 1st signature Jordan Brand product is the XIII. If you go back to the og retail xi low they had no nike logos on the sneaker, so maybe they were gearing up for the brand, but the official release of the brand is 11/1/1997.

@bee.knowbles the actually 1st shoe made from Jordan isn't this is actually the 12s . Hints why it was Branded the very 1st shoe with Jumpman on them.

Jake Kasper
