Michael Jordan in the Air Jordan XIII

Today in Performance Sneaker History: Jordan Hits 5000 Assists in the Air Jordan XIII

Previously featured by Sneaker Report as one of Michael Jordan’s best moments in the Air Jordan XIII “He Got Game”, his showing on April 11, 1998 was impressive on a number of levels. Not only did Jordan annihilate the Orlando Magic’s defense with 37 points, but he also grabbed four steals and four rebounds. But wait, there’s more: Mike also dished two assists, which put him at 5,000 total throughout his career. Jordan finished off with 5,633, which isn’t quite enough to crack the top thirty, but is an impressive number nonetheless.

As mentioned, Jordan was wearing the Air Jordan XIII White/Black/True Red colorway, also known as the “He Got Game”. This landmark model re-released last month and sold out immediately, but can be found on eBay if you’re looking for a pair. With a supportive Carbon Fiber shank plate, Zoom Air cushioning, and a durable leather upper, the Air Jordan XIII remains popular with players today.
