Released back in October 2014, the Air Jordan 13 “Barons” made its debut honoring Michael Jordan’s time spent playing for the minor league baseball team, Birmingham Barons following his initial retirement from the NBA.
Today, thanks to English Sole, we get a look at an “Barons Alternate” Sample of what the pair could’ve looked like.
With this Air Jordan 13 Sample we see a lot of swapping around of the different materials that made up the retail release. Instead of the holographic patent on the heel portion of the shoe, the sample uses the material on the side panels instead. It also comes with White tumbled leather toe box instead of the Grey, and reverts to the familiar Black suede heel while hits of Tropical Teal remain on the tongues as well as each of the soles.
Check out the detailed photos of the Air Jordan 13 “Barons Alternate” Sample below, and don’t expect a retail release to happen anytime soon.
