When it comes to “Best Jordan 13s,” Ray Allen’s White and Green 13s released at House of Hoops in 2011 top many lists. Over the years it’s easily become one of the most coveted Jordan 13s to ever hit retailers. So it’s not very often we get to actually see some of the alternate versions Ray wore while he was still playing.
Today, thanks to English Sole, we share some detailed photos of Ray Allen’s Air Jordan 13 “Alternate” PE that he wore against the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2012.
This offering of the Air Jordan 13 takes on the classic “Bred” Jordan 13 color blocking by swapping out the Bulls Red with Celtics Green. Other details includes Black tumbled leather toe boxes and tongues with 3M side panels. But what stands out most about is the obligatory Ray Allen branded embroidery on each of the tongues.
Though Jordan Brand has gone on to release various different colors using this color blocking, this pair Ray Allen wore back in the day is one collectors have been hoping would release for some time now.
Check out the photos of Ray Allen’s Air Jordan 13 “Alternate” PE below, and we’ll see if this color blocking ever see a retail release.
