The Air Jordan 13 “Class of 2002” from Jordan Brand’s “Graduation” Pack is scheduled to make its retail debut this very month on September 15 at a price of $190. This Air Jordan 13 colorway paid homage to Carmelo Anthony’s high school graduation. Of courses, this pack also consisted of an Air Jordan 10 and an Air Jordan 12 that similarly paid homage to Russell Westbrook’s and Chris Paul’s high school graduations, respectively. Apparently, Jordan Brand has been working on another graduation-themed Air Jordan 13 colorway. So, next year’s Air Jordan releases 2019 are going to include a colorway of the model dubbed “Cap And Gown.”
As you may have figured out by now, this Air Jordan 13 colorway for next year does indeed draw inspiration from the Air Jordan 11 “Cap And Gown.” The Air Jordan 11 “Cap And Gown” or “Prom Night” made its retail debut earlier this year on May 26th at a price of $250. Although unconventional, it was not uncommon for avid sneakerheads to lace up in an Air Jordan pair for their graduation ceremony or prom night. Hence, this year Jordan Brand decided to whip up an Air Jordan 11 iteration that looked elegant and formal enough to be worn at such semi-formal events.
Like the Air Jordan 11 it shares its nickname with, next year’s Ari Jordan 13 “Cap And Gown” has been designed so that graduating sneakerheads may rock it with a suit or tuxedo. The image of the Air Jordan 13 you see above is actually a Photoshop rendition, but it will likely resemble the Air Jordan 11 “Cap And Gown.” Hence, it will similarly be all-Black and may even potentially feature patent leather detailing over its tumbled leather uppers. As of now, there are no specific release details for the Air Jordan 13 “Cap And Gown.” Nonetheless, it will be among the Air Jordan releases 2019 arriving in summer.
