The Christopher Wallace Air Jordan XIII.
Originally created in 2017, in celebration of Wallace’s 45th birthday, the Christopher Wallace Air Jordan XIII has remained under lock and key, until recently.
Now, in 2023, the year that represents Jordan’s iconic number and the 50th anniversary of Hip Hop, Jordan Brand, and the Christopher Wallace Memorial Foundation are auctioning 23 pairs exclusively at Sotheby’s.
Dressed in a predominantly black and anthracite upper, The Christopher Wallace Air Jordan XIII features images and phrases that celebrate The Notorious B.I.G., his legacy, and the belief and determination of the icon.
A silhouette of Wallace is featured on both tongues, and a classic red and black flannel pattern, synonymous with The Notorious B.I.G. is throughout the sock liner and insoles.
On the tongue tag, the infamous phrases “It was all a dream” and “If you don’t know, now you know”, are featured, and the word “dream” is dawned on the metal aglets.
In this size, 9, only 3 pairs will be made available for purchase via auction.
*100% of the Hammer price is being remitted to The Christopher Wallace Memorial Foundation. The Buyers Premium and Overhead Premium will be retained by Sotheby’s. No portion of the purchase price is tax-deductible.
