The majority of you have been anticipating the multiple, major Jordan Brand releases of this holiday season. We knew about the “Flint” Air Jordan 13s, the Air Jordan 13 White/Black-True Red and the “Cool Grey” Air Jordan 11s for some time now; however, just recently, we learned of the “Altitude” Air Jordan 13 re-release. While we await this special release, check out this highly-detailed comparison between the 2005 and 2010 versions of the “Altitude” Air Jordan 13.
As we have mentioned in previous post, the newest versions opts for a black ballistic mesh covering (seen on the recently released “Flint” Air Jordan 13s) on the side panels instead of the dimpled leather texture seen on the 2005 version. Some of you were disgusted with the change, while others have welcomed it. Another change we have noticed from this detailed comparison is the shades of Altitude Green. The 2010 version seems to feature a brighter shade of green, specifically seen on the Jumpman logo (tongue) and on various sections of the outsole. What are your thoughts on this comparison? Are you pleased with the new, 2010 version or do you prefer the 2005 released “Altitude” Air Jordan 13? View the comparison in its entirety below.
