The Air Jordan 13 Flint 2020 will be the 4th time the Flint is being reintroduced into the market. The last time it released was back in 2010, It was rumored to release in 2017 but that got canceled.

Let’s get into a bit of history and see what sets this sneaker apart from the rest.

Skip to conclusion for those in a hurry.

Air Jordan 13 History/The Black Cat

Michael Jordan in his Air Jordan 13

Tinker Hatfield was again the Mastermind behind the design for the Air Jordan 13. It was his brainchild after being inspired by Michael’s play style which he said was like a “Panther”

What he meant as, Michael would watch his team mates, calculate and then pounce like a cat. Just like that, before you knew it, Michael had the ball and was slamming dunks.

Interestingly enough. “Black Cat” is what Michael’s team mates called him any way so the name stuck. That’s when Hatfield decided to make the most unique Air Jordan ever.

Have you ever seen the sole of an Air Jordan 13? You’ll find that it looks like a panther paw which is not a coincidence but by design. Hatfield wanted the sneaker to resemble a Panther in some way.

Near the heel of the Air Jordan 13 you’ll find a round Hologram. On it you can see a jump-man logo, the number “23” and a basketball. They look really cool but they have a down side.

Over time the hologram may get fogged up or the white variant tends to bleed which could be annoying. This was a very common occurrence on the OG Jordan 13.

Air Jordan 13 Models

Air Jordan 13 Colorways

Between 1997 and 1998, 5 models of the air Jordan 13 High released for $150. 2 models of the Air Jordan 13 Low released for $130 and they kept on making comebacks later on.

In 2004 and 2005, 6 colorways for the Air Jordan 13 re-released and did very well as they sold out. They were again sold for $150 with 6 colorways of the Low top releasing for $130.

The Air Jordan 13 flint was re-released for the first time in 2005. Then later on it was re-released again in 2010 and planned for a 2017 re-release as well which was canceled.

For the Air Jordan 13 Flint 2020, let’s look at a few similar examples to estimate it’s resale value.

Jordan 13 Retro Low Brave Blue

Retail Price: $175

Peak resell: $369

Release Date: 04/08/2017

Colorway: Brave Blue/Metallic-Silver-black

A very similar colorway to the Air Jordan 13 Flint 2020, especially with the upper. These haven’t done too well on the resale side with only amounting to minor lunch money.

According to StockX, the trade range is between $209-$221 with the average price being $186. That’s an average $5 in profit before service fees and taxes.

The over-all value rose slightly after “The last Dance Documentary”. Had you sold these at their peak resale value, profit would have been a decent $194.

Jordan 13 Retro Flint 2005

Retail Price: $150

Peak Resell: $550

Release Date: 04/19/2005

Colorway: French Blue/University Blue-Flint Grey

These are almost identical to the Air Jordan 13 Flint 2020 and the Air Jordan 13 1998. However, with minor differences. The upper comes in a different shade of blue than the previous model.

Lastly, as far as the materials are concerned, the blue insole is replaced with a grey one. These are also doing quite well on the resale market.

According to StockX, trade range is between $285-$375 with the average price being $332. That’s a very good average profit of $182 before tax and service fees, per pair.

Had you sold these at peak resale, profit would have been $400. That’s pretty good resale. However, let’s look at the most recent colorway to help us make the best estimate.

Jordan 13 Retro Flint 2010

Retail Price: $160

Peak Resell: $540

Release Date: 11/26/2010

Colorway: French Blue/University Blue-Flint Grey

Also identical to the other colorways, there are the same differences as well. A different tone of blue is used on the upper with a different colored insole.

On the other hand, the quality did not seem to be the same either. Reports suggest that this was a poorly constructed variant with seemingly low quality materials used.

The resale value however, is decent. The trade range is between $283-$367 with the average price being $364. That’s an average profit of $204 before tax and service fees which is decent.

Had you sold these at peak resale, profit would have been $380. That’s a good indication that the AIR Jordan 13 Flint 2020 may have good resale value.

Air Jordan 13 Flint 2020 Retro

Retail Price: $190 (Adult)

Estimated Resell: $250

Release Date: 05/30/2020

Colorway: Navy/Flint-Grey-White-University-Blue

The Air Jordan 13 Flint is back in its most original form. This version mimics the original with the entire side panel being 3M reflective. This will be releasing in full family sizing.

The paneling on the side comes in navy while the toe has a pebbled white leather covering it. The heel and mudguards have a Flint grey sued on it providing a nice contrast.

The tongue is also white with the university blue jump-logo on each and white laces as well. Finally, the signature hologram on the heel and a jump-man logo inside finishes off the design.

Take a closer look with these official pictures.

Resale Value

There is a lot of hype behind these sneakers but they’re not expected to be very limited. That means there is money to be made, just not too much of it.

The Air Jordan 13 Flint 2020 is expected to resale for around $250 which is $60 in profit before tax and service fee.

It may be higher than that depending on how limited they are and the impact of “The Last Dance” documentary.

So far resale is looking good according to StockX.

As you can see, they’ve already been sold for as high as $675. Expect the grade school sizes to do relatively good as well.

Where to Cop

As always with Jordan releases, they’re confirmed to be at the SNKRS application and select stockists. They may not be too hard to get your hands on so manual copping should work out.

If you fail to cop, you can get them from re-seller websites such as StockX and GOAT. Furthermore, you can quick flip these or hold on to them, as I mentioned they may not be very limited.

Once stock runs out the value may increase overtime.
