Since the '80s, Air Jordans have been at the forefront of sneakers. Michael Jordan's Nikes became his own when they first lost the Swoosh with the Air Jordan II. Since then, the Jumpman has become one of the most-recognized logos in the world. Jordan still pushes out some of the most ground-breaking performance basketball shoes today (hello, Air Jordan XX8) but new Jordans have become overshadowed by Retro Jordans for a lot of sneakerheads. Whether you're into new Jordans or retro Jordans, there is one thing that is certain—Jordan Brand is the leader of the sneaker game. With that said, 2013 has seen a healthy mix of new designs and retro sneakers in the mix that help Jordan Brand keep that title firmly in hand, or rather laced up. This year we've seen the iconic Grape Air Jordan 5 return, multiple classic colorways of the Air Jordan 1, along with new styles for Melo, CP3 and the signature Air Jordan model, the Air Jordan XX8. Check out The Best Air Jordans of 2013 (So Far) and let us know which your favorite Jordans have been in 2013.
