Jordan Brand has teamed up with the Christopher Wallace Memorial Foundation to auction 23 pairs of this extremely limited Air Jordan 13 “Christopher Wallace” PE in celebration of the commencement of the “Jordan Year.”
Originally made in 2017 celebrating Biggie’s 45th birthday, but have remained in the vault until 2023 to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of hip-hop.
Dressed in a predominantly Black and Anthracite upper, this extremely rare Air Jordan 13 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.
Sotheby’s online auction begins today and will run until February 3rd, with shoes estimated to sell between $2,300 and $5,200 USD. All proceeds is being remitted to The Christopher Wallace Memorial Foundation, which aims to empower inner city youth with educational learning instruments, sponsorships, grants and community based mentorship programs and campaigns, all in line with its motto, Think B.I.G “Books Instead of Guns.”
