The Nike re-releases keep on coming with the emergence of the Air Jordan XIII He Got Game sneakers.

Officially, these sneakers aren't called He Got Game, however they received this street title due to their growth in popularity tied to the 1998 Spike Lee movie featuring Denzel Washington and Ray Allen. The sneakers were featured several times in that movie and became widely recognizable even to audiences who weren't following Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls at the time.

Michael Jordan wore these shoes during regular season home games in his last year with the Chicago Bulls. Fifteen years after the movie, the Air Jordan XII are back in retail stores. They come in a stark black and white colorway and feature a funky red, white and black sole. White bubbles anchor the bottom section of the shoe giving it an interesting visual appeal.
