Altitude Air Jordan 13s Release in December Originally released in 2005, the "Altitude" Air Jordan 13 was one of the first non-OG colorways to transcend the hype of originals. The colorway returned in 2010, but underwhelmed a bit after Jordan Brand decided to replace its famous tumbled leather upper with ballistic mesh. However, they're making things right this fall with the shoe's third chapter. Recently pegged for Black Friday, the "Altitude" Air Jordan 13 is rumored to now be releasing on Thursday, Dec. 21. It would appear that Jordan Brand will be using the holiday's energy to move the retro, which will be back with the full leather upper.
