So I compared my Brave Blue(navy) 13s from last year to the ‘23 Playoff 13s… though the differences are minor, they are significant, considering the two are only a year or so apart. It’s mainly the toebox area. Not sure if it’s because of the different material used for the upper(3M vs leather) but the stitching on the Navy’s right there under the Jordan toebox tag is much tighter than on the 2023, taking away from the bulk in that area. Toebox on Navy’s is slimmer and pointy.
I’m not a true reviewer or dissector so…just at work bored lol
What was the energy like for these on NT? Always wanted this colorway(though not exact) as a high! They were a must for me.
Not the best pics, but hope you can see some of the differences
Thanks for taking time to compare and share pictures. I didn't care for those Navy/Black mid XIII since I didn't care for the low top version originally released back in 1998.
It's cool how the 2023 Playoffs XIII look so much better than the Navy/Black XIII in those photos. The Playoffs XIII had more bulk to them, whereas the Navy/Black XIII had a shrunken size to them.
