The moldy Air Jordan issue isn’t dead after all. Select pairs of Air Jordan 13 “Chicago” have been sent out to unsuspecting customers by apparently unaware retail staff, bringing to light a bit of a quality control issue from the recent past.
Photos show traces of mold on a customer’s pair of the $190 retros that released last Saturday, rendering the shoes fit only for return, refund, and destroy. The sight evokes memories of the Air Jordan 1 KO “Bred” mold problem in late summer 2015, with certain pairs of the canvas sneaker splattered with green mold and mildew. The quick guess for the recurrence is some sort of seal defect in the containers Nike used to ship the shoes from China to the United States.
Check out to Instagram photos of this unfortunate fan’s moldy Air Jordan 13s, and let us know if you or a friend have had to deal with the issue.
