8. Heel

The unusual Jordan 13 heel has very little exposed stitching, aside from a circle around the hologram. Check that the stitching is tight and straight.

12. Embroidered XIII

On the underside of the tongue flap is a "XIII" embroidered in the same style. Make sure the stitching is tight and even, and the typeface used is correct.

18. Lace Loops

Nike Air Jordan 13 Black Cats have lace loops on the underside of the upper. Check how they are joined to the upper, and look specifically at the full-length stitch line running below each lace loop. Make sure the stitching is tight, neat and evenly spaced.

24. Carbon Arch

Nike Air Jordan 13 Black Cats have carbon fiber support under the outsole. Look closely at how the checkerboard carbon fiber pattern can be seen when it catches the light. The carbon fiber is not smooth, and should have rough texture. This is also an opportunity to have a close look at the texture of the outsole rubber.
