This was the second colorway released for the Air Jordan XIII. They retailed for $150 and came in the new silver box with the red Jumpman on the top, that the previous "black toe" colorway came in. Originally, the samples for this colorway had these with a grey toe area on them, but for one reason or another they scrapped that, and made it white. Interestingly enough, the official colorway of the sample did not change on the finished product even though they no longer had the "grey toe." These were retroed for the first time in 2005, but as a low top. 2010 saw them again, and this time in their true high top fashion. Due to the 2010 release being true to the OG, many people are disregarding the '05 retro now as a true retro of these.
