Air Jordan XIV (Light Graphite)

It’s been a while since we’ve seen the Air Jordan XIV get a retro, but it’s time once again for this very interesting shoe to be reissued.

The XIV is one of those designs within the Air Jordan line that causes debate and the inevitable disgusted responses in the comment box below (we welcome it), while also getting a healthy dose of appreciation from many fans. Worn by Michael Jordan during his last Chicago Bulls game against the Utah Jazz back in 1998, and known for being the shoe that was worn for the ‘Last Shot’ during that game, the XIV is one futuristic affair even until this day.

This release sees the reissue of the Light Graphite make-up. AJ’s seem to take well to grey and is always seems to be an excellent alternative to the original palette of red, black, white and red. The application of grey and dark navy on this version works, and is an awesome alternative to those usual Bulls colours. If you’re wondering where this futuristic design came from, it was inspired by  MJ’s Ferrari and it’s also a design that represents once again how much of a creative mastermind Tinker Hatfield is.

Available from Crooked Tongues now.
