During Shop Jordans 2022,Inspired by Jordan's Ferrari 550 M, the Air Jordan XIV was designed by Tinker Hatfield and Mark Smith. They feature a leather upper, aerodynamic lines, mesh vents, Zoom Air in the heel and forefoot, an asymmetrical collar, Ferrari-like Jumpman shield, and metal-tipped laces.One of the best original colorways of the Air Jordan 14, the “Black Toe” edition made a triumphant return in 2014.The speedy Ferrari-inspired silhouette features a full-grain leather upper in white with a contrasting black nubuck toe and red accents for the most unique original color block of the high-performance model.
Though reissued a few times, the Air Jordan 14 Retro was originally released in 1999. Like its inspiration, this sports car-inspired design features a black overlay at the toe, but unlike the Jordan 1, the majority of the upper appears in white. Varsity Red touches are limited to the branding and the heel, while the silhouette’s signature Jumpman badge stands out near the ankle.Regarded as an exceptional sneaker on the basketball court, this was the last Air Jordan model Michael ever wore in a Chicago Bulls jersey.
Rounding up the design of the Air Jordan 1 Low Arctic Pink is an eye catching full gum rubber sole unit.The upper of the shoe features a tonal light pink premium leather construction contrasted by white midfoot Swooshes. The contrasting touches are continued by the Jumpman embroidery on the tongue, Wings markings at the rear, “23” lace holders and printed insoles.The Air Jordan 1 Low did in fact touch bases with the skate crowd over the last couple of years; a few Air Jordan 1 Low SB releases connected the dots between the AJ1’s role in skate culture with the help of Eric Koston and Lance Mountain, while NOLA-based boutique Sneaker Politics made the AJ1 Low the centerpiece of its own Jordan-centric skate club that shed a spotlight on the local skating community
