A new retro of Michael Jordan’s famous Ferrari shoes is set to come out soon. The Air Jordan 14 Retro Oxidized Green is inspired by a world-class automobile and made for the world-class athlete.
The Air Jordan 14 was first released in 1998. It was the pair of sneakers Michael Jordan wore when he hit the game-winning shot over Utah Jazz small forward Bryon Russell in his last game with the Chicago Bulls in Game 6 of the 1998 NBA Finals.
Nike released the first Air Jordan 14 Retro in 2005. It was followed by re-releases in 2006, 2008, 2011, 2012 and 2014 to 2016. The upcoming retro of Michael Jordan’s 14th signature shoe stays true to an OG colorway and carries over many aspects of the 1998 model.
According to Nike.com, the Air Jordan 14 Retro Oxidized Green features a predominantly white leather upper with black, blue and green accents. It contains dual Zoom Air units on the midsole while breathable mesh vents adorn the outsole.
Air Jordan 14 Retro Traction and Support
The herringbone pattern on the Air Jordan 14 Retro Oxidized provides decent traction on both outdoor and indoor courts. For long-lasting grip, consistent wiping is needed, especially on dusty courts.
Weartesters pointed out that the beefy thermoplastic polyurethane shank plate on the Air Jordan 14 ensures maximum torsional support for the wearer. The shoe is also perfect for players who prefer court feel since its fairly low to the ground.
The shoe fits true to size, but wide footers are advised to try the shoe first before purchasing it. The white leather upper will eventually stretch and conform to the foot. Wide footers will have to decide if they want to stay true to size or go half a size up.
