Air Jordan 14 Retro Low “Varsity Royal”

As the last sneaker Michael Jordan wore during his time with the Chicago Bulls, the Air Jordan 14 is one of the silhouettes fans have memories of MJ playing in before his retirement. This sneaker was designed by Tinker Hatfield who got his inspiration from the Ferrari that MJ was driving. The design is evident on the side panels, branding, and the “vents” on the midsole.

The Air Jordan 14 “Varsity Royal” borrows colors from Jordan’s high school alma mater, Emsley A. Laney High School. The school’s colors are royal blue and gold, and the Jordan brand has dressed these kicks to pay tribute to MJ’s high school days. The upper is royal blue nubuck with a black nubuck toe, black laces, and tongue. The Jordan branding on the silhouette is gold, and is reminiscent of Ferrari symbols. The midsole is white with the aforementioned black “vents,” and the outsole is black with a herringbone pattern for traction.

The sneaker features a sleek one piece design, and inside lacing molds for a secure, comfortable fit. The enclosed Zoom Air units in the forefoot and heel support the foot with superior cushioning. Each shoe has seven Jumpman logos giving the pair a total of 14 on the AJ 14’s.

The Air Jordan 14 Retro Low “Varsity Royal” will be available on Saturday, Oct. 3rd, in stores only. Cop a pair in Men’s for $170 for a sleek remembrance of MJ’s high school days.
