in the end they had the last laugh

New Jordan Bred 11” Like the 13s the Air Jordan XIVs arrived to a bit of a frosty reception, however, in the end they had the last laugh. What do Michael Jordan in his prime and the Ferrari 550 Maranello have in common dare you ask? Well both were beautiful, sleek, lightning quick, responsive, high-performance machines. Described as ‘essentially flawless’ by one online magazine this was one baller than truly had it all. Engineered with minimal padding and a slimmer design with the intention that the AJXIV was to be an extension of the foot it contained a low-profile Zoom Air support that gave a comfortable yet non-pillowy ride. Along the way, the XIVs started a few trends such as metallic lace tips with jumpman engraving and release in a wide range of daring, experimental colorways such as ‘Oxidized Green’. Perhaps because people were unaccustomed to the new style and Michael had recently retired, the 14s did not sell well initially, however, as buyers adjusted sales picked up. Today, the AJ XIVs, unlike the 13s, are almost universally, widely respected for both their looks and performance; the high prices for deadstock pairs on eBay serve as a reminder of the legacy of the 14s.
