This holiday some very memorable Jordans are dropping, and perhaps the most memorable shoe in MJ’s career releases in the Jordan XIV “Last Shot.” You can bet Bryon Russell will be copping a pair to keep his family warm this Christmas by feeding his fireplace with ‘em. These are nearly identical to the Last Shots that previously released in 2005, with very minor alterations.
The upper rocks a ribbed black tumbled leather on the side panel with perforations, only this years models emphasizes the tumbling. Another slight difference is the toe box features a smoother nubuck suede with a lighter tone of black, which also falls on the lateral heel portion of the upper. The midsole and midsole “claws” are a glossy black, with varsity red accents throughout the midsole and outsole. The inspiration for the shoe is again defined by the Ferrari-style Jumpman logo on the side with a capturing yellow. The rest of the details stay true to the OG and ’05 version, other than the XIV on the inside of the tongue being grey rather than red. Varsity Red highlights the remaining Jumpman brands, rear 23, and Jordan name on the tongue.
These joints drop December 17th for $160 and will have you balling up your receipt, shooting it into the nearest trash can, and standing holding your follow through with no chance of returning em. Just make sure you don’t push off, and have enough saved for the Concords a week later.
