Who should buy the Air Jordan 14 Retro Low

The first Air Jordan 14 Low was released in June 1999, or a year after the mid-top. It came in three colorways at $130 each. With the same technologies and materials, the Jordan brand re-released these low-tops throughout the years. This is a solid option for you if:

  • You're looking for an Air Jordan low-top that can still serve style and comfort.
  • You're big on comfort and stability when it comes to your agile game play.

Air Jordan 14 Retro's comfy construction

A large part of the Air Jordan 14 Retro Low’s upper is made of nubuck leather. Its side panels are made of suede. This combination provides comfort and flexibility. The EVA foam on the sides provides protection against ankle rolls. Additional comfort comes from the padding in the inner walls of the shoe.

Air Jordan 14 Retro Low's super style

The Air Jordan 14 Low looks best with jogger or short pants. A reviewer paired his shoe, which is in the Laney colorway, with black jogger pants. The pants should be tucked behind the tongue so that the tongue's yellow bar and Jordan callout will be on display.

The Jumpman logos are found on the forefoot, lateral side, insole, and outsole. The “JORDAN” callouts are found at the top of the tongue and on the outsole. The “XIV” callouts are located on outsole and at the back of the tongue.
