As the last shoe Michael Jordan ever took the court with the Chicago Bulls in, the Air Jordan 14 holds a special place in Jordan Brand history, and now it’s set to release in a high-rev “Gym Red” makeup. With colorblocking that lends itself aptly to the AJ14’s Ferrari-inspired ethos, the “Gym Red” provides a fresh-yet-familiar look for a latter-day Air Jordan classic.
Uppers are constructed largely of fiery red nubuck, with black nubuck toeboxes and mesh tongues serving up contrast. Heels add a race-ready black rubber bumper with bold, elongated white “23” hits and a small Jumpman graphic. A smaller Jumpman is placed at the bottom of the throat, and red Jordan text is present at the top of the tongue. Signature detail arrives via the badge-like jeweled shield on the quarter, and the top half is rounded off by black trim on the asymmetrical collar.
Midsoles are constructed from white EVA foam, with toothed anchors rising onto the forefoot. Further stability is handled by a ridged, jet black carbon fiber midfoot plate, while Zoom Air loaded into heel and forefoot alike provides still potent cushioning. Black herringbone outsoles finish the look.
The Air Jordan 14 “Gym Red” will see a staggered release, hitting European stockists like Titolo on June 23 before arriving at US outposts like Foot Locker come July 2. Full family sizes will be available, and men’s pairs are priced at $190 USD.
