UPDATE: Expect these dropping at select Foot Locker doors alongside a string of boutique retailers commencing tomorrow, August 2.
Sometimes Jordan's algorithm for what retros get brought back at a particular time makes sense, like the AJ6 getting put in the spotlight this year because it's celebrating its 23rd anniversary – other times there seems no rhyme or reason. The Air Jordan 14 is scoring some shine this year, we don't really know why, but we're not gonna start moaning about it. Although the line may have peaked a bit too soon when images of that Red Suede leaked, there's still plenty of goodness gas left in the design tank, and this latest Sport Blue release might get your engine revving. Though its coat is mainly wolf grey with little lashings of blue, it likely gets its namesake from the Sport Blue OG AJ6 that is also coming out soon – so that makes this AJ14 another to imitate the colourway of a more famous predeccesor, like the Thunder we saw recently. The Air Jordan 14 'Sport Blue' is due to drop on August 2 this year, at stockists including Wish ATL.
