Burn rubber like MJ himself in the Air Jordan 14 Retro ‘Hyper Royal’

“Shoe as car, or car as shoe,” mused Nike designer Tinker Hatfield in one of the original sketches that inspired the Air Jordan 14 back in the late 1990s.

Inspiration came directly from MJ’s Ferrari 550 Maranello, because he “wanted to feel like a race car, close to the ground,” he wrote in his 2005 autobiography Driven From Within.

And like the fine Italian sports cars that Michael Jordan favored, the AJ14 came out sleek, speedy and aesthetically pleasing.

While Jordan wore the 14 in his last game as a Chicago Bull in the 1998 NBA Finals, it was relatively underappreciated and received little spotlight.

But Jumpman is giving plenty of attention to the silhouette this fall with the release of the Air Jordan 14 Retro ‘Hyper Royal,’ a brand-new colorway on the 1990s model.

Titular royal-blue hits on the midsole, tongue and heel tab leap off of the all-white leather upper which boasts perforated side panels for maximum breathability.
