Rumors abound the Air Jordan 14 “Candy Cane” is coming for you this September 2018. The retro design of the Air Jordan 14 began in 1999. Although the Black and Varsity Red colorways that would make the shoes instantly memorable, the high-performing sneakers were never actually worn by Michael. The athletic footwear’s inspiration who did not don the AJ 14s in a single game with the NBA.
The Air Jordan 14 “Candy Cane” Whip Appeal
AJ 14s’ 2012 version is fitted with Jordan Number 23 and right above it, the MJ “Jumping Man” leaping. At the upper heel, the rim is lined in red and in red with black along the lower sides of the shoes.
Why the September 2018 Air Jordan 14 “Candy Cane” Rumor?
The Red and White sneaks’ ‘design confection’ whips up some sweet appeal. Retailers waffled about whether the AJ 14s’ apparel even existed and if they’d reach the street for the Labor Day 2018 weekend.
Why all the hubbub, bub? The shoes’ upcoming ‘holiday’–and retro release centers on the final B-Ball shot Michael Jordan made in a June 14 game back in 1998. Where MJ played on Chicago Bulls against the Utah Jazz in the NBA Finals. And the shoes’ 2018 will release again to commemorate that iconic day.
The shoes sides’ feature dotted rows that add a layer of style to the AJ’s signature construction. And these kicks are a definite trek to MJ’s A-Game, 20 years in the making.
