We might all enjoy different types of sneakers, whether they be runners, trainers, skate shoes or basketball shoes, but there is no denying that Michael Jordan has had more influence on the sneaker community than any other person.
On this day in 1998, Michael led the Bulls to his final NBA Championship wearing the Air Jordan 14 (XIV). The classic Chicago away colorway of the Jordan 14, featured a black leather and suede upper with red accents. It would later become known commonly as “Last Shots” thanks to the picturesque pose that MJ made after hitting, what would become, the game winning basket against the Utah Jazz in the 1998 NBA Finals.
The Jordan 14 featured design elements inspired by the Ferrari MJ was driving at the time, specifically the shape of the “shield” Jumpman logo. It also included a sophisticated cooling system that was referred to as “air conditioning” back in the day. It also featured seven Jumpman logos on each shoe, which added up to 14 total per pair, the number of this iconic Jordan sneaker. The Last Shot edition was most recently released as a retro in late 2005 and has been a sought after shoe to many sneakerholics since its 1998 origins.
