Unboxed Episode 24: Jordan Retro 14 ‘Last Shot’

Twenty years later and the Jordan 14 is still one of the most iconic silhouettes.

The Jordan 14 silhouette has always been a legendary style. The Jordan 14 ‘Last Shot’ combines a clean and contemporary design. Celebrating twenty years of the model, the Jordan 14 Last Shot was the last pair Michael Jordan wore as a member of the Chicago Bulls.

Jordan created a legacy when he pulled out the Last Shot during the second half of Game 5 of the NBA Finals. He also wore this pair during Game 6 vs the Utah Jazz. Featuring a simple ‘Black’ and ‘Red’ colour combo, the pair is crafted from premium leather on the side panels, whilst suede hits the toe and overlays. The look is rounded off by the now iconic Ferrari emblem.

Legacy

Over the course of 14 years, Michael Jordan created a legacy with Chicago that was laced with unimaginable highlights and gravity-defying shots. On what would become the final shot of his storied career with Chicago, His Airness left us with a parting gift of everlasting basketball greatness.

Playing for his sixth title, MJ’s squad was down one point with under ten seconds to go. With the game and season on the line Michael and the menacingly sleek Black/Varsity Red Air Jordan XIV created space, elevated and drilled the go-ahead basket.

That iconic moment cemented the Air Jordan XIV’s status as an all-time classic. Twenty years after MJ’s championship-sealing bucket was scored, the Air Jordan XIV ‘Last Shot’ is making a triumphant return to its original form. Sporting an aggressive black leather stitched upper, the Air Jordan XIV was inspired by MJ’s love of high speed cars. The influence can be seen on the Jumpman shield that graces the outer panels. Red contrasting side vents served as nods to the Italian carmakers’ fluid mixture of luxury and high performance, two characteristics that became synonymous with the Jordan Brand and MJ’s level of play.
