Travis Hatfield’s Air Jordan XIV has become one of the more iconic Jordan sneakers due to its unique place in history. It will always be recognized as being the sneaker that the brand’s namesake cemented his legacy with by nailing the game-winning shot in the 1998 NBA Finals.
That jumper over Byron Russell secured Jordan’s sixth NBA championship and the shoe has since gone on to tell the story of his legacy. Recently, there have been several modified designs associated with the Air Jordan 14.
The Jordan Jumpman Z is adding another twist to the well-known sole of the XIV with a futuristic upper that features a zippered closure over the mid-foot shroud. There are four different colorways that will be released: classic black/red, a Sacramento Kings-inspired look, a flight-jacket theme and a lifestyle palette that is also being used in one of the new Air Jordan 33 kicks.
Nike has already revealed how each of the four sneakers looks. A release date could be imminent and the Jordan Jumpman Z will retail for $160.
