Air Jordan 14 “Ferrari”

Occasionally, kicks come around that provide not only a dash of style, but also a history lesson. The Air Jordan 14 “Ferrari” are those type of kicks. While some may admire these new Jordans for their sleek characteristics and innovative design, it’s important to note where it all stems from.

The original Jordan 14 was greatly influenced by the Ferrari 550M, with a number of homages to the roadster placed throughout the design of the shoe. The first standout feature is the striking chrome midsole accent, referencing the 550M’s exhaust and grill. This is accented by the infamous “shark’s teeth” done up in carbon fiber, another reference to the Ferrari 550M. The shoe comes complete with ventilation ducts at the bottom of the heel to keep you cool. Dorothy wishes she was rockin’ these in Oz.

These jammie jams have also been draped in red suede and slimmed down design-wise; the perforated side panels have been eliminated from the upper’s design. This time around, the jumpman logo near the ankle has been completely bathed in Ferrari yellow.

Although some of the details in the shoe’s design have been removed, the Jordan folks have maintained the shoe’s more original and subtle bits. Utilizing that Ferrari shade of yellow for various hits throughout, these kicks also come with some tire tread on the heel panel.

Nike originally announced these Ferrari inspired 14s were supposed to drop earlier this summer,  on August 16, but now they’ve announced that they will be dropping September 6. Folks can scoop these jammie jams from select Jordan Brand retailers, as well as Nike.com at 10 am EST.
