There are 13 seconds left on the game clock. Michael Jordan has the ball at the top of the key, and he begins to charge to the basket. With a full head of steam, MJ completes a cross over that brings Bryon Russell to his knees. Then, he pulls up to knock down one of the greatest shots of all time, clinching a Game 6 win over the Utah Jazz in the ’98 finals.
That image of Jordan’s final shot is burned into the memory of fans across the world, and what sneaker did he have on? The Air Jordan 14, of course. Since that moment, the AJ 14 has held a special place in the hearts of many sneaker enthusiasts.
