The Air Jordan 14 will forever be linked to Michael Jordan’s iconic last shot against the Utah Jazz to win his sixth and final championship. However, Jordan Brand took the shoe in a different direction in 2011. A young Jordan burst into prominence with a national championship winning jumper as a freshman at University of North Carolina. That game was against the formidable Georgetown Hoyas, and exactly one year ago this particular colorway released, paying homage to that game. The graphite upper was highlighted by navy and white on the major accents similar to the Hoya uniforms.
The Air Jordan 14 “Light Graphite” sneaker was met with differing opinions. Many Jordan fans missed the connection between MJ’s “last shot,” and his essential “first shot”. Did you understand why the shoe had a Georgetown Hoya feel to it? Did you cop these when they dropped? Why or why not? Talk about it in the comments below or on Twitter.
