As you’re surely aware, not every Retro is given its due justice. As Jordan Brand prepares to re-launch the original “Oxidized Green” Air Jordan XIV tomorrow, we’ve gotta say, they absolutely nailed it.
From the varying hues of blue and green throughout atop the simple white and black colorway, to the glossed midsole wedges and everything in between, the 2016 remake of the Tinker Hatfield classic from nearly two decades ago still stands the test of time.
In preparation of tomorrow’s launch, check out an original pair of the “Oxidized Green” Air Jordan XIV in detail below, in our latest edition of Top Shelf, and let us know how you think the Retro compares.
