Jordan Brand’s Retro Spring/Summer lineup of Air Jordan releases 2019 will include two different, brand new colorways of the Air Jordan 14. In recent times, Jordan Brand has not released as many Air Jordan 14 colorways as it used to in the past. Most recently, it arrived at retailers last year on June 14th, 2018 when it retailed at a price of $190 in the “Last Shot” colorway. Its nickname was a reference to that historic final shot that Michael Jordan scored during the 1998 NBA Finals against the Utah Jazz, which secured the sixth NBA championship victory for the Chicago Bulls.
The Air Jordan 14 colorway you see above has apparently been officially nicknamed “Varsity Red” but is also being referred to as “Candy Cane.” This is actually a returning iteration since it originally made its retail debut back in 1999, although Michael Jordan never really laced up in it for an NBA game. Instead, it was Rip Hamilton who rocked a pair of this colorway during the 1999 NCAA Championship game between the Connecticut Huskies and the Duke Blue Devils. As you can see, it was plain White uppers with Black-colored accents, while its “Candy Cane” monicker is a reference to the Varsity Red-colored detailing.
While the “Candy Cane” colorway will soon be among this month’s upcomning Air Jordan releases 2019, another one will also hit the shelves in the coming months. As you may know, the Air Jordan 14’s design was inspired by Michael Jordan’s Ferrari 550M, and Red and Yellow happen to two of Ferrari’s signature colors. Of course, Jordan Brand released a Red-colored Air Jordan 14 Retro “Ferrari” colorway in September 14. The Air Jordan 14 “Reverse Ferrari” seen above can be regarded as its successor. The Black and University Gold color scheme of this iteration draws inspiration from the exterior and leather upholstery of the Giallo Modena Ferrari 458 Italia.
