This Holiday season, the ‘Last Shot’ colorway of the Air Jordan XIV will hit stores once again, marking the third overall release of the shoe. Michael Jordan only wore the ‘Last Shot’ for two games – the second half of Game 5 and all of Game 6 of the 1998 NBA Finals (we don’t need to tell you how that series ended, do we?). The Air Jordan XIV ‘Last Shot’ joins the Air Jordan XI ‘Concord’ and Air Jordan XIII ‘Flint’ among others as Air Jordan OGs that have been re-issued twice, so here we have a nice side-by-side-by-side comparison of all three editions; one quick look and you’ll see that the tumbled leather used on the upper of the Air Jordan XIV is the same used on the upcoming Air Jordan III Black/Cement. We’ve got more for you below so take a good look and let us know if you have plans on copping the Air Jordan XIV ‘Last Shot’. via soleawesome.

I feel likeiwant these, but since the Black Cements are releasing a couple weeks beforehajd ill be alright
Nothing beats the OGs! The retros don't have the automotive black metallic flake finish on the outsoles and no metallic flake ferrari red finish on the bottom sole shank.
Nike is suckin' out all your hard earned monies. You're all falling into an irreversible trap, haven't you all realized that? Drug Pusher: Nike-Oregon HQ's. The Drug: Nike Shoes especially basketball shoes Victims/Addicts: collectors / gawkers / kibitzers / wannabees Ultimate winner: Nike employees and stockholders Buy a pair you NEED!
LOL....i see the quality of boxes went up, while the quality of the shoes went down. Goes to show where the money goes.
by da pix looks like da 05's are better... so no last shots fa me in Dec.. jus save fa da concords & chicago 10s
I dont really care about quality cuz im still goin buy it, it aint like im goin out playin ball in these
well cop these. but to be fair, they look closely the same. i got the 2005 retro of the white and red joints. love em.
All of them look great.....but OGs still win! I'll still be picking up the upcoming version, though.
I expect good quality and craftsmanship in a basketball shoe, regardless if I'm going to "hoop" in them or not. This isn't a Jordan Lifestyle Shoe. Hah-hah
You're not playing ball in arguably one of the best basketball shoes ever? You're just buying them to wear around? I don't consider the 14's that type of shoe.
I'm not sure if you knew, but Nike uses all synthetics these days and has been for a while. If you think you're getting genuine leather you're sadly mistaken. A few years they back they made a promise to cut out the use of animal skins, thus the sh!tty reproductions that we now get. Look at the suede/nubuck for example, It looks like a dirty used black towel.
