With our line of sight focused squarely on the men’s releases, like yesterday’s discussion of the Air Jordan XIV White/Varsity Red, the sick GS releases tend to go under the radar and become noticed only when they pop on store shelves. That’s sorta how the sneaker ‘game’ was in the 90’s, when all you had to depend on was going to actual stores, checking up on Eastbay catalogs of KICKS magazine, and keeping your ear to the ground. This new under-the-radar Air Jordan XIV not only catches us by surprise, but reminds us that the Air Jordan XIV is not to be slept on; this particular release is a semi-throwback to the White/University Blue PE and the low-top that dropped in 2005, but comes painted in a slightly more festive Neptune Blue and a punchy Siren Red (a common theme for GS Jordans in the coming months). CitySole just dropped these so head there to cop after you check out the gallery below.

White/Siren Red-Neptune Blue
We (men) get a new pair of J's almost every week in different colors and styles, and some of you are really on here crying about these not coming in a mens size? Get a grip! Let the kids/ladies rock for a change. A real "sneakerhead" respects the diversity. A "hypebest" (for lack of a better term) wants everything they see because they "think" its "hot" or its what might be the "new wave". Get a mind of your own! Btw, these are a tough cw and I cant wait to see the kids/ladies kill these.
uhhh ok first of all no one is saying give the mens these instead of GS. We like to see this in a men size as well because it looks nice so the ladies/kids and men can rock too, and what does having a new colorway and style every week have to do with this shoe? Last time I checked GS sizes a lot get more new exclusive colorways then men sizes on top of the general releases we get as well. So you can miss us with that Bull**** your spewing out your mouth.
jb should have released this colorway in mens..scrap the candy cane and remove the red and the change the toe box and you got a hot release..candy cane dropped in 2006 and can still be had at decent prices! man nice cw for the ladies!
thats not patent leather the they just super glossed that faux print which they need to stop doing all together.
Dear JB, Can I special order a pair of these in a men size 10.5? You can leave the snake skin pattern on the toe, but please kill the patent leather on my pair. Thanks, The guy who wishes this was an adult colorway
man o man I prefer these over the white and red joints. Dang jb what about men sizes *no one ever pays me in gum face*
