Air Jordan XIV – White – Varsity Red – Black | Release Reminder
Earlier this week, Sneaker News introduced the ‘On The Fence’ segment, allowing our readers to discuss the “cop or pass” scenario of some noteworthy sneakers. While you should have no regrets in picking up tomorrow’s release of the Air Jordan XIV, there’s no doubt that this release hasn’t had as much sneakerhead fervor as the White/Cement IV or even the Chicago X. Will we be surprised and see these fly off the shelves like the Air Jordan X ‘Old Royal’ did? Unfortunately, there’s not much time to think about it because these will indeed hit stores tomorrow, and at midnight on Nikestore. If you’ve made your decision, let us know in the comments section below, and if you’re ready to make a purchase of these Quickstrikes, snag ‘em right now from yellownsxt on eBay.
Air Jordan XIV Retro
No disrespct to MJ and the dsigner of the shoe, but man this are one ugly looking shoe. And some say the wade 2 are ugly. the wade2 is much better than this. And i thnk wade 2 performs better aswell.hahah.anyway haters gonna hate.
Bought them one week before, as in Paris the release was on the 3rd. I have already bought the grey and the black ones, which ones I prefer (color), but this release is quite beautiful and I knew I would buy them when when I saw them some months ago on your site that it would be released. Thanks
AIR JORDAN 14 WHITE/RED GOES DOWN AS ONE OF THE MOST GARBAGE QUALITY RELEASES OF ALL TIME. Today on sneaker related websites and blogs, sneakerheads across the country voiced their continuing disgust with nike over the ever decreasing quality of Jordan retro releases. Noting execution flaws from excessive glue, mistakes on stitching, sloppy paint jobs, and material quality far below even Walmart shoe standards, Jordan fans everywhere expressed a list of complaints about Nikes most recent slap in the face to their loyal customers. The result? ANOTHER SELLOUT as hype-beast and resellers around the country lined up to pay Nike $160 for another garbage quality release, sending the message once again that we as a community will buy anything, and at any price, as long as it bears the jumpman logo. Even though the poor quality of this release was widely known before the launch, it took a mere 6 minutes for nike.com to sellout of all sizes. Adding to the confusion, this general release was labeled a "quickstrike" even though it was available everywhere. This begs the question...At what price, and at what level of quality will our community say "No Thanks" to the corporate greed mongers at Nike? Will it take prices of $200, $300, $400 a pair with for Jordans made out of recycled toilette paper and used chewing gum before we stop buying these products? Will every future release be a sellout until the market is so saturated that people just stop buying all together? Leave your opinion below. Anthony Savoy
An aftermarket exists because a lot of these shoes were originally released when the buyers were kids. Their parents didn't purchase these for them and now that they are adults with money, they can afford to buy them. Resellers are more than happy to camp out and sell these buyers the shoes. Only people that are screwed are new collectors.
am i the only one that noticed the ugly change they made to the outer arch plate? the ridged made the shoe look dope smfh. i want a pair of og mainly for the box tho lol
How in the fuck can Nike put steel tips on the drawstring of a $40 hoody but can't put them on a $160 pair of J's?
i got mine at footlocker this morning only two locations got these pairs in whole city of san diego ca was a line at both stores however i was able to get my size 12
Unreal that these sellout instantly. They are garbage. They're are so many tards out there that just buy shit now not even knowing what the fuh it is, thinking they are going to be rich off reselling. The Concord release has changed everything.
Ordered mine from Champs. Had to wait 25mins to even get to the check out screen. I didn't expect them to sell out so fast. I shouldn't have slept on them "Last Shots" since they just sat instores.
So got mine it felt like back in the days before wale hypbeast reseller got all over J's anyway they still sold out these and the last shots is all I will ever mess with for the XIV's
these sold out QUICK!!!!! i wish i could get some pairs, but Im currently on a leash by my grandmother that is very stinky and covered in sh**
Wow, these are about all gone after just 10 minutes. I easily copped off Nike.com. The website didn't jam, though. I guess when every one and their mama doesn't want a shoe, it's easier for the true lovers. In the time it took me to write this they are all the way sold out. Don't sleep.
I got mine on hold for the morning. What is up with the commentary lol some of you guys need a break from this website.
These look so cheap compared to the 06, but damn I need a .5 size bigger WTF to do. I'ma just wait for now if they sell out fuck it.
Watch, these are go gonna go under the radar and we will all be kicking ourselves for not getting them
I went to finishline and asked to see these and dude showed me 2 pairs and that quality was NASTY!! I mean I know we dont get good quality as it is but these were horrible. They had that yellow repair glue on the toe box, the leather was cut like they took a box cutter to it and the red paint looked like it was sprayed on and it was all over the white midsole. DAMN JB YOU SHOULD'VE WAITED TO DROP THESE LIKE PLANNED AND BROUGHT THE QUALITY UP TO THE SHITTY QUALITY WE GET NOW AT LEAST SMH
Got mine delivered last night, quality is garbage, one shoe has the ridges in the leather the other is completely flat loose stitching everywhere, leather is like some type of genetically engineered mutant leather from plastic cows. Very disappointed. Should have known not to trust jb on a shie with this much stitching work on it.
i remember this guy bought a pair a while back and i stole them from his locker, when he had a basketball game. I transfered the next day with a fresh pair!
i agree 100%. my og xiv have silver metal aglets and real carbon fiber in the shank plate. this retro was very poor quality.
It goes back further... ever since da space jams, resellers have been goin nuts. It was jus da tippin point after da concords... now every jordan, lebron, foamposite, certain kd's & kobes will b toooough to get. But u can blame resellers, u gotta blames niiigggas spendin dat much jus.so they can have them... they need to sell those prices to celebs & athletes since they get them early anyway. Have them soend 400 on sum slighty USED concords & shiiiiiit
now u kno dam well dats not gonna happen.... eastbay, footlocker crashed fa an hr. No release will b slept on dis yr.... NO RELEASE
I completely agree with you. My pair have the same exact flaws. And the red paint job completely sucks man.
