When the Air Jordan XIV returned to stores in 2005, Jordan Brand flirted with the expansion of the ‘no-sew’ or ‘seamless’ approach to some colorways, similar to the original ‘Indiglo’ colorway that utilized a stitchless smooth-leather upper. We did see some releases of that nature like the Light Graphite/Chartreuse Retro in suede, but how sick would this sample would have been had it hit stores? Borrowing the ‘Chutney’ color profile from the original Air Jordan XIII Low, this Air Jordan XIV looks more ‘work-boot’ than ‘Ferrari’ as it features a tonal Chutney suede upper with a matching interior and a Black outsole. We’ve never seen this much of a Lifestyle vibe on an XIV before – could more be on the way? Check out the detailed gallery below and see what the asking price for this rare sample is by visiting the auction from iluvrec614 on eBay.
looks like something that would have made the bin lineup....... i wonder what happened to that series?
NICE! I hope JB doesn't retro the chutney 13s though, only because I still have mine and I pull them out every summer.
I like how JB rarely uses "chutney" so when u see it again its refreshing. Kinda like how they USED to treat "cool grey"...
