AIR JORDAN LOW WEEK PART 2

Continuing this week’s Classics Revisited focus on low-top Jays is one of the originals – the Varsity Royal/Black-White colorway of the Air Jordan XIV Low. The Air Jordan XIV has significance for a variety of reasons; for one, it’s the last Air Jordan model Michael wore as a Chicago Bull, and it was the model the first continued the low-top trend that was re-started with the Air Jordan XIII (that is, if you don’t count the Air Jordan XI IE Low as a true low-top). The sporty colorway matched the design of the XIV, which was inspired by one of Michael’s Ferrari super-cars, but it later adopted the ‘Laney’ nickname thanks to an Air Jordan V Retro of 2000 that donned a similar colorway. Of course, the Blue/Yellow is an instant nod to Michael Jordan’s high school alma mater, making this low-top XIV an unofficial ‘Laney’ colorway.

If this shoe is a "Classic", then classic has lost it's meaning.

stupid nickname imo. when these dropped no one called em laneys. i owned a pair when i was in 9th grade i remember just walking into jimmy jazz and copping no problem. now if they drop down the line with that damn nickname and the hype itll be insane to get a pair smh for the record im aware why the nickname was made cause of the high school colors yeah yeah yeah i still think its stupid not every sneaker needs a nickname. this damn generation fucked it up
