The Air Jordan 14 “Thunder” will release tomorrow, July 4th. Their arrival on a holiday might mean an easier purchase for some of you, as you won’t have to worry about work getting in the way of important sneaker purchasing. Then again, the Air Jordan 14 hasn’t really been tested in 2014 – maybe the model won’t be too hard to pick up in general thanks to a lack of appreciation. Give us your predictions after you check the photos waiting below and remember that you can always find a pair on eBay.

tues night not size sold out on footlocker/footaction.....black and white foams took a good 3 days for sizes to start selling out....nike amping up supply never scene ANY retro every size in stock 5 days after release and this is a nice sneaker pass for me but there are deff mre then enough hyperbeast plus people that really like the shoe that this should be sold out buy now.....any one hear anything or a pipe dream????
I figured out why they was so easy everybody thought they was go drop on Saturday I bet they gone now
Easiest cop for me this year. Walked into a store and walked out with them, old school style. No raffles, no lines, no cops. Thanks for sleeping on these very nice, clean Js kids!
This was the easiest cop i have gotten all year so far. If only they release kicks on fridays. Smh but saw these in person, they kinda tight. Aint no 4s but a nice smooth look. These will def be underrated.
@jmb82sh dont think it has anything to do with nike amping up supply...thats a joke to them....ppl just dont appreciate these 14's... alotta ppl were hating on these from day 1 or would pass because they have the 4 version
@joketokesmoke nah... most of nike's sizes are gone, but footlocker is FULLY STOCKED, not one size has been sold out yet
@JMBasquiat the 4's yellow isn;t the same yellow as this and also the 4's have too much of that yellow on them and not enough black.....
@dracyn did people sleep or more supply....5 days later every size still in stock never scene this in years with any retro and there have been worse then this??lmk what you think
@dracyn They're still available online which is crazy...
@Socks for You Yep, they didn't even do raffles around my way, and I didn't even try online cause I pretty much knew I could walk into a store and grab them, which I did.
I def feel you....less than 5 yrs tho. Wait til evryone gets a pair either on the low or on this release and watch how crazy evryone will get. Guaranteed
@jmb82sh I think people, younger ones in particular, just don't like 14s. They only really recognize the "last shots" cause those are the only ones MJ actually wore. There's a lot of folks who don't rock any Js past 13. I personally don't go past 14s. Plus yellow isn't a very popular color, and I keep hearing and seeing complaints about the quality, which is funny, cause those Black/infrared 6s are being made the same way... I think these 14s are pretty solid. The durabuck is nice and clean and the paint looks good, like it does on every 14. People think it's sloppy, but that's the best paint can look on polyurethane. I don't think supply has anything to do with it. There were probably as many of these as those white/infrared 6s or infrared 10s. Those sat for a few days around my way.
@Foots230 I have a pair of ds thunder 4s and feeling sport blue 14 cw a lot better ,but 5 almost 6 days later evreysize still in stock on line....maybe nike scene ebay is doing 100 of millions in Jordan aftermarket sales so they are amping up supply
Because people are so closed minded and stuck on hype thats why they get the same ol and never branch off. Why do you think real sneakerheads appreciate new concepts.
@Foots230 very true....hey im not even mad tho, im glad these got to be an easy grab. fuck those who slept lol
