An overwhelming majority of Air Jordan Retro releases focus on Michael Jordan’s career with the Chicago Bulls, the Fifteen as of this date the only one that debuted after his second retirement to return outside of the 2008 Collezione Packages. The Air Jordan XIV Retro pictured above only sneaks into the majority by a technicality, itself never appearing in an NBA game after Mike hung up his ‘Last Shots’ in 1998.
