That you should take great care in doing so or perhaps avoid mixing black and navy blue together has been a rule of thumb in the fashion world for as long as anyone can remember. But like all rules, it’s easy to get caught up in the letter of the law and forget the reason why it was established to start. In the case of these two dark shades, it’s because in most indoor lighting, the colors can be so close as to suggest you tried to match them, but far enough apart that it’s clear you failed. No such face-flop for Jordan Brand, though, as this new Air Jordan XIV proves that you can very successfully mix these two dark hues, and perhaps like the success of last holiday’s AJXI Retro release, it was the grey that made all the difference in this pair. Click through to see more of how this neutral nubuck base serves to balance out a supremely bold colorway and check out the limited run available from Marquee Sole and/or an early pair currently available on eBay.
