Out of the latest Jordan release dates 2014, July 9 is next in line since these new debut colors of Jordan 1 ’99 are hitting the shelves next week. Considering the fact that they are showing up on Wednesday, it is obvious that the normal release procedures are being defied by these new jordans. However, then again, Air Jordan 1 has a history of being more vulnerable than most Jordan sneakers to disregard the tradition of being released on Saturday. The “Cool Grey/Vibrant Yellow-Black” colorway is somewhat of a reminder of Jordan 14 Retro that was released just yesterday, while the “White/Black-Gym Red” colorway is foreshadowing the Jordan 14 Retro of the same nature.
The “Cool Grey” colorway of Jordan I ’99 is a representation of two important sneakers worn by Michael Jordan. Those two sneakers are Jordan I that was worn by MJ when he entered the league and Jordan 14 that he wore for the last time on the court before exiting the league. Of course, rather than old colorways, new colorways have dominated Jordan 14 in the 2014 retros that have been previewed here at 23isBack so far. Thus, it is not unusual that the Air Jordan 1 ’99 is debuting with such an unfamiliar palette.
Moving on to the “Black Toe” colorway of Air Jordan 1 Retro ’99, it is actually not entirely the same as the “Black Toe” colorway of Air Jordan 14 that still does not have a confirmed release date. Unlike the Jordan 14 “Black Toe”, the sides of this pair have not received the clean white-walled treatment; instead this sneaker has the perforated sections that the typical Jordan 14s are known for. It may not be a heritage sneaker, but this pair certainly borrows from Jordan XIV to quite an extent.
Occasionally, Air Jordan pairs become available earlier, even before the confirmed 23isback release dates arrive, and Jordan I ’99 is one of them. For all those impatient Jordanheads out there, they can shop for this pair on eBay before they are even released. As for those who would rather wait, July 9 is one of the Jordan release dates 2014 they can look forward to.
