Jordan heads here who have been keeping an eye on Air Jordan releases since the 2000s will probably remember that a remarkable run had been enjoyed by Jordan “.5” series. However, merely a couple of “.5” series had been released since Jordan Brand switched over to other endeavors. 23isBack readers will be surprised that these somewhat hybrid Air Jordans are making a comeback with a twist, and one of the Jordan release dates 2014 can be reserved for this pair.
Jordan Brand had provided a first look at the Flight Time 14.5 back in June. Savvy sneaker enthusiasts will definitely notice that this silhouette has been heavily inspired from Jordan 14, considering how cushioning, lightweight breathability and lockdown, have been fused together in these kicks. Of course, several alterations have already been thrown into this basketball sneaker.
For lightweight durability and support, the Flight Time 14.5 features an authentic and synthetic leather upper. Lockdown is offered through the midfoot by the Flight web fit system. The upper also has perforations for enhanced ventilations so the wearer’s feet will remain cool. For a comfortable fit, the wearer’s feet will be surrounded by articulated padding. A snug fit and ventilation will also be ensued by the mesh bootie inside these sneakers.
For lightweight cushioning and stability, the Flight Time 14.5 has an Injected Phylon midsole. The heel contains Lunarlon foam for responsive and soft cushioning on impact. The forefoot features a Nike Zoom unit for low-profile responsiveness and quick steps. The forefoot will also be wrapped up by the lateral support wing for extra stability. On the forefoot, a herringbone pattern covers the rubber outsole for multidirectional traction.
The Jordan Flight Time 14.5 model will be making its retail debut in a predominant “Black” and “White” colorway with Infrared accents. A perforated upper like that of this “14.5” model has probably not been seen before, so 23isBack readers are sure to be impressed. Although an official release date has not been announced by Jordan Brand, sneaker aficionados can look forward to one of the upcoming August Jordan release dates 2014.
