August 2nd is among the latest 23isback release dates because that is when a new Wolf Grey and Sport Blue color of the Air Jordan 14 (14) is being brought back by Jordan Brand. The colorway is a part of the small Retro Jordan collection that is also expected to be released during the Fall season. This combination of grey and blue is quite like the “Light Graphite” colorway that was released back in 2011, which featured darker shades of these two main colors. However, what sets this upcoming Air Jordan 14 is that the upper is made of tumbled leather.
It was the year 1998 that marked the original release of the Air Jordan 14. The kicks featured a designed influenced by Ferrari luxury sports car and served the purpose of commemorating Michael Jordan’s fondness of motorsports. The Air Jordan 14 had been a late-era Tinker Hatfield model and its dearest colorway was the “Long Shot.” Michael Jordan made the black and red pair famous during that unforgettable moment when he won the Championship in the 1998 NBA Finals after scoring the winning field goal. It was also the last time Michael Jordan played as a part of the Chicago Bulls.
An Air Jordan 14 Retro sporting such a colorway has never been seen before. This Air Jordan features a nubuck and ribbed leather upper in wolf grey, while the laces, midsole “teeth” and tongue have dark grey accents over them. These kicks also feature soft blue accents, which can be spotted on the heel accents, Jumpman logos throughout and tongue branding on the Air Jordan 14.
It is notable, the “Sport Blue” shade was brought back this summer when the Air Jordan 6 was released, and it is being speculated that the upcoming Air Jordan 14s are among one of the few models that are following that trend. Of course, along with Sport Blue, the Air Jordan 14 has an upper featuring Wolf Grey and White as well. Another original, new colorway of the returning Air Jordan XIV that is expected to make a debut is the “Black Toe,” while the “Thunder” colorway is also set to be released.
It is also a fact that Jordan 14 models have been blued up quite frequently in the past, and this particular shade actually makes these kick look somewhat like a tribute to the UNC. Nonetheless, Jordan 14 Retro “Wolf Grey and White-Sport Blue” colorway is quite stylish and well-rounded, and as per the 23isback release dates, they will be up for grabs on August 2nd.
