The last Air Jordan used by Michael Jordan while still a member of the Chicago team was the Air Jordan 14. To commemorate this very special occasion, Nike has announced the launch of a new color scheme on its 2020 edition of the Air Jordan 14. at Gym Red color. Here are 10 things you didn’t know about this new shoe to catch up on the latest news.
1. This is a sophisticated silhouette
The Gym Red edition of the new Air Jordan 14 features a lot of red. Most of the upper part is bright red. It is well balanced with accents of black, gray, and white. The first thing that stands out is the elegant profile. The top is beautifully contoured around the bottom of the arch with overlays that add extra stability near the top.
2. The midsole draws attention
When it comes to contrast, this may be the most remarkable Air Jordan colourway ever produced. A black toe box against the red upper is a nice touch. The most aesthetically moving component is the midsole that is applied in a bright white that creeps up the shoe and adds a texture that almost looks like side rails against the sides of the shoe.
3. It is well ventilated
This is a high top sneaker that was designed for use on the basketball court. It is designed to promote the best possible airflow in a tall leather upper. We were impressed with the air vents that are added to the tongue of the shoe. Since the design doesn’t allow the feature to be placed near the toe area of the upper, they improvised well by placing them in an area that will ensure airflow over the top of the foot and down through the rest of the shoe.
4. The construction is solid
We took a closer look at the construction of the Air Jordan 14 Gym Red. The seams are solid and we were especially impressed with the way the lacing system was incorporated into the upper. There are plenty of tight-fitting gussets to ensure that the shoe’s leather and nylon components are securely attached. This extends to all logical stress points to ensure long wear in a high quality basketball shoe.
5. It’s built for comfort
This shoe is designed perfectly when it comes to the cushioning and padding that is applied. Nike has made a habit of ensuring that all pressure points on the feet are covered with a thin layer of effective cushioning. It is not overdone to cause heat and tightness, but just enough to prevent friction and chafing.
6. The support is amazing
We love the way the Air Jordan 14 Gym Red is designed to provide full foot support. On the inside, gussets that provide firmness where it’s needed actually give you more control over your feet when you’re on the court. This design has been flexibly tempered so you can achieve a more natural movement on the court so your feet don’t feel restricted. Nike has struck a perfect balance when it comes to supporting the arches, heels and ankles for optimal control and performance.
7. Traction is remarkable
The Air Jordan 14 Gym Red has a built-in traction system that provides superior grip on the court. The signature circle that is built into the rubber outsole makes it possible to pivot and achieve some incredible rotational movements with the utmost ease. When you need grip, they keep your feet solid on the court and you’re not likely to have an inadvertent slip problem. This type of traction is highly valued by serious basketball players because it improves their ability to perform precision movements in high-stakes games. It’s an overall amazing trail shoe that is unrivaled in performance.
8. Nike is already sold out
The Air Jordan 14 Gym Red was included in the manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $ 190 per pair. When we checked the official Nike site, we saw that they were already out of stock. This is perhaps an indication of how popular this sneaker in the Gym Red color will be for the summer. The sneaker was officially launched in the United States on July 2, 2020, and in less than two weeks, it has become difficult to find. Of course, this is an iconic model within the Air Jordan line, so it doesn’t come as much of a surprise. Nike has yet to know when or if more of this sneaker will be available through its website.
9. It was released in Europe before the US market.
The Air Jordan 14 Gym Red was launched for sale in the European market on June 23, 2020. This was about ten days before the debut of the US suppliers, so …
