In the past, every time a certain year neared its conclusion, Jordanheads would begin speculating what new installments they will be adding to their retro catalog, which keeps growing with each passing year. Not only did the Jumpman kick off this year with some fresh Jordan releases 2016, they also unveiled a number of sneakers that would feature the classic Nike Air logo. They even revealed that the Air Jordan 1 “Bred” and “Royal” would also be making a return this year. Above all, Jordan Brand had even brought sneakerheads news regarding the comeback of the Air Jordan 14 “Indiglo” and “Oxidized” iterations too.
Jordanheads who are well versed in terms of Air Jordan releases will agree that the “Indiglo” and “Oxidized” as one of the greatest colorways of the Air Jordan 14. They were among the nine original color options that the Jumpman had dropped when the Air Jordan 14 was first introduced and they set a new standard. They made Jordan Brand realize that they did not really have to draw inspiration from the Chicago Bulls for every other sneaker. It is startling that neither of these Air Jordan 14 renditions have received the retro treatment yet.
The leathers of the Air Jordan 14 “Indiglo” are dressed up ominous black, while its sole units are covered in a combination of the same black hue with the addition of some clean white here and there. The uppers also feature metallic silver and vivid green accents, especially in the case of the Jordan branding. The Air Jordan 14 “Oxidized,” which is also known as the “Oxi Green” is the opposite since it sports clean white uppers. The inner linings and a majority of the soles are covered in black, while the oxidized green makes an appearance on both the branding and soles, and some legend blue can also be spooted.
As per Jordan Brand’s schedule, the Air Jordan 14 “Indiglo” will make its retail debut at a price of $190 on August 13th. Similarly, the Air Jordan 14 “Oxidized” is scheduled to hit the shelves on July 16th and its retail price will also be $190.
