UPDATE: New Color Revealed for Jordan Brand x Supreme Air Jordan 14

Quick Take:

Supreme will collaborate with Jordan Brand for the first time since 2015, bringing sneakerheads an Air Jordan 14 model dressed up in classic Supreme flair. While information is limited, currently, this pair of AJ14s should release later this year alongside other not-yet-seen colorway(s).

UPDATE: Images of the 2nd Supreme x Air Jordan 14 colorway emerged over the weekend. The shoe features similar colorblocking to the white/red pair, replacing the colors with a black/blue base. New images have been included in this article.

Design:

The Air Jordan 14 already has a unique Ferrari-inspired design, which Supreme elevates in their own post-punk fashion. The upper has been adorned with silver studs, reflective of Supreme’s punk influences. However, the acclaimed skateboard shop chooses to keep the rest of the shoe true to form, an ode to its perfect fit into the urban sprawl the original Supreme shop still resides. White serves as the base color of the shoe, with pops of red on the tongue and heel. Supreme branding lines the top of the tongue, and also appears on the modified hangtag.

Analysis:

When Supreme collaborates with brands like Nike and Jordan on footwear releases, they often choose lesser utilized models. This rings true again, as the AJ14 is a part of the iconic original Jordan series- but does not have a ton of re-releases in its history. While not overly aggressive, the added embellishment of silver studs on the upper give a subtle punk-rock feel, which fits Supreme’s urban meets punk vibe.

Release Date:

At this time we do not have specific release info. Expect these out later in 2019.
