Style of the Jordan 14 Retro Forest Green

The Jordan 14s possess an outsized presence in the history of sneaker and basketball culture. When Michael Jordan sank a 20-foot jump shot with 5 seconds left on the clock in Game 6 of the 1998 NBA Finals, he clinched the sixth series win in eight years for the Chicago Bulls. It was the last shot of that momentous game, the last shot of the series, and the last shot of his career with the Bulls. It was in every sense the last shot of an era, and Mike made it wearing the Air Jordan 14s in Black/Black-Varsity Red, a colorway that would forever after be known as “Last Shot.”

So important was this moment in the history of both the Jordan line and the history of basketball that Nike has re-released the “Last Shot” colorway more than once – in 2005, 2011, and then again in 2018 to commemorate the 20th anniversary of that incredible basket.

Beyond the history-making moment of MJ’s final career basket, the 14s quickly achieved a wild popularity. Just two months after the 14s’ release, Footaction ranked it in position 82 on their list of the 100 best athletic shoes ever produced.

History of Air Jordan 14

Originally released in 1997 and produced in its original generation through 1999 (and then re-issued as a “Retro” in 2005, 2006, 2008, 2011, 2012 and 2014–2018), the Air Jordan 14 was the last model worn on the court by Jordan himself. Like nearly all of the Air Jordans produced during Michael Jordan’s playing career (except models I and II), the 14s were designed by legendary sneaker designer Tinker Hatfield—this time with the help of designer Mark Smith.

Jordan 14 Retro Forest 2005

The Jordan 14 Retro Forest is made of premium leather with EVA foam on the sides for additional lateral support. It was released on October 22, 2005. The upper is white with forest green detailing at the heel, branding, and mudguard. It features lines of breathable side vent panels. There are loops on the middle of the tongue to assist in a secure lockdown. These sneakers also have a carbon fiber midfoot shank, full-length Phylon midsoles, and Air units in the forefoot and heel. The outsoles are made with a herringbone traction pattern that has thick grooves.
