We all remember Michael Jordan breaking out the Air Jordan 14 early in the 1998 NBA Finals, making that black and red “Last Shot” colorway one of the most iconic sneakers in history. But the AJ14 first hit the shelves in late 1998 in the “Black Toe” look, no doubt ideal for Bulls home games had MJ not retired in 1999. No lined and perforated leather paneling here. Instead, the “Black Toe” goes with plain white leather, almost in deference to the forefoot’s black suede fitting. Red and silver give it the classic Bulls feel. Jordan Brand’s first retro of this colorway in 2006 featured the ribbed perforations before returning to the original intent on the 2014 release. Plenty of pairs of each are still available on eBay. If you own the Black Toe 14s, make sure to photo when you wear them and tag with #jordansdaily to show off.
