Air Jordan 14 “Winterized”
Colorway: Archaeo Brown / Multi-Color / Multi-Color
Style #: DO9406-200
Release Date: October 16, 2021
The Air Jordan 14 “Winterized” marked a return to luxurious leather used for the Jordan line, and this modern iteration that’s tuned for street use recalls the need for premium materials. Swapping full-grain for suede, this version is able to up its elemental resistance by applying a coating that stops water and grime seeping in. Plus, its upper is crafted from a single piece of material with no seams, meaning it’s considerably less prone to water ingress. Also, thickly padded uppers and lining are sure to result in some comfortably toasty toes.
Of course, a winter appropriate sneaker is only as good as its ability to traverse wet and slippery terrain. Given the AJ14 is a basketball shoe with plenty of proven grip, traction should not be a concern. And, the hiking boot-inspired brown and red colourway which evokes a sense of adventurous reassurance is just the cherry on top.
