Certain colorways just work. They transcend beyond their original purpose and the confines of a certain signature or model. The “Thunder” colorway has done just that. Starting with the Air Jordan 4 “Thunder” sneakerheads took notice to the colorway and it has become revered as a classic. Then it found its way to the Air Jordan 1 “New Love” within the BMP. They would also reach an elevated status. Now Jordans has taken the black and yellow colorway and put it on the Air Jordan 14 to create a fresh new pair of kicks to the lineage.
The Air Jordan 14 Retro Thunder is one sneaker that many of us are definitely planning to cop later this year. It’s not just the silhouette of the sneaker that shines, but the colorway is very attractive, in the contrast of both light and dark hues. I’m actually a big fan of the darker colorway, in this case black, being more of the dominant, while yellow plays the more predominant role. This in my opinion allows the accents to have a bigger impact on the sneaker, since the brightness really overshadows the darker base. Yellow accents are mostly found on the midsole, logo, and heel as well as some grey and white accents that can be located throughout. If you plan on copping a pair then mark your calenders for July 4th, 2014.
The Ferrari inspired AJ14 feature black suede as the basis for the new look. Yellow colors areas of the midsole, logo, and feel. The dopeness lies in the simplicity of the kicks. And if you know anything about Jordan and black suede its rare that it’s a bad combination. The Air Jordan 14 Retro Thunder are set to drop on the 4th of July for $170.
