Sneakerheads know that new Jordans drop at 10 a.m. on Saturdays, and being a few minutes late could be the determining factor in securing a pair or not. With online releases being plagued by "wait your turn to checkout" prompts, the days of leisurely copping the latest Jordans on a Saturday afternoon were thought to be a thing of the past. Sneakers being available hours later is a rare occurrence, but it happened today with the Air Jordan XIV "Laney."
Making its first return to retailers since its original release in 1999, the Air Jordan XIV "Laney" is a surely desired by fans, as is any sneaker that has yet to be re-released. The sneaker draws inspiration from Michael Jordan's high school colors and is featured on a low top, a XIV silhouette that hasn't been seen in almost 10 years.
What exactly is causing these to sit on shelves isn't apparent, but true fans definitely won't be complaining. Head over to Nike Store to pick up a pair now for $170.
