While we’re still a few months out from the conclusion of 2022, mock-ups of Jordan Brand’s roster for next Summer have been revealed by KKS. Continuing along the low-to-mid theme set by the Air Jordan 14 “Light Ginger”, a mid-cut version of the 2015 “Laney” Jordan 14 is set to make its return.
Inspired by the iconic start to his basketball journey – being cut from the Varsity team at Laney High School – Jordan’s 14th silhouette bears dominant “Varsity Blue” nubuck that takes on a majority of the model’s real estate while blacks are accented along the vamp, collar and tongue construction. A seldom touch of white is employed throughout the midsole to soften the aesthetic as the titular hues of “Varsity Maze” embolden the upper tongue and the mini Jumpman logo placed at the base of the lacing structure.
The upcoming mid-cut of the Jordan 14 “Laney” mock-up is scheduled for a May 27th release in 2023 alongside a $210 retail tag.
For more unreleased Jordan offerings, the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG is anticipating “Washed Black” suede overlays.
