One Of the Best Basketball Shoes Ever Made

Do you remember the last shot that the greatest basketball player of all time took? Basketball fans certainly do. But even casual sports fans and the public in general can recall Michael Jordan's last shot. The shot that beat the Utah Jazz in game 6 of the 1998 NBA Finals. The same shot that ripped out the hearts of every basketball fan residing in Salt Lake City. Do you remember the shoes Mr. Jordan was wearing that night? Unless you are a true sneakerhead, you probably don't. If you are a sneakerhead, you are counting down the day to the holiday season. In December 2011, the last shoe "His Airness" ever wore in a NBA championship game, the AJ XIV, will be released.

The basketball shoes that Michael Jordan wore during his career as the greatest player to ever play the game are refererred to as Air Jordans. Any basketball player, athlete of any sport, or for that matter, any human being that is aware of their surroundings knows what an Air Jordan sneaker is. Currently, AJ,s are being released as "Retros". Retros are the exact model that Michael wore on the court. 25 years after the Nike released the first Air Jordan model, the shoe is being released and purchased in record numbers. There are more colorways produced today in AJ's than ever before. AJ's just might be more popular today than when Mr. Jordan was actually playing the game.

The Air Jordan Retro XIV is going to be seeing a lot of upcoming released dates. Including the same shoe that Michael Jordan wore that fateful night. The same shot that sneaker afficianodos refer to as the Air Jordan "Last Shot". Appropriately titled the "Last Shot", the Jordan XIV is coming to a retailer near you this December.The same shoe that Michael wore in getting his sixth NBA finals ring. The same shoe that broke the ankles of Byron Russell. The same shoe that would be the last shoe that Jordan wore before he retired.

The AJ XIV when first made, was just a continuation of the innovative design and engineering in the shoe game that Nike has become famous for. The shoe is made of full-grain leather and contains a Zoom Air cushioning unit. As with every Jordan shoe, the inspiration for the design came from Michael himself. In this case, his Ferrari 550 M was used to create shoe's look. The sleek design and high performance of this shoe make it one of the best basketball shoes ever made. Being that it was the AJ that Michael won his sixth and final championship in, makes it one of the most legendary  basketball shoes ever made.

Start saving some green, December is right around the corner. And this is one pair of Jordan shoes for basketball that you must have!
