Ever wonder what’s inside an original pair of Air Jordan 14’s? Well… feast your eyes on what they used to feature. The Retro models from 2006 – present day still feature heel and forefoot Zoom Air, but the forefoot is not this articulated version. I believe this style of articulated Zoom was also used in The Glove and the Pippen 2. Nowadays we get a standard shaped forefoot unit and they’re quite a bit thinner than these used to be… I’d guess that they are at least 1/2 the thickness of the originals.
