Instead of doing Protro Air Jordan models we are getting the Jordan Jumpman Z, a shrouded and zippered Air Jordan 14.
The Air Jordan 14 we all know and love has been given a new suede upper with perforations at the toebox and cross-hatch detailing at the heel. The mesh shroud wraps over the midfoot and is zippered on the lateral side while a traditional tongue resides beneath it. With silhouettes like the Jumpman Hustle and Jumpman Z it appears 2018 is the year of the zipper for Jordan Brand.
According to Shoe Palace, the Jordan Jumpman Z features encapsulated Air-Sole units that should keep wearers comfortable “even after hours out in the paint.” However, the original Air Jordan 14 featured heel Zoom Air and forefoot articulated Zoom Air. Underfoot is the same full-length herringbone traction used on the AJXIV. The shoe is designated a basketball sneaker and priced like one.
The Jordan Jumpman Z is available now at ShoePalace.com for $160 in an ‘Olive/Green/Black’ colorway. Sizes 8 to 13 are stocked.
