It’s only right that Jordan Brand celebrates the 20th anniversary of the “Last Shot” by releasing the shoe that MJ was wearing in that iconic moment. Made famous by the shot MJ hit in game 6 of the 1998 NBA Finals against the Utah Jazz that propelled his Bulls to another championship victory. Serving as one of the first sneakers in history to have an official nickname devoid of any color affiliation, the Air Jordan 14 “Last Shot” helps tell the story of one of the most significant moments in NBA history. Securing MJ his sixth NBA championship with the Bulls, this iconic moment was both the final Bull’s Field Goal attempt of the game, and Jordan’s last in his Chicago career. Chasing one with 10 seconds on the clock, Jordan shook off Bryon Russell – following a steal of Karl Malone on the defensive end – and put up a 20-foot jumper from the top of key. Hitting nothing but net and giving the Bulls the lead with 5.2 seconds to go, this moment will live forever in NBA lure.
That iconic moment cemented the Air Jordan 14’s status as an all-time classic. Twenty years after MJ’s championship-sealing bucket was scored, the Air Jordan 14 Last Shot is making a triumphant return to its original form. Sporting an aggressive black leather stitched upper, the Air Jordan 14 was inspired by MJ’s love of high speed cars and was designed off the influence of theFerrari F355F1. The influence can be seen on the Jumpman shield that graces the outer panels. Red contrasting side vents served as nods to the Italian carmakers’ fluid mixture of luxury and high performance, two characteristics that became synonymous with the Jordan Brand and MJ’s level of play. The classic luxury car-inspired silhouette features a rich tumbled Black leather upper with Black suede accents. Contrast is provided by Red branding on the heel and the Yellow shield logo on the lateral side of the sneaker. A Red carbon fiber outsole plate completes the shoe’s classic and fast look

When it comes to Jordan Brand and their prestigious history of colorways and story telling, the ‘Last Shot’ theme is up there in the ranks. Made famous by the shot MJ hit in game 6 of the 1998 NBA Finals against the Utah Jazz that propelled his Bulls to another championship victory. The Black and Red colorway that was featured on the Jordan XIV that Jordan was wearing when he nailed that jump shot is now taking over the Air Jordan XXXII Low. To further that homage, the Jumpman is taking the signature midfoot decal of the 14 and putting it on the tongue of the Air Jordan XXXII Low in yellow. Keeping that honorary trend going, is a date on the inside of that tongue that pays tribute to that date the Bulls won their sixth ring. This Air Jordan 32 features the Ferrari-style Jumpman branding on the tongue, textured leather on the heels featuring the wings logo, and red Jumpman branding on the midsole to top it all off.

Summer hasn’t even started yet, but Jordan Brand has been bringing the ????????????. We’ve seen the women’s Satin ‘Shattered Backboard’ AJ1, the ‘Shadow’ AJ1, the ‘Hall of Fame’ AJ3, and of course this upcoming weekend’s ‘Cap and Gown’ AJ11.
This June, Jordan Brand is set to bring back one of the most highly coveted retro of its time and it’s inspired by the former Nuggets 2003 #3 pick, Carmelo Anthony. You know Melo The God has been reppin’ JB since his days at ‘Cuse – scratch that – Oak Hill Academy High School and the brand blessed him with multiple Player Editions (back when it was very rare) during his rookie season, including the now iconic white and blue 2s. As a nod to the time that Melo spent in Denver, we are dropping this shoe early as a part of our Denver Flagship Store Grand Opening on Saturday 5/26.
Originally released back in ‘04, the Melo-inspired AJ2 returns with its smooth White, Varsity Maize, and University Blue color scheme. It has a lot of the same features as the OG so fans can definitely bask in the nostalgia and re-up in case your old pair has seen better days.
If you can’t make it to the Denver Flagship Store Grand Opening, make sure to mark your calendars for 6/9 to cop the AJ Retro 2 ‘Melo’ at FinishLine.com.
The Air Jordan 11 holds a special place in the sneaker realm for what Jordan did wearing the shoe and the one of a kind look that they had when he debuted them on May 7th, 1995 in a game against the Orlando Magic. As the years have come and gone, the love and demand for the Retro 11 has become bigger than anything Tinker Hatfield or Michael Jordan could have imagined. Now, Jordan Brand is honoring those who accomplish graduating high-school with this premium take on the ’96 classic hoops model that is perfect for formal events that fall near the end of the school year in mind. JB is also giving graduates first dibs through a special SNKRs release that has never been done before.
What started as a sample in the ‘Blackout’ Collection back in 2011 has finally come full circle to be released after sneakerheads have been begging for years. Since 2011, this pair has accumulated numerous nicknames like ‘Blackout’, ‘Prom Night’ and others but Jordan Brand has dubbed these ‘Cap and Gown’ 11s. The all-black pair sports suede panels in place of the usual ballistic mesh, tonal branding hits, a metal Jumpman on the lateral heel in place of the usual stitched interpretation, a smokey outsole, and the model’s signature high-cut patent leather. To add to this pair’s theme, the black laces are made to resemble the cords worn by students on graduation day. Thanks to its shiny patent leather detailing resembling a dress shoe, the 11 has been re-purposed over the years by some as an “acceptable” compliment to formal wear.
With college graduation season already underway, don’t be surprised to see certain students rocking these with their traditional attire when they receive their diplomas this year. This pair will be releasing in MEN’S SIZES ONLY.

The birth of the Air Jordan 1 back in 1985 was a pivotal moment for the Swoosh. There’s no doubt that the Air Jordan 1 has transcended its court purpose. In the past few decades, the AJ1 has inspired a plethora of different versions, but even though styles and trends shift, this has always been a sneakerhead staple.
Back in January, Nike debuted The 1 Reimagined collection focused on the AJ1 and AF1. Out of 1,000 designers, there were 14 women chosen to spearhead this project and they were only given two weeks. These 14 women behind the project had a very particular skill set to not only complete the project, but to also blow it out of the water. The goal was to establish new versions of both of the icons and this was when the Rebel XX was created.
The Rebel XX is a progressive sneaker to say the least. The zipper on the medial side is the point of entry while the asymmetrical lacing that wraps across the upper is more of a bold statement for style. The two colorways that drop on 5/19 are must haves as they’re they OG Chicago and Top 3 colorway. The iconic Chicago colorway is the basic essence of AJ1 history with Chicago Red, Black, and White. The Top 3 colorway is a fusion of 3 infamous colorways of the AJ1. It’s got DNA from the ‘Royal’, ‘Chicago’, and ‘Banned’ colorways.
These are the ultimate mashup of heritage, style, and function. Get them in-store or online at Finishline.com on Saturday, May 19th.
And they say Chi City! What originally started as a leaked sample hitting the social waves from Frank Cooker back in August of 2017 has turned into a movement that honors MJ and the city he spent most of his career in. The sneaker blends together two of the most iconic colorways to ever bless the sneaker world and now you get the best of both worlds on one pair of kicks.
This Air Jordan 1 is made of up two different Retro 1s, as weird as that sounds. Split down the middle from the tongue all the way down to the toe-box and down the heel, the Jordan 1 ‘Banned’ and ‘Chicago’ become one. Created as a tribute to the city where Michael Jordan cemented himself as a legend, the Air Jordan 1 ‘Homage To Home’ features the famed ‘Banned’ and ‘Chicago’ colorways welded together lengthwise for one of the most unique Air Jordan 1 creations we’ve ever seen.
If you’re a diehard Jordan fan who cops all classic kicks that honor him or Chicago, then you’re definitely going to want to add these to your collection.
The wait is almost over, if these are on your radar then you can grab your pair of the Air Jordan Retro 1 High OG NRG ‘Homage to Home ’ on May 19th at Finishline.com with Free Shipping. Make sure you check with your local store for more release details.
What started as a player exclusive for one of Jordan Brands first athletes, Derek Anderson, evolved into something that went beyond the hardwood and became a symbol for so many. While Anderson was playing for the Portland Trailblazers he broke out a pair of Air Jordan 3’s that were similar to the ‘White Cement’ colorway, but had red on the heel strip instead of black. Many people would never have guessed back in 2003 that those Jordans would soon become symbolic of something that was much bigger than basketball. Fast forward to August 2006 and the country is preparing to rebuild after Hurricane Katrina ripped through Louisiana and many other southern states. As the clean up began and the storm dissipated, the alarming realization that the damage done was beyond anything that could have been predicted, and companies and organizations around the country joined the relief efforts. Jordan Brand donated select shoes from their archives to be auctioned off and put the funds toward the rebuild of the cities effected. The collection consisted of sneakers that had been worn by MJ but the one that stuck out the most was a Jordan 3 that came in a different colorway that Jordan have never worn. After that, the sneaker community had dubbed the sneaker that Air Jordan 3 ‘Katrina’ and the name symbolized a movement that meant something to millions of people.
In celebration of Michael Jordan being inducted to the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 2009, a special “Become Legendary” collection of Air Jordans was curated to be displayed in Springfield, MA. Once again, the ‘White and Red’ Air Jordan 3 was included amongst classic colorways. Having never been released to the public before, Jordan Brand is now bringing this shoe out of the history books and memorial halls to the general public. Colored in a classic White and Red theme, the sneaker mixes the popular Air Jordan 3 ‘Fire Red’ and ‘Cement’ colorways and will feature the classic Jumpman logo on the heel. Like you’ve seen before, the classic ‘Cement’ detailing is applied on the toe and heel areas to complete the design altogether.
Make sure you add this piece of history to your collection. Grab the Air Jordan Retro 3 ‘Hall Of Fame’ on May 12th at Finishline.com
Back at the beginning of December, Russell Westbrook broke out his signature shoe for the first time in an NBA game against his hometown team, the Los Angeles Lakers. Talk about a special way to debut your first shoe to the world. The Why Not Zer0.1 emulates Westbrook’s competitive attitude on the court, his tendency to run at a challenge head first rather than shying away from it. Serving a dual purpose, the upcoming silhouette fits the reigning MVP’s drastic demands on the court while suiting his eccentric personal style off the court.
Always playing on his toes, Westbrook needs added stability to his sole unit in order to minimize response when he makes one of his quick twitch drives to the basket he has become famous for. In order to come up with the perfect fit, Westbrook worked closely with Jordan Brand’s design team and the Thunder equipment manager, Wilson Taylor, as they went through multiple rounds of wear-testing to get the perfect fit. Equally as important as it functionality, the Why Not Zer0.1 serves an aesthetic purpose as well, as Brodie’s off-court wardrobe is a story to follow in itself. The next release of this signature sneaker comes in a fresh all-white upper that sits atop an icy sole. Inspired by Westbrook’s “Why Not?” mentality, this clean white colorway serves as a canvas for you to express yourself on. Coming with a Sharpie, this pair encourages you to be creative and make it truly your own.
Make sure you grab your pair of the Jordan Why Not Zer0.1 ‘Do You’ on May 1st at Finishline.com.
