Desert Sand is No Mirage
Desert Sand combines the season’s heat with MJ’s affinity for luxury sports cars. Air Jordan 14’s latest iteration keeps suede as the dominant textile for a smooth and low-key silhouette.
As fast as Desert Sand looks, it’s not simply fast fashion. It is here to stay, joining the ranks of other iconic Air Jordan 14 releases. There is no surprise there– Jordan has over 30 years of being a household name as well as a major presence in the fashion world.
With a color as unique as Desert Sand, textile choice is important. Suede’s reputation for high-brow luxury is the perfect match, whose refined look matches the fine grains of Desert Sand.

Speaking of sand, one cannot forget the true grit that the release celebrates. Air Jordan 14 debuted in 1998 as MJ “chased his sixth and final championship” (via Nike.com). The actual grit of Desert Sand is the legend of Jumpman that it echoes.
Infrared Goes to the Head
The neutral tone of Desert Sand is neatly sealed with black tongue and lace detail, but is kept edgy with flecks of infrared.
The shade that shocks is kept toward the back of the shoe, mostly in the heel counter. The fluorescent detail frames the heel counter for which Air Jordan 14 is best known. It draws attention to the “23” and Jumpman, all while rocking Roman numerals at the black heel pull.
