    So the Jordan 14 “linen” released in 2005 in women’s sizing and I was unable to cop. So for about the last 7yrs I’ve been chasing a ghost. Haven’t been able to find my size, or they’re in poor condition, too expensive, and really, just not available. Stock X has no pairs at all, and GOAT has very few. I’m a size 9-9.5 in men’s so I needed at least a size 10.5-11 in women’s. Finally yesterday I get an alert from GOAT saying a size 11 was available (9.5 in men’s). Not only was my size available but I paid the asking price ($100+$10 shipping) to get them without any questions asked. I wasn’t about to haggle. So here they are, they’ll be in Monday and I can’t wait to get these on foot. The 14 is my favorite model. Now the only elusive pair I am waiting and waiting to get are the 1999 white UNC 14’s that were an Eastbay exclusive. Sometimes I think these are never going to land in my lap. So patience pays off. Feel like Drake and I found my fortune lol. And the best part is they’re in really good condition for for a shoe almost 15yrs old. OG all to boot. Anyway, thanks for the read. Anyone else have that shoe that just feels unattainable and hard to find? Anyone else chasing that holy grail of grails? 4BD1E546-AFEC-4BA7-88F3-49B97652E2AC.jpeg FA550ECF-25BC-4C37-A3CF-3913FE5D12BD.jpeg 85698F2C-90B4-4907-8090-C167F965BD7D.jpeg 0E0D1B34-9F81-49CA-B866-71E11E4BBCE9.jpeg AD344FC8-823C-45C4-AAB3-9529E0F38E45.jpeg

    Great read. But now that you have them, will you be wearing them? Either way must be a tough choice.

    I’ll be careful wearing those. Might get some midsole seperation

    They look to be in VNDS condition due to the creasing and the midsole is showing some foam compression which is a good thing.

    @A.J. wear them lightly around your crib for an hour or two before taking them to the streets.

    Some of our grails require significant amounts of patience. Paid off for you. Congrats!

    Love this colorway, one of the better retro+ on the 14 model. The forest greens are another color I really like.



    2005 was a good year, the 10s had a lot of good retro+ colors too.
