OGs have rougher material on the top cap, metal lace tips rather than plastic, and unlike the Retros there insole is cut to fit the vent on the inner side of the shoe.

They've dropped twice so far in 1999 and 2005, and they're dropping again this upcoming holiday season for the 3rd time.

OG XIV black/reds from 1999:
1. the leather on the toe and around the Ferrari-styled Jumpman logo is almost like nubuck,
which means the hairy leather is short cut and rough.
2. the tongue is shorter
3. the insoles are cut that the ventilation hole on the innerside in the midsole can fully breathe!
especially when you walk outside, you can feel the fresh air flowing in!
4. lacetips are made of metal

retro XIV black/reds from 2005:
1. the leather on the toe and around the Ferrari-styled Jumpman logo is clearly made of suede,
looking and feeling similar to the suede of the XVIII black/sport royals!
2. tongue is longer than on the OG
3. insoles are regular cut blocking the ventilation hole and prevents the cooling effect

4. lacetips are made of chrome painted plastic


Retro XIV black /reds from 2011:

almost like the 2005 retros but somehow JB messed up the heel colorblocking

with the red 


Overall the 2005 retros feel at least the same like on the OG, and qualitywise it still belongs to the
more authentic retros.

Could you just cut the insole?

All the same shoe. Although you got the OG and Retro, sounds like ur speaking of them as if their entirely different pairs. Where have you been?

Every incarnation of the 14s hasn't changed much from the original release. IMO, the 14 and the 12s are probably the most consistent Jordan Brand products in terms of quality over the years.

the only 14s i would LOVE to have are the Prototypes that he wore when he crossed Russell. the Side was SMOOTH leather, NOT the lines that they actually ended up with. man i would love to see a photo of THOSE!!!

Well, i really don't understand why they have to change the section at the upper heel
from black to red. Just glad i have the 05 last shots because they look at least authentic to the

OG in terms of color blocking ^^
