Man I don't know... XIV retros are some of the WORST. Even the first retro from 05-06 are an embarrassment to the original. I'm sure the materials will be fine, but the physical build of every retro XIV has just been buns unfortunately. The original is SOOOO comfortable, but fashionistas out here complained about the midsole creasing and none of the retro midsoles crease, but they are not NEARLY as soft and supple.

:\ man bros...

none of the retro midsoles crease? explain the pics and vids I've seen online of creased retros and my CDPs are creased. sure it's not as good as the originals but they're definitely not "buns". I hoop in cdps and black toes with no issues they are some of my favorite basketball shoes on court.

I hooped heavy in the first retro blk/red, and did the same with the original, it's not that the retro didn't perform, it was just a steep drop off from the og.

Pic I just took of midsole creasing, OG on the right



I will admit the retro does crease, but less heavily, and the phylon is NOTICABLY firmer to the touch.

JB coming for my pockets all guns blazing... I haven't went hard on retros since 2011-2012 though, so I guess I'm due.

It's about damn time....

These are the only real 14 that ever really mattered IMO, outside of the Royal Low's
 ​
I've been waiting since the 5th grade (1999) to get my hands on these.... And they will be had.
 ​
I just hope JB doesn't F this shoe up some kinda way... With the "Remastered" gimmick they currently have goin' on...
 ​
I expect nothin' less than '99 quality, DON'T change the colors, or the pattern of the leather part of the shoe either JB...
