The NBA superstar shares a passion for cars, just like Air Jordan himself.
Being that automotive inspiration finds itself in other various industries, it’s easy to make the connection that most show interest in cars regardless of their backgrounds. NBA legend Michael Jordan is a prime example, incorporating aspects of Ferrari models into the design of his popular Air Jordan sneakers. Jordan’s passion even carries over to NASCAR, where 23XI Racing fits its racecars with liveries that take after sneaker icons like the Air Jordan 11 ‘Concord’. Paving the way for future NBA players, Michael Jordan’s passion for automotive-inspired sneakers has rubbed off on present NBA all-stars like Jayson Tatum of the Boston Celtics. Jayson recently shocked the sneaker scene after sneaker photographer Ric Mestre spent some one-on-one time with his Ford Mustang-inspired player-exclusive Air Jordan models.

The Air Jordan 14s feature an all-black design that includes touches of premium leather, nylon, and patent leather. While the inner portion of each sneaker showcases a detailed leather diamond-pattern stitched surface, its outer side is layered with the same soft suede as a performance steering wheel. A patent leather toe cap acts as a nod to some of J’s most recognized sneaker designs, which all are designed similarly to the interior of a Ford Mustang Shelby GT500. Each heel tab and tongue of the exclusive Air Jordan 14 also includes Ford’s famous three stripes and Mustang logo. Along with the AJ14, Tatum also received a matching pair of Air Jordan 36s as part of being a Jordan Brand athlete.
