The link between Nike and the University of Oregon remains undefeated. Nike co-founder and chairman Phil Knight is an Oregon alum who ensures the Ducks’ athletic department receives nothing but the best. Over the years, no NCAA team has been able to create with the creativity of Eugene and Beaverton.
Last night, Oregon Ducks Football social media shared images of rare Air Jordan sneakers made for the team. Rumor has it that there are only 275 pairs, so they immediately become one of the most coveted shoes in the sneaker world.
Air Jordan 14
The Air Jordan 14 was initially released in 1998. Chicago Bulls legend Michael Jordan was so enthusiastic about the basketball shoes that he debuted them in the 1998 NBA Finals.
Since then, retro hoops have enjoyed unfailing popularity. Not only do fans rock the Air Jordan 14 casually, but some pro players wear them to NBA games. After nearly 25 years, the technology still holds up.

Jordan Brand spared no expense with the design of the Oregon Ducks Players Exclusive (PE) colorway. The shoe features a premium Gray suede upper with White leather overlays around the heel.
The Ducks logo appears on the shield logo, the “O” logo is located on the back heel and the “OREGON” wordmark is strategically placed on the tongue. Additionally, hits of green and yellow appear throughout the shoe.
These shoes are very unlikely to see a general release. However, fans can purchase other colorways of the Air Jordan 14 from sneaker resale sites like eBay, StockX, and GOAT. Stay locked into FanNationKicks.com for all of your shoe news.
