Here it is, the official announcement of a highly anticipated hype release, between two street – sportswear pioneers. Supreme has worked with Jordan Brand to create a new version of the Air Jordan 5. Made exclusively for the streetwear brand, the ” Air Jordan 5″ will be offered in three colorways.
The Air Jordan 5 was introduced in 1990. Evolving the series’ flight aesthetic, its design was inspired by a WWII fighter plane, down to the teeth-like midsole inspired by military nose art. Worn by Jordan for the start of the Chicago Bulls’ first championship season – setting off their first three-peat, and a double-act of MVP awards -it remains a fan favorite. A pioneering molded construction, raised medial side for ankle support and unique lace toggle for a secure fit were all engineered to assist Jordan’s game. It was created to grab attention too – a reflective tongue was applied to light up with camera flashes and complement an innovative clear ‘ice’ sole.
The Supreme/Air Jordan 5 will be available Online and in their London store Friday, October 16th. Good luck!
