First, there was the AJ2 Alternate ’87. Then, there came the AJ4 Alternate ’89. Last but not the least, the Air Jordan 5 Low Alternate 9 has now made its mark.
Air Jordan 5 Low “Alternate ’90”
Jordan Release Date: Spring of 2016
What can we say? Jordan Brand has surprised sneaker heads again. If the long line of retro releases has not satisfied fans, then the culmination of the Alternate Collection with the release of the Air Jordan 5 Low “Alternate ’90” would do it.
Though last in the series of MJ’s Player Exclusives Alternate Collection, the AJ5 Low Alternate ’90 brings the symbolic success of Michael Jordan’s career to a halt with its classic combination of colorways, translucent mesh paneling, speckled deep red accents, as well as black nubuck dressing.
But that is not all that you should note with the new retro Air Jordan 5 Low Alternate ’90.
At first glance, the AJ5 Low ’90 looks much the same like the “Dunk From Above” retro version of the Air Jordan 5 and for a good reason. Both come to be a side by side version of the AJ5 Lows but the Alternate ’90 sports the timeless colorway of the Chicago Bulls where Michael Jordan first played during his early career. The period of 1987 to 1990 has become historic for Michael Jordan which made his new Alternate Collection a fitting mark for his 30 years long of success in as well as outside the court.
A classic low-top the Air Jordan 5 Low “Alternate ’90 features a full black-based upper, which is a complete opposite of the AJ4 Alternate ’89, as well as sports a fully translucent red outsole with the iconic Jumpman logo seen peeking through. An embossed “JORDAN” can also be found on the outsole. The red accents throughout the shoes are made even more remarkable with a speckled black finish. The “Alternate 90s” main signature highlight is its Metallic 3M silver tongue with an embossed Jumpman logo. All in all, the classic Jumpman can be seen on the “Alternate ’90s” tongue, heel, as well as outsole.
With the trademark beauty, quality, as well as sophisticated kicks of the Jordan Brand, the spring of 2016 would definitely be a good year for the Alternate Collection. Be sure to watch out for the release of the Air Jordan 5 Low Alternate ’90 as it hits Jordan Brand retailers worldwide to get your own pair of kicks.
