What to Expect
This new Air Jordan release 2017 is bathed in the color of Sequoia Green and presents a brand new construction technique from Air Jordan. With a layering approach and the use of superior leather, it is fairly obvious that these shoes will make a big hit in the market.
The tongue of the shoes has a warm brown color that allows it to really stand out from the primary green coloring. Yellow-brown and green are definitely two highly different colors in the color wheel but somehow, Air Jordan managed to make it work. The result is a very green and nature appeal that just prompts you into bringing these shoes on a long hike.
The Jumpman logo can be seen on the middle of the tongue. Deciding not to add any other color into the overall mix, the icon is simply embossed onto the material, creating a slightly raised silhouette of the famous logo. From the back, you can see another embossed incorporation of the logo, this time in green – following the general material of the shoes.
A triangle with the laces crisscrossed on it sits on the middle. The word Flight is beautifully engraved onto the material. The laces themselves are rounded. A little bad news though – they are the color of sequoia green which makes them very hard to replace. We strongly urge you NOT to lose these laces because using any other color might not work for the overall appeal of the shoes.
The soles are also made in the same shade of green. The outsole however is translucent, adding a bit more of personality to the overall design.
The interior also boasts of the same Jumpman coloring, this time of the yellow variety. Flip the shoes over and you can see another shining view of the same Jumpman logo, this time done in basic black with a white background.
All in all, the Air Jordan 5 Take Flight is an excellent choice for those who are looking for a balance of classic and trendy. We’re guessing that the shoes will be a little bit on the expensive side, but that’s to be expected considering the premium quality of the kicks. Keep in mind that there are more new Jordans for 2017 so if you don’t like this one, more will be coming in!
