There’s still more than a month before 2016 comes in but right now, Jordan Brand is already teasing its fans by giving them a good peeks of the colorful sneakers slated for release next year.
Luckily, the upcoming Chinese New Year seems to be the inspiration behind the newest Air Jordan 5 Low China. The Chinese-themed pair looks enticing and apparently, Jordan Brand found enough inspiration to be creative with this particular pair.
Early this November, Sneaker News hinted that China is getting its very own Air Jordan 5 Low to honor the coming year’s zodiac sign. As it happens, 2016 falls as the Year of the Monkey but Air Jordan will commemorate the year by making a deviation from its standard release of Air Jordans – that is, instead of the clean Jordans, fans should look forward to sneakers with bold colors like the AJ5 Low China does.
Thanks to JB’s decision to start off with bold and brighter colors, the AJ5 China is a swirl of colorful design on the back, in front, and underneath the shoes. Nevertheless, the shoes are not overly done given that its leather base is predominantly black. The colorful designs are also tastefully placed on the tongue, the laces, the heels, in the center of the midsole, the insole, and the outsole.
With its black leather base and vibrant splash of multiple colors, the Air Jordan 5 Low China is will definitely leave a lasting mark on the history of Jordan Brand. Amidst the colors of the AJ5 Low China, the iconic Jumpman logo can still be seen on the heel of the shoes which seems to be highlighted with all the colors surrounding it. The heel part of the insole sports the same logo as well as the front part of the translucent blue outsole and the tongue with the same design. The insole is pretty unique too with its gradient blue color and geometric graphics.
For the most part, the translucent outsole of the China AJ5 Low looks perfect with the Mustang fighter and jet inspired shark teeth in bright crimson placed in the midsole and eyelets. An air unit is also visible from the side of the shoes for more breathability and better comfort.
The impending Jordan release date of the Air Jordan 5 Low China remains unknown but given that it will be releasing in the Spring of 2016 and that it’s a pair to honor the upcoming Chinese New Year, then we can only assume that we will be seeing this pair sooner rather than later.
