Color:Black/Fire Red-Metallic Silver-White
Release Date:July 23, 2016
While Nike has been mum on when the sale of the shoes will start, some sources state that retailers have confirmed that it will be sold starting on July 23, Saturday. The new release from its branded retros will be the Air Jordan 5 “Black/Metallic.” It will be part of a series of “Remastered” releases that first debuted in late 2014. Air Jordan 5 “Black/Metallic” will allegedly start with a $220 price tag, making it one of the most highly anticipated sports apparel of the year.
It will have the mesh netting on the side panels as well as tongue that is typical as well as recognizable of the Air Jordan 5 series first designed by Tinker Hatfield. Like its predecessors, it will also have a 3M tongue and will be colored black as well as metallic silver white with the Jumpman icon emblazoned in fire red as the tongue logo in contrast with the reflective background, according to sneaker news. The emblem for the Nike logo is also threaded in metallic silver at the mustache of the Air Jordan 5 “Black/Metallic.”
Like other versions, Air Jordan 5 “Black/Metallic” is notable for its midsole as well as outsole, the shape of its tongue, higher eyelets and Lacelock. It is also interesting to note that it will also have the iconic “Air Jordan” tag in the interiors of the sneakers’ tongue.
The market issue of Air Jordan 5 “Black Metallic” is one of four confirmed major Air Jordan releases scheduled for the remainder of the year. The others are Air Jordan 1 High OG “Bred” (September 3), Air Jordan 3 “True Blue” (November 25) and Air Jordan 11 “Space Jam” (December 17). Air Jordan 1 High will also be in stores on July 9, with pure black and pure white variants of the high-top sneakers available for sale.
The first Air Jordan 5 version was released in 1990 in the middle of the 1989-1990 NBA season during which Chicago Bulls was starting to become a force in the league with Michael Jordan scoring his career high of 69 points. Its design was lifted after a Mustang fighter jet used during World War 2. Air Jordan 5 first started its retro line in 2000 and has had more than 40 releases since then.
