Remember the blue suede shows that Elvis sang about? Well, Air Jordan for their part releases the Air Jordan 5 Red Suede shoes for anyone who prefers a fiery red shade rather than a cool blue. Either way, the suede material makes you want to wear these kicks anywhere for some much-appreciated attention.
Air Jordan 5 Red Suede
Size Run: Mens
Color:University Red/Black-University Red
Release Date:July 1, 2017
Style and Design
The official colors used for the kicks are university red and black-university red. It’s an all-red release with the suede used all over the shoes. Ordinarily, this would create an all-over even texture that’s close to boring. Air Jordan managed to turn it exciting however by making use of a layering pattern to add some depth to the shoes. From the images, you can see a distinctive pattern for the kicks, lending in some personality to the overall look of the shoes.
The quarter panel appears to be perforated, giving users a much needed breathing space. From the looks of the Air Jordan 5 Red Suede, these are the kind of shoes you would happily wear during intense activities.
Wisely enough, Air Jordan knew that using an all-red ensemble wouldn’t fly for many AJ buyers. To add some balance into the overall look, they’ve decided to use a greyish hue for the tongue, allowing it to stand out against the fiery red design. On the center of the tongue is the unmistakable Jumpman logo, beautifully embroidered onto the material in solid black. Suffice it to say, the icon really stands out amongst the rest of the kicks. On the back is the same Jumpman logo done in black.
The laces follow the same overall shade of the shoes in a fiery red complexion. Hopefully, finding replacement laces of the same color would be easy. If not, you can always use a grey shade – we’re guessing they would look just as good for the shoes. To top it off is a transparent lace lock.
The soles are done in the same shade of red with the midsole displaying a black patterned hue. For the outsole, you’ve got a translucent shade that runs all the way to the bottom of the kicks.
Price and Release
They’re supposed to be out by July 1, 2017 with a price tag of just $190. You have to admit, the cost of the kicks is well within the price tag typically attached to AJ shoes. All in all, it’s a fairly mouth-watering ensemble. If you want them, better make sure you’ve got your reservations in since it’s unlikely they’d last long.
