If you’re in the market for a brand new pair of excellent AJ kick, you might want to check out the Air Jordan 5 “Camo” which is set for release this year. The shoes are inspired by a military theme but with a slightly more subtle depth on the coloring.
Air Jordan 5 Camo
Size Run: Mens
Color: Dark Stucco/Fire Red
Style Code: 136027-051
Release Date: September 2, 2017
The Air Jordan 5 silhouette is already a favourite for many. Compounded by the “Camo” colorway, it’s definitely going to be a big hit once it becomes available on the shelves.
The official colors for the Air Jordan 5 “Camo” are grey and red with splashes of translucence along the side. In all honesty however, the shoes look more green’ than grey as Air Jordan managed to hit on a color combination that is uniquely their own.
The grey-green covers most of the shoes with the red confined mainly along the accent of the kicks and a limited portion of the midsole. The tongue displays a camouflage coloring, which is probably how the kicks got its name.
Another splash of red can be found on the centerof the tongue where the Jumpman icon is beautifully stitched onto the material. It’s a fairly large copy of the image so you can easily see it from far away. The same icon is stitched inside the shoes while the heels have the AIR 23 logo stitched onto the surface.
The laces are done in the same color as the majority of the kicks. While it definitely helps with a blending, this is actually less than appealing since shoelaces need to be replaced every now and then. As the laces are fairly unique in coloring, you might have a hard time finding a proper replacement should there be a need. Topping off the look is a transparent lace lock.
There’s not much to be said about the soles as they follow the general pattern of the kicks with a bit of translucent lining for the outsole.
What really sets off the Air Jordan 5 “Camo” however would be the reflective detailing. Based on the pictures, the shoes would display a highly different colorway when placed under black lighting. The entire shoes turn black with the camodetails turning a sharp white contrast. That being said, you’re essentially getting two different shoes in one package!
