Streetwear titan Supreme’s most anticipated release of the year is easily its collab with Jordan Brand for an Air Jordan 5. Now the official word has come down, the sneaker will be available tomorrow (Oct. 16).
The Supreme x Air Jordan 5 will arrive in three colorways, a black, white and the illest being a “Desert Storm” like option.
A pioneering molded construction, raised medial side for ankle support and unique lace toggle for a secure fit were all engineered to assist Jordan’s game. It was created to grab attention too – a reflective tongue was applied to light up with camera flashes and complement an innovative clear ‘ice’ sole.
As well as influencing several shoes beyond basketball, the Air Jordan 5 was immortalized on film, TV and record sleeves, its influence spanned inner cities as well as an international audience.
Supreme branding can be seen on the mesh side panels and inside the shoe’s tongue. There is also a Jordan Brand x Supreme hang tag. No proper word on the t-shirt Michael Jordan himself was spotted in, yet.
The shoes will NOT be sold in Supreme’s New York and Los Angeles stores; likely to prevent the jux since these kicks will be selling at sick after market prices if you can’t find a plug. They will be available in the London store tomorrow and online. Japan gets their kicks on October 17.
