The Air Jordan line has always taken inspiration from the act of flight, both on and off the court. In 1990 it was WWII fighter planes, whose forms and features – especially the shark-mouth nose art – were echoed by the Air Jordan V's most distinct design lines. The theme was continued on the classic red-and-black flight suits from the same era. The latest Air Jordan V connects both expressions of flight, delivering a stand-out look that's loaded with history.
Taking cues from the 2009 “Toro” version, the upcoming Air Jordan 5 model will feature an all-red suede upper with hits of black on the Jumpman logo, sock linear and midsole. Reflective metallic silver accents on the tongue also complement the sneakers’ look, while an icy blue translucent outsole finishes off the entire look of the shoes.
