Air Jordan 5
The Air Jordan 5s burst onto the scene in 1990. The shoes kept the 4’s mesh side panels but made an innovative change that revamped the look with the first appearance of a translucent sole. Nike designer Tinker Hatfield took inspiration from World War II-era fighter planes when he blended the legendary “shark-teeth” look into the sneaker's design along the midsole. With such a game-changing design, it didn’t take long for the shoes to take off. Riding on the back of the catchphrase “It’s gotta be the shoes,” from Spike Lee’s memorable commercials, the Air Jordan campaigns demonstrated how Michael Jordan became a force of nature within the NBA who would go on to transform into an icon that transcended basketball. The men's Air Jordan 5 Retro Shoe combines throwback style with modern comfort. Innovations like the reflective 3M tongue, mesh netting on the tongue and upper, and a molded ankle collar took the shoes to new heights. The leather and mesh upper provides durability and airflow, while encapsulated Air-Sole units in its forefoot and heel offer plush comfort. The herringbone outsole features flex grooves for traction and ease of movement. Check out our collection of Jordan 5 Retros today in-stores or online at Hibbet Sports.
