“The Air Jordan 5 brings back an original inspired by WWII fighter planes. It features the same iconic profile, genuine leather elements and a fabric sleeve for a snug, comfortable fit. Freshly updated with a sky blue suede upper and an icy outsole, these kicks sing a song for winter.
Michael Jordan: basketball legend, jumpman. It all began in 1984 when Michael Jordan came from the University of North Carolina to register for the NBA draft. One of his greatest dreams: an adidas deal. The brand with the three stripes said "Nope!", instead showing interest in physically larger, seemingly more dominant players. A good thing for NIKE, who wanted to get Jordan on board.
Material: Genuine Leather, Genuine Suede, Rubber
Since his game-winning shot that brought championship glory to North Carolina, Michael Jordan has been at the forefront of basketball consciousness. He took the court in 1985 wearing the original Air Jordan I, simultaneously breaking league rules and his opponents' will while capturing the imagination of fans worldwide.”
