Following a women’s “Arctic Pink” Air Jordan 5 Low, the AJ5 returns in its traditional high-top build, sporting a “Racer Blue” colorway that closely resembles the “Black Metallic” style released in 2016.
Initially revealed as part of Jordan Brand’s Spring 2022 lineup, the silhouette boasts a mostly black suede upper. Transparent netting covers the side panels with “Iron Grey” landing on the eyestays. Touches of “Racer Blue” pop on the midsole, Jumpman logos, toggle and tongue liner. 3M covers the shoe’s exaggerated tongue, a feature designed to enhance flash photos of Michael Jordan while on the hardwood.
