Air Jordan 5 (V)
Air Jordan 5 : 1990–1991
It was back in February 1990 when the retail debut of the Air Jordan 5 took place and Jordan Brand dropped four colorways that year. Prior to the Air Jordan 5, none of the models from the Air Jordan line that Jordan Brand had released had ever featured a clear rubber sole. The idea for the Air Jordan 5’s clear rubber sole came from the clear molding of the Nike sneaker worn by Marty McFly in Back to the Future II. The Air Jordan 5 also marked the first time foam was molded into an Air Jordan sneaker’s upper.
In 2015, Jordan Brand collaborated with Supreme to release not one but three Air Jordan 5 colorways. Several Air Jordan 5 retro releases are also scheduled for 2016 like the “Black/Metallic” colorway.
