Coming Soon: Air Jordan 5 Retro “Dark Concord”

When it comes to Air Jordan Retros, original colorways are almost always preferred – how could they not be? The cool factor that comes from seeing Michael Jordan wear a pair of OG Air Jordans on the court is rarely (if ever) matched, even by the high-profile collaborations we’ve been seeing of late. But what happens when an original color scheme of a beloved model makes its way onto a silhouette that has no ties to said blocking? It looks like we’re about to find out.

The similarities between the forthcoming Air Jordan 5 “Dark Concord” and the original Air Jordan 11 colorway go beyond the appointed moniker. This release will feature a white leather upper and black foam midsoles, which mimic the “Concord” Air Jordan 11’s black patent leather mudguards.

Like the OG, this new release uses its namesake sparingly. The grape flavor dresses the midsole’s shark teeth, sockliners, and Jumpman embroidery at the tongues and the heels. In another nod to the original, the side-panel mesh netting and rubber outsoles are done in an icy, semi-translucent rubber.

Looking to grab a pair? Head over to or your nearest DTLR store to purchase the Air Jordan 5 Retro “Dark Concord” on August 6th. They will be available in full-family sizing.
