UNBOXED Episode 31: Air Jordan Retro 5 'International Flight'
Published: August 23, 2018Written By: DTLR Team
An iconic backstory to an iconic silhouette! Jordan brand took one of Jumpman's most influential styles and combined it with a clean, modern and unique colorway.
Inspired by Michael Jordan's exhibition game in Barcelona against the Spanish National All-Star team, this silhouette takes cues from the blue and orange jerseys worn by the team. In classic MJ style, he approached the game with ultimate intensity, including switching teams at halftime, collecting 37 points and judging a slam dunk contest all in one showing. The latest Air Jordan V sports the colors of the jerseys he wore during the game, and a mosaic pattern inspired by Barcelona street art. As a finishing touch, the "Air Jordan" tongue tag is translated in Spanish.
Men's Air Jordan 5 Retro Shoe delivers heritage style and modern comfort. It combines leather and mesh on its upper for durability and airflow, while encapsulated Air-Sole units in its forefoot and heel offer plush comfort.
