This release pays homage to the first Jordan that Virgil ever owned, the Air Jordan 5. In signature fashion, Virgil has reimagined this classic silhouette in a way that embraces the importance of Nike Air technology. This Air Jordan 5 features a Sail upper, 3M reflective tongues, Black midsole with Fire Red overlays atop an aged translucent outsole. This top half is built of a yellowed TPE-like material, a synthetic textile that simultaneously nods to the AJ5’s 30-year legacy and its future. Red “23” stamps and similarly fashioned “Nike Air” logos show a reduced imprint underneath their synthetic shell, while the cages and the collar reuse the hole-centric motifs of the designer’s current interest — both intended to be cut out by those brave enough.
