Where to Buy the Air Jordan 5 ‘Orange Blaze’ AKA ‘Shattered Backboard’
Jordan Brand’s Fall 2021 collection was chocked full of 14 tasty iterations, one of them being a new and inventive take on the Air Jordan 5. Given the ‘Shattered Backboard’ moniker, it was plastered in subtle orange touches that perfectly complement the tweaked construction of the upper. Gearing up to drop, it will round out Jordan Brand’s Fall lineup, and lead into their spicy ,Holiday collection.
The front area of this AJ5 has been doused in leather, and mixes with textile mesh throughout. Usually, we only see a small portion of mesh along the lateral and medial sides, but for this joint Jordan Brand extended it to wrap the ankle collar. It’s been an interesting build-up, as it seems some sneakerheads are torn by this amendment. Will you be copping on drop day? Elsewhere, the tongue rocks the fan-favourite 3M details, with the midsole bringing the ‘Shattered Backboard flavour, doused in ‘Orange Blaze’. Silver-speckled shark teeth round out the aesthetic.
You still have time to organise yourself, the Air Jordan 5 ‘Orange Blaze’ AKA ‘Shattered Backboard’ will be arriving on shelves on October 3. The retailers seen below in this Where to Buy guide will be stocked and ready come the drop date, and we’ll keep this post updated as more stores reveal their release plans.
