Official Images: The Return of The Air Jordan 5 ‘Raging Bull’Release: 10 April 2021
After rumours began circulating back in September last year, we now have official pics of the Air Jordan 5 ‘Raging Bull’ that is set to return in the coming months. This legendary AJ5 is a worthy member of our list of the All-Time Greatest AJ5s, and was first released in 2009.
The design features luxe red suede with matching laces, while classic 3M reflective tongues, embroidered heels, and throwback translucent outsoles complete the design. The fiery colourway delivers extra bite thanks to the AJ5’s signature shark teeth along the midsole. Original pairs of the ‘Raging Bull’ fetch a princely sum on the resale market, so Jordan Brand devotees will be sure to snatch a pair of the impending retro release.
The Air Jordan 5 has enjoyed a strong run in recent years. Designer Tinker Hatfield famously modelled the silhouette on America’s WWII P-51 fighter jets. Launched during the 1989–90 season, the Air Jordan 5 helped fuel Michael Jordan’s devastating aerial attack against the Motor City ‘Bad Boys’, as the Chicago Bulls and Detroit Pistons locked in for a long and brutal post-season slugfest.
Pairs of the ferocious Air Jordan 5 ‘Raging Bull’ are expected to charge into stores on April 10.
