Release Info: The Revamped Air Jordan 5 ‘Stealth’ is a Silent KillerRelease: 27 March 2021
Originally released in 1990, the legendary Air Jordan 5 celebrated its three-decade anniversary last year. Riding on that momentum, the fan-favourite silhouette continues to make headlines in 2021, with the latest ‘Stealth’ colourway returning for the first time since 2006. Perfectly paired with the AJ5’s aggressive styling, the sneaker’s crispy clean tones make for one of the best Jordan Brand drops in recent memory.
Borrowing the tried-and-true scheme from 2006, this revamped Air Jordan 5 makes some subtle, yet refreshing adjustments to the OG colour arrangement. Most notably, the shark-teeth detailing on the midsole (inspired by the P-51 Mustang WW2 fighter plane) is given a darker black hue, as opposed to the ‘Hyper Royal’ seen on the first iteration. The rest of the configuration continues with the slight tweaks, with the collar lining and branding on the reflective tongue maintaining the bold blue look, but the backside of the tongue and heel Jumpman logo adopting the aforementioned black tone. Undoubtedly one of the highlights, the stark white leather upper provides a perfect accompaniment to the darker hues, while the icy blue outsole adds another modern touch.
So fresh, so clean! The 2021 Air Jordan 5 ‘Stealth’ arrives at JD Sports Australia on March 27.
