The Air Jordan 5 ‘Blue Bird’ is Ready to Take FlightRelease: 7 October 2021
Michael Jordan’s fighter jet continues to soar across the sneaker-sphere in 2021, the P-51-inspired Air Jordan 5 appearing in the indelible ‘Shattered Backboard’ and super sweet ‘Oreo’ colourways this year.
The latest in-line colourway to arrive from the Jumpman hangar also sings a pleasant melody, the Air Jordan 5 ‘Blue Bird’ expected to land on retail shelves in October.
Belonging to the Jordan Brand’s Fall/Winter 2021 catalogue, the AJ5 ‘Blue Bird’ has overhauled the classic premium leather uppers in favour of buttery smooth suede. Rendered in an icy aesthetic somewhat similar to the University of North Carolina Tar Heels, the ‘Blue Graphite’ palette shines on the Air Jordan 5, while signature reflective detailing on the tongues offer literal iridescence. Down below, ‘Metallic Silver’ graces the classic ‘shark teeth’, and signature treading brings patented hardwood utility.
Early reports suggest the Air Jordan 5 ‘Blue Bird’ will take flight on October 7. The retail price is locked at $190.
In the meantime, make sure to check out why the Air Jordan 5 is still a bad, bad boy.
