The Air Jordan 5 ‘Blue Bird’ Sings a Sweet Tune
Release: TBC

Forming part of Jordan Brand’s recently unveiled Holiday 2021 collection, the Air Jordan 5 ‘Blue Bird’ sings a very sweet tune. A women’s exclusive, this AJ5 opts for a calming shade of blue across its suede uppers. Down below, the midsole offers some hits of contrast, with those signature shark teeth providing one of the Air Jordan 5’s most easily-recognisable design features.

The Air Jordan 5 has been something of a quiet achiever so far in 2021, dropping some very solid releases while other Jumpman signatures take most of the spotlight. Renowned Nike designer Tinker Hatfield famously modelled the silhouette on America’s WWII P-51 fighter jets. Launched during the 1989–90 NBA 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.,

This ‘Blue Bird’ colourway offers a much less aggressive vibe for the AJ5, and pairs are rumoured to be landing in early October via Nike and the usual Jumpman stockists, such as GOAT. We’ll let you know if an official date is announced.
