Up Close with the Air Jordan 5 'Wings'
In 2016, Jordan Brand released a black/gold Air Jordan 12 ‘Wings'. The following year, we saw a pair of bronzed-out Jordan 1s added to the collection. Now, Team Swoosh expand the capsule with an Air Jordan 5. Unlike its metallic predecessors, these pairs are decked out in colourful pieces of art.
Word on the street says no two pairs will be identical, so you can expect the Chicago-inspired designs emblazoned on white leather uppers to be unique to you! Minty translucent lace locks and side panels double as glow-in-the-dark features, while a 3M tongue, icy outsole, and unique ‘Wings’ inner tongue tag round out the design.
MJ’s Wings initiative began in 2015 as a community action program devoted to providing at-risk youth with mentorship and a safe haven. By instilling confidence and education, the team aim to unleash the Jumpman in everyone.
No official release date as of yet, but pairs are expected to release within the next month or two. Stay tuned!
