UPDATE: One of five Air Jordan 5s scheduled for release before September, the AJ5 'White Cement', will hit stores in just over a month's time. If you were undecided on this spiritual throwback, these official shots from the Jumpman might just sway you. It wouldn't be a true AJ5 without a reflective tongue and, thanks to these fresh snaps, we can confirm the tongue shines bright as day even in the lowest of light.
If you plan to add the Air Jordan 5 'White Cement' to your collection, you'll be able to cop on August 5 through NDC and select Jordan Brand stockists.
Jordan purists might not be jumping at the opportunity to grab the ‘White Cement’ Spi’zikes, but these AJ5s will definitely have their attention. The colourway made famous by this Jay's predecessors has been truthfully recreated – an expanse of white leather is used up top, a translucent outsole peeks out from beneath and red Jumpman branding sits in pride of place. Add the fact that it's extremely rare for an AJ5 to be graced with a grey cement speckle into the mix, and you’ve got a release that retro Jordan heads will be watching closely.
Official release information for the Air Jordan 5 White Cement isn’t out, but some sources are reporting they’ll be in stores on August 5.
