Air Jordan 5
The Jordan 5 is like like the Van Gogh of Jordans, its legacy and popularity has grown exponentially years after it was putting in the real work. It now stands as a retro sneaker essential in any Jordanhead’s collection. There’s a few reasons for that, firstly, Jordan was wearing a pair of Jordan 5 Fire Reds during his blistering 69-point game against the Cavs in 1990 – a personal record he never topped. The 5 was also the focal point of the ‘Is It The Shoes?’ ads with Spike Lee, which has become one of the most loved basketball campaigns ever. But most importantly, the Jordan 5 just looks fly. It’s been retro’d in six years since 1990, and new renditions like the ‘Wolf Grey’ and the Undefeated colab have brought even more love and hype to the shoe. Jordan did get it right the first time though, we know because the 5 owned 2013 as it celebrated its 23rd anniversary by causing plenty of shoe store pandemonium thanks to the release of OG colours.
