With the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, concluding on the August 21st, this special edition Air Jordan 5 will be offered just a day before the closing ceremony to commemorate the global sporting event.

Evoking first-place vibes, the silhouette’s defining metallic gold element is prominent on the tongue, lace lock and the shark tooth-inspired component across its midsole unit. Pristine white leather for its upper, alongside contrasting black accents on the midsole unit and inner lining solidify the clean palette, as it’s topped off with an icy translucent outsole.

Priced at $190 — GS (3.5Y – 7Y), PS (11c – 3Y) and TD (2c – 10c) sizes will be offered as well and listed at $140, $80 and $60, respectively.

You can find it at select JB and Nike stockists starting Saturday, August 20th.

I’m a fan of the silhouette in general. I really like the execution on this pair. I’m all for the clean upper and how the gold accents are subtle.
