Golden tones land on one of the most popular Jordan Brand silhouettes of all-time with the release of this new Air Jordan 5 tomorrow.

Jordan Brand will be giving us golden retros in consecutive weeks starting off with this Air Jordan 5 Olympic that comes dressed in a premium White leather upper. Black accents on the midsole, upper eyelets, inner liner, and the branding on the heel and tongue provide some contrast and balance. What stands out the most are the hits of Metallic Gold that appear on the shiny tongue and the signature shark teeth on the midsole. An icy blue translucent outsole finishes off this Air Jordan 5.

Wouldn’t it be dope if Jimmy Butler or Carmelo Anthony busted these out on Sunday for the Gold Medal game at the Olympics? It’s a long shot, but hey you never know.

You can purchase a pair beginning tomorrow, August 20th, for a retail price of $190. Click and bookmark our official Air Jordan 5 Olympic (Gold Medal) launch page now for more images, details and release info.

Author’s Take

I’ve been going back and forth on whether or not I should pick these up but I finally made up my mind and decided that I’m gonna pass on them. I’m just not feeling the shiny gold on the tongue.
