More detailed images of this latest take on the Air Jordan 5 is showcased, as the model essentially coordinates with the Summer 2016 Olympics, which is scheduled to take place in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, from August 5th to 21st.

Comprised of a pristine white leather upper, hits of black are implemented on the inner lining and prominently on the midsole unit. To evoke the gold medals given in the ceremonies, the shimmering hue adorns the tongue, in addition to the distinctive jagged component across the sole unit.

Other notable design details include the signature clear netting overlay across its quarter panels, goldish lace locks to adjust the tightness of the lacing system, as well as complementing the respective theme, while branding is prominent on the tongue label and heel.

Finished off with an icy translucent outsole, look for this model to drop at select JB and Nike accounts on Saturday, August 13th for $190.

Author’s Take

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