With the 31st Olympiad concluding this Sunday in Rio, this Air Jordan 5 Olympic celebrates the global sporting event this weekend.

Exuding a champion spirit in mind, the defining element of gold simply prominent on the tongue, shark tooth-inspired component across the midsole unit and lace lock. The overall composition is rounded out with a white leather upper, as black accents are utilized for the midsole unit and inner lining. Finally, an icy translucent outsole caps off the first-place design.

Set to drop at JB and Nike stockists this Saturday, August 20th — adult sizes will retail for $190, while GS, PS and TD sizes are listed at $140, $80 and $60, respectively.

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.
