With its last notable iteration in Bronze, the classic Air Jordan 5 is expected to return in 2017, donning a brand new colorway and construction.

Elevated with more lifestyle appeal, the basketball sneaker is revamped with a premium suede/nubuck upper covered in dark olive green, while tan leather tongues further add luxe flair, as well as complementing its overall aesthetic. Other notable details include the traditional mesh netting located on its sides panels being more refined and opting for a minimalist finish. Furthermore, waxed rope laces and icy translucent outsoles solidify its updated profile.

Author’s Take:

Renz Ofiaza, News: This approach of reinterpreting classic Jordans with premium materials continue to be appealing in my opinion. I’m not against this iteration. It looks pretty solid so far.
