Air Jordan 5 is Jordan’s fifth generation of sneakers, designed by Tinker Hatfield, a designer of the famous Jordan series. The typical feature of AJ5, which was debuted in 1989, is the flame graffiti of American Mustang fighter. The large 3M reflective tongue on the upper of the shoe, the ventilation net on the side of the shoe and the transparent rubber sole are all the brilliant designs of AJ5.
Air Jordan 5——SP Michigan
The AJ5 Retro SP, named “Inspire”, is based on the theme color of the University of Michigan, yellow and Navy blue. The bright yellow suede body is inspired by the University of Michigan team uniform color matching, complemented by black midsole and light blue crystal outsole embellishment. It has a strong visual impact and is impressive.
Details are also quite brilliant. The tongue is made of 3M reflective material. Instead of using the traditional “M” logo of the University of Michigan, the sneakers are printed with “Inspire” similar to the player’s name style on the shirt to reflect the theme of the sneakers. The big AJ logo on the sole and outside of the tongue is also very eye-catching.
Air Jordan 5——Retro International Flight
This air Jordan 5 “international flight” is a perfect match for Jordan’s fast and aggressive style on the court. At the same time, another highly designed and decorative midsole also has a profound and significant impact on the design and construction of the AJ series of shoes for future generations. This innovative design is very noticeable. The side of the shoe body is made of transparent mesh material instead of leather material. It has air permeability and reduces the weight of the shoe itself. It does not give people a very heavy and cumbersome feeling. And transparent mesh material also provides support, so that the side and surface of the shoes will not easily dent.
The sole is made of a transparent rubber sole with excellent grip firstly. Especially in the venue competition, the grip is particularly prominent, there will be no skidding phenomenon. The large 3M reflective surface of the tongue is also a highlight of this shoe, which is particularly noticeable on the court, and the design of the reflective strip is quite fashionable. There is also a small detail in the shoelace part. It uses the “shoelace fastening buckle” support, making the wrapping of shoes more prominent, and even if the shoelace is loose, it will not affect the wearing experience. The theme of this international flight is Barcelona, Spain. The color of the theme is beige, which represents the mild sunshine of Barcelona. Blue and orange are also inspired by Barcelona’s street art.
