AIR JORDAN 5 RETRO
The date was August 30th, 1990. Location: Barcelona, Spain. The legendary Michael Jordan had just arrived to set off the new season of the local Spanish League. Judging the dunk contest and playing in the promotional game that followed against the Spanish All-Stars (in classic “Fire Red” Jordan 5s), MJ ended the evening with a team-high of 37 points, further solidifying his presence in international basketball.
Utilizing inspiration from this epic match-up, Air Jordan presents an all-new Jordan 5 “International Flight” to pay homage to MJ’s unmatched international influence on the sport of basketball. The shoe features a color way of Sail, Orange Peel, and Hyper Royal Blue, meant to incorporate the colorful combination of both teams’ jerseys, while the inner lining and netting draws inspiration from Barcelona’s influential street art. Dressing the bottoms, an ice blue and black outsole is presented, with a classic jumpman under the heel. Moreover, it includes a 3M style tongue, a Hyper Royal/Orange Peel colored “23” along each outer side, and is then finished off with an “Aire Jordan” tongue tag to bring the Spanish theme full circle.
Whether you cop them for the court, or for simple casual wear, this second addition to Air Jordan’s “International Flight” pack brings history, style and love of the game together while simultaneously drawing utter respect to your shoe game.
