The Tinker-designed sneaker will be pushed to the forefront of Nike’s releases in 2022, one of which being the Air Jordan 5 "Racer Blue." Making its formal debut in the sneaker industry back in 1990, the Air Jordan 5 has gone on to astonish the globe with a variety of colorways. It has also amassed quite a library for itself in recent years through participating in joint initiatives.
First teased at the backend of Summer ’21, the sneaker is confirmed to be releasing this month. Rather than using the customary leather materials for the upper, this model is covered mainly in suede and is doused in a pure black shade. The ever present “Netting” found on the mid-foot area and underneath the laces is designed with a reflective coating. Meanwhile the tongue, takes on an “OG Metallic Silver” look. Shades of “Racer Blue” are found on the Jumpman logos on the tongues and lower heels, as well as the lace toggles and on parts of the midsole. To complete the look, the sole unit takes on an icy blue finish along with a window for the visible air unit.
The Air Jordan 5 "Racer Blue" will be available for $200 on SNKRS and at select shops on February 12th.
