Inspired by jerseys worn by MJ during a 1990 exhibition game in Barcelona.
Over the course of Michael Jordan's illustrious basketball career, His Airness appeared in multiple charity and exhibition games, both at home and abroad. In celebration of MJ's performances overseas, Jordan Brand announced an "International Flight" Pack consisting of three specially designed Air Jordans inspired by those friendly games that Jordan starred in years ago.
The collection kicked off at the end of June with an Air Jordan 3 commemorating Magic Johnson's 1998 Midsummer Night’s Magic Charity Game, and will continue this weekend with a brand new Air Jordan 5.
The "International Flight" Air Jordan 5s are built on a cream, blue and orange colorway, reminiscent of the uniform MJ wore during a 1990 exhibition game in Barcelona.
The kicks are officially slated to release, in sizes for the whole fam, this Saturday, August 25th for the retail price of $190. Major retailers like Foot Locker and Footaction will have the 5s in stock, as will Nike.com and several other sneaker shops and boutiques.
