Five for Fall.
Starting this Saturday, July 1st, Jordan Brand will kick off their brand new line of Air Jordan 5 colorways that pay tribute to Michael Jordan's beloved flight suits.
"Inspired by Michael Jordan’s high flying dunks, the Air Jordan line is deeply rooted in the idea of flight. First it was spelled out on the Air Jordan IV tongue, and then it inspired the entire design of the V. Taking the flight inspiration up a notch up from its predecessor, the V channeled WWII fighter planes. From the shark-mouth art to its reflective tongue and exaggerated lace locks, the V was the perfect complement to Jordan’s tenacious style of play."
"This season, the V returns and pays tribute to another trend that Jordan helped pioneer: the flight suit. Made famous during his rookie season, MJ’s iconic flight suits remained a staple throughout his career. Most notably, MJ favored the suits during now iconic photoshoots for the Bred and Royal Air Jordan 1s.."
