The Air Jordan 5 is one of the most iconic of all Jordans. Released in 1990, the Jordan 5 introduced several different features that were never seen on an Air Jordan before, or even on any shoe before.

The Air Jordan 5 features a soft upper, with see through side panels. The Jordan 5 introduced 3M reflective material on a shoe (which is on the tongue) and a translucent sole. The midsole features spikes, which were inspired by a World War II Mustang Fighter Plane. The shoe also came with lace locks.

The Jordan 5 has since been released in multiple colourways ranging from Supreme New York collaborations to the incredibly rare and exclusive motorsport colourway.
