Model: Air Jordan 5 “Fire Red”
Key Features: The Nike product shots give us a closer look at the model’s rear details including its clear icy outsole, black midsole, and red “Nike Air” branding over the white heel counter. The sneaker stays true to the OG with a white leather base and red and black detailing on the sock liner, tongue, midsole, and heel. The tongue features silver reflective detailing, while the heel swaps out the Jumpman logo seen on previous iterations for the OG “Nike Air.”
Release Date: Available now
Editor’s Notes: Following previous leaks and delayed release dates, the Nike Air Jordan 5 “Fire Red” has been officially released. The sneaker was surprise-dropped in small numbers to celebrate the premiere of ESPN’s Michael Jordan docu-series, The Last Dance. It will see a wider release on May 2 via Nike SNKRS and select retailers.
With the Air Jordan 5 celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, Nike is expected to ramp up releases of the iconic silhouette, the “Fire Red” colorway with the OG “Nike Air” branding being one of them. Another notable release to get the “Nike Air” relaunch is the “Bred” Nike Air Jordan 4, which dropped last year.
