Brand: Off-White™ x Nike
Model: Air Jordan 5
Key Features: The Off-White™ x Air Jordan 5 “Sail” incorporates deconstructed details, while also featuring “23” branding in red towards the heel, matching the Jumpman logo placed atop the reflective silver tongue. “Nike Air” appears in black on the heel, while Virgil Abloh’s signature “SHOELACES” notation is applied to the laces. The midsole is done up in black to complement the cream-colored upper.
Release Date: Holiday 2020
Editor’s Notes: Shortly after dropping the highly-anticipated Off-White™ x Nike Air Jordan 5, Virgil Abloh shared an alternate colorway of the same silhouette on his Instagram (see below). This one featured the same synthetic ripstop upper (albeit in a sail colorway) and fully-reflective silver tongue.
The material on the upper looks similar to the Hyperfuse material Nike used on its basketball silhouettes in the early to mid 2010s. The sneakers also arrive with the customary zip-tie and Off-White™ text branding.
Insider @HanZuYing has given us our best look yet at the “Sail” Off-White™ x Air Jordan 5, which is rumored to release this holiday season for $225. As always, you’ll want to check back with us for confirmed information.
