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 cream 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.
Initial rumors indicated the second colorway would drop at some point in the summer, though leak account @zsneakerheadz now claims it will be released during the holiday season later this year. Perhaps unsurprising given the massive disruption caused by the coronavirus.
Other leak accounts have created mockups of a third colorway (in the gallery above), which is said to be dropping alongside the pair Abloh has already teased. This would fall in line with the three collaborative Air Jordan 1 colorways that were released in 2017 and 2018 as part of “The Ten,” though nothing is confirmed just yet.
As always, stay tuned for details as we get them.
