The public first gained access to the Air Jordan 5 in February 1990. The sneakers were designed by the now legendary Tinker Hatfield. The designer surmised that Michael Jordan’s game was like a fighter plane. With Jordan’s above the rim performances one can understand Tinker’s thinking.

Jordan 5 Design Features

Collectors will know this type of Jordan sneaker features shark teeth elements reminiscent of a British World War II fighter jet. The design takes further inspiration from the Nike Air Mag worn by Marty MacFly in the movie Back to the Future II. The inspiration can be seen when Tinker included icy clear soles. Along with clear rubber soles, the Air Jordan 5 would be the first to have molded foam into the upper. In addition to the Shark teeth on the mid-sole another defining feature of these Jordans would be the 3M reflective tongue with an embroidered Jumpman logo. The tongue and side panels have mesh netting and each pair comes with a duo of lace locks.

Debut of the Air Jordan 5

When they first debuted in 1990 four colorways were introduced. The pair known to sneakerheads as “Fire Reds” featuring White/Black-Fire Red released first. The “Metallic” 5s which featured Black/Black-Metallic Silver followed. The “Grape” colorway then came out featuring White/Grape Ice-New Emerald. Released that year ┬álimited to only 100 pairs were Fire Reds and Metallic 5s with 23 embroidered on the outside heel.

Since the original release in 1990 the Air Jordan 5 has seen a great number of retro releases. Customers can browse here to buy their favorite pair of Air Jordan 5 trainers today!
