[Update: May 19, 2020] After the huge comeback of the OG Air Jordan 5 Retro, there will soon be a new colorway. The re-launch of the OG colorway was already a success. The Jordan 5 was first released in 1990 and had already seen a re-release every now and then in the last years. We hope for those of you who have had this iconic sneaker on the list for a long time, that you got it. If not, you might be more interested in the new Air Jordan 5 Retro SP.
At this time, Nike hasn't given any details about the new Air Jordan 5 price, but we've got a mock-up for you via Py_rates. It shows us what the new Jordan might look like. There are no official details yet. It is expected that the Air Jordan 5 Retro SP will be available for €190 at selected retailers during the holiday season 2020.

Air Jordan 5 history
As you can see from the name of the Air Jordan, it was the fifth silhouette of the Jordan Brand. Around 1990 Tinker Hatfield came up with a new exciting idea for this Jordan, which celebrated its first release in 1990. Tinker was inspired by several fighter planes from the Second World War. The sneaker got its iconic mesh on the side of the Jordan, as well as the lace-lock on the top of the laces. Of course, you can't forget the reflective 3M tongue and the flame design used on the midsole! Did you know that the Air Jordan 5 was the first Jordan with a transparent outsole?

The new Jordan is very similar to the OG model of the Air Jordan 5 in many ways, in fact you get almost exactly the same shoe, except that the color of the uppers has been dyed off-white instead of pearl white.
