The Jordan legacy grew to a gargantuan level at the start of the 1990s. His Airness and the Chicago Bulls proved to be the threat in the East. In that same vein, Michael Jordan and Jordan Brand launched the Air Jordan 5 — a stark contrast to previous models and a sign of what was to come.
The design language of the 5 immediately stood out. From its jagged spikes on the midsole, to the ventilated panels, and the reflective tongue with the Jumpman logo sewn, the fifth silhouette proved that Jordan and his sneakers were just getting started. The Air Jordan 5 matched Jordan's aggressiveness as the guard was on the verge of becoming the core of an unforgettable dynasty.
In February of 1990, one of the most recognized colorways of the Air Jordan 5 released as the "Metallic" colorway was dressed in a stealth black with silver and red detailing. 30 years after the release, the colorway continues to be at the forefront of performance and fashion. This time, the AJ5 "Metallic" is hitting the links.
Jordan Brand continues to bring its signature retros to the course with OG colorways that appeal to both golf connoisseurs and nostalgic sneakerheads looking for a new hobby. The colorway stays true to its origins with an updated bottom engineered for the green along with a ball marker where the AJ5 lace lock once stood.
The AJ5 Golf "Metallic" releases in-store on December 8. Stay tuned to Manor Phoenix for more upcoming releases.
