Though many have been postponed, this year’s Jordan releases are already poised to be something special, including quite a few noteworthy collaborations as well as long-awaited revivals. Among the latter, the Air Jordan 5 is set to reprise its “Fire Red” colorway, though it’ll just take a little bit longer to arrive as we wait out COVID-19. Dressed to its original likeness — a trend throughout the entire Nike umbrella as it seems — the upper is replete with white leathers and matching inner cages. Accents atop, such as the heel’s “Nike Air” embroidery and the laces top-placed toggle, are as they would be on the OG, dyeing both a bright red while surrounding the lace fixture with clear acrylic. Linings, the Jumpman insignia, and the patterns along the black midsole all form in the titular shade, with the tongues themselves finishing with the pair’s signature silver metallic. Grab an official look at the Fire Red 5s right here and expect to see them hit Nike.com and select retailers come April 25th.
