Supreme/Air Jordan 5
The Air Jordan 5 was introduced in 1990. Evolving the series’ flight aesthetic, its design was inspired by a WWII fighter plane, down to the teeth-like midsole inspired by military nose art. Worn by Jordan for the start of the Chicago Bulls’ first championship season — setting off their first three-peat, and a double-act of MVP awards — it remains a fan favorite.
A pioneering molded construction, raised medial side for ankle support and unique lace toggle for a secure fit were all engineered to assist Jordan’s game. It was created to grab attention too — a reflective tongue was applied to light up with camera flashes and complement an innovative clear ‘ice’ sole.
As well as influencing several shoes beyond basketball, the Air Jordan 5 was immortalized on film, TV and record sleeves, its influence spanned inner cities as well as an international audience.
Supreme has worked with Jordan Brand to create a new version of the Air Jordan 5. Made exclusively for Supreme, the Air Jordan 5 will be offered in three colorways.
