Fire Red 5s are one of the most iconic looks to ever grace Michael Jordan’s feet in-game. The shoes never helped him reach the NBA Finals, but when graced with that ’23’ PE block letter stitching on the heel, the Chicago theme was at its best in 1990. This weekend, Jordan Brand will be translating the look onto the Air Jordan 5 Low with a few minor changes. Outside of the low-top construction, the Black tongue and Fire Red midsole are pretty much a one-to-one match with the original. Here the mesh ventilation unit is tinkered with for an alternate black aesthetic, and while we’d love to see the ’23’ stitching return, it’s noticeably absent here. What do you think of the Air Jordan 5 Low “Fire Red”? Check out more photos below and if you can’t wait until Saturday, March 12th to pick up this pair for $175, know that you can find your size right now on eBay.
