Was the Air Jordan 5 Supposed to Retro in 1995?

air jordan 5 1995 sample 12 570x425 Was the Air Jordan 5 Supposed to Retro in 1995?

Air Jordan retros first happened back in 1994, when Michael’s first three sneakers were re-introduced and the Swoosh first realized how much mileage was still left in those classic models. The retro steam would pick up again at the end of the decade, but it looks like there was almost another edition amongst those mid-90s ones. Shown here is an Air Jordan 5 sample that was purportedly produced back in 1995. The sneakers feature the “Nike Air” embroidery on the back, the upside down “Air Jordan” script on the inside of the tongues, and some proper yellowing as evidence of their age (They’re also missing a little bit of paint on the midsoles). Continue reading for a better look at this strange Jordan 5 from 1995 and then get a look at the chance to own the pair from 7ad3jc on eBay.

nike air maestro flight 1 1992 08 Nike Basketball Inside Access: Nike Air Maestro Flight 1

Back in 1992 there was a key division amongst Nike Basketball’s on-court offerings. There was the “Force” line, designed for bulkier players, and there was the “Flight” line, intended for the athletes who attacked the hardwood with a faster style of play. Debuting that year and quickly becoming a hallmark of the line was the Nike Air Maestro Flight 1, a sneaker worn by luminaries like Scottie Pippen, Ron Harper and John Stockton during the 1992-93 season. Of course that wasn’t the only place you could spot the sneakers back then – a young Jason Kidd also donned them during his freshman year at Cal. Continue reading for some vintage shots of the sneaker, as well as a glance at the new Hyper Rev design that it helped inspire, and read more on this classic Nike Basketball silhouette over at Nike INC now.

More universally beloved models have come out of that era than any other, but for all the timeless classics that have stood the test of time and remained relevant, there are still tons of great blasts from the past that have slipped through the cracks and will most likely never be seen or heard from again.
