1992 was the last year that both the Summer and Winter Olympic Games were held in the same year, the cold-weather sports moved to the other even-numbered years with the summer stuff staying put. Had that change been done before the ’92 Games and not after, and had it been the ‘OG’-lympics that were moved, we might be discussing the above pictured model as the ‘Olympic’ Air Jordan V Retro. That tag belongs to the AJ7, of course, but this in no way diminishes the patriotic vibe of the latest AJ5, and in fact helps to add a bit of familiarity despite the fact this is a brand new release. It’s perfectly timed for the 4th of July holiday, the ‘Independence Day’ Air Jordan 5 among the biggest releases during a chock-full three-day weekend, and you’ll be able to get them on Saturday just in time to wear to the various festivities thanks to Jordan Brand retailers like Extra Butter, or just skip the wait and grab yours right now on eBay.
