Taking the “Flight” theme that flies strong throughout the history of Jordan Brand, this winter the Air Jordan 15 Retro is reintroduced with the help of two flight jacket colorways of the Air Jordan 5 and Air Jordan 8. Build off the stealth fighter inspiration of the Air Jordan 15, which returns in its original black colorway with red accents from 1999, the Air Jordan 5 and Air Jordan 8 accompany it in the militaristic makeovers.

The Air Jordan 5 Retro takes cues from a P51 flight bomber jacket, featuring a premium Sequoia green nubuck upper with Vachetta Tan leather on the tongues and special “Flight” lace locks. Meanwhile, the Air Jordan 8 in its own Sequoia colorway also features hits of safety orange and incorporates neoprene into the upper’s construction for the first time.

The Air Jordan 15 Retro makes its debut on January 7th, while the Air Jordan 5 and Air Jordan 8 take flight on January 28th and February 11th, respectively.
