Established in 2015, Michael Jordan’s WINGS program has gifted full college scholarships to over 200 high school seniors. Jordan has long been open about the impact his teachers and education have had on his success on the basketball court and beyond — and WINGS is his way of paying that positive impact forwards. As to be expected from any of Jordan’s philanthropic ventures, there have been some special shoes in the past — with both a special WINGS program Air Jordan 1 and Air Jordan 12 releasing — and now the third Jordan sneaker to receive a WINGS makeover is the Air Jordan 5. The special shoes feature a cornucopia of unique hand-drawn graphics created by students in the program, and a light mint green provides pops of color on the midsole, quarter panel’s plastic netting, and lace lock. For a special finishing touch, the quarter panel also boasts a special wings-style graphic in place of the standard perforations. Enjoy a full set of official images below, and look for these scholastic AJ5s to release September 29th.
