When the P51 Mustang-inspired Air Jordan 5 first released in 1990, it was an instant hit due to its unique construction, striking style, and MJ’s memorable season — in which he captured both a scoring title and first team All-NBA honors. It’s still just as popular almost three decades later, and now a striking “Satin” colorway — an original 1990 prototype that never dropped — is set to finally come to market. A silky black satin coats the upper, while a reflective tongue and clear midfoot mesh netting provide iconic details. A two-tone speckled red and black midsole add retro contrast that’ll be instantly familiar to any long-time Jordan fan, and a premium icy blue outsole completes the varsity jacket-style look. For a finishing touch of special detailing, the tongue tags swap out their normal Air Jordan patches for “Recognize” on the left shoe and “Greatness” on the right, a salute to the timeless legacy MJ left on the basketball court and in the world of athletic footwear.
