Trophy Room is set to launch their special Air Jordan 5 collaboration this weekend, and ahead of the release founder Marcus Jordan has shared the inspiration behind the shoe’s unique design and color scheme: his father Michael Jordan’s trophy room, an important part of the house he grew up in. The shoe’s ice blue, sail, and red palette present a triumphant look, one that’s accented by subtle gold hits. Plenty of special details are present as well, with a “5” replacing the regular “23” hit on the left shoe’s lateral side alongside a Trophy Room graphic on the heel, while the right shoe’s original branding remains intact. Cork insoles and hardwood-themed outsoles provide extra premium flair, each pair has an x/7,000 graphic on the sockliner, nodding to their limited run, and they also come wrapped in a plastic sheath inspired by the estate’s famous gate. An elegant dustbag and box round off the packaging. The younger Jordan also designed a special red suede pair for Trophy Room’s friends and family, kept to a mere 223 units that won’t see a retail release. However, the aforementioned “Ice Blue” pair will release Saturday, May 18th for $200 USD at Celine Orlando, and will also arrive on the Trophy Room webstore that same day. Get your most detailed look at both pairs below, and prepare yourself for the madness that’s sure to ensue this weekend.
