A revival brewing for far too long, the Air Jordan 5 “Fire Red” is slowly arriving closer and closer to its 2020 release date, and with many a fellow peer set to drop alongside, it’s likely to be a great year (fingers crossed). Featuring every one of its most signature accents in a form true to retro likeness, the pair crafts with close homage just as the 1985 editions of the AJ1 are set to do. However, these hold a much more special place for dedicated fans as this is the first appearance of this magnitude to come out since 1999, a fitting celebration for the silhouette’s upcoming 30th anniversary. Aesthetics-wise, the constructions are quite mint overall as they essentially reverse the yellow of everyone’s personal pair for perfectly white cages and icy blue tread. Blacks on the midsole adorn with the spiked print right near the forefoot, matching the same bright red accents on the top half’s toggle, Jumpman insignia, and lining. The reflective top of the tongue creates a neutral yet complimenting contrast to the colorless dye of the smooth leather constructions, finishing strong with Nike Air right on the heel.
Grab a detailed look at the forthcoming take right here, and sit tight for its release at select retailers and Nike SNKRS on what is presumed to be March 28th, 2020.
