First rumored in November 2020, the Air Jordan 5 “Shattered Backboard” has officially been confirmed for an October 2nd release.

Laden in a “Sail” tone, the upcoming sneakers reimagine Tinker Hatfield’s iconic design from 1990 with textile and exposed foam across the mid-foot, collar and heel. Leather paneling covers the remainder of the Jordans‘ uppers, save for the silhouette’s signature profile windows. Reflective “Metallic Silver” takes over the top of the tongue, while hits of “Black” play a supporting role across the entirety of the pair. “Orange Blaze” arguably steals the show as it animates Jumpman logos throughout the upper, as well as the bulk of the midsole. Lastly, the outsole’s semi-translucent finish indulges in a slightly-yellowed makeup that both complements the upper’s off-white look and delivers an “aged” aesthetic.

Enjoy official images of the Jordan 5 retro here below, and find pairs arriving to Nike SNKRS on October 2nd.

Elsewhere under the NIKE, Inc. banner, the Louis Vuitton Nike Air Force 1 collection is scheduled to drop during Spring/Summer 2022.
