September’s Air Jordan 5 “El Grito” Celebrates Mexican Independence Day

Jordan Brand is recognizing the growing cultural boom of Mexico by celebrating one of the country’s most significant historical events through a special sneaker release. Honoring the Cry Of Dolores or El Grito de Independencia, this Air Jordan 5 is expected to launch this September around the time of its annual observance on September 16th.

The Cry Of Dolores occurred on September 16th, 1810 when Roman Catholic priest Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla rang his church bell, triggering the Mexican War of Independence. This important date is observed every year; on the eve of September 16th, the President of Mexico re-enacts the Cry Of Dolores at the National Palace of Mexico City by ringing the same bell used by Hidalgo.

Information shared by @zsneakerheadz and @brandon1an have revealed official color specifications of Diffused Taupe, Dark Pony, Sail, and Apple Green, although it’s unclear what arrangement of colors will appear on the Air Jordan 5. Below is just a speculative mock-up of this release and should not be considered an actual representation of the model.
