Air Jordan 5

The Air Jordan 5 (V) is the fifth sneaker in the Air Jordan signature line. It debuted in February 1990 during the All-Star Game and was released throughout the rest of the year in four different original colorways — the “Black/Metallic”, “White/Fire Red”, “Fire Red”, and “Grape”.

While the Air Jordan 5 certainly has a range of coveted OG colorways in its family, it has also built up quite the catalog for itself in recent years by venturing into collaborative projects. Football club Paris Saint-Germain put their touch on a duo of colorways, Virgil Abloh created two iterations of the Off-White Air Jordan 5 and A Ma Maniere pulled together their own two colorways late last year.

In 2024, Jordan Brand‘s release of the “Olive” colorway quickly stood out as one of the premier releases for the model. Later down the road, drops like the Jordan 5 “Black Cat” and the recently unveiled Jordan 5 “Reverse Metallic” are sure to command major attention.

Much the same way the Air Jordan 4 is currently in the spotlight, receiving a ton of release love to celebrate its 35th anniversary, the Air Jordan 5 will be a major focus in 2025. The return of the OG Air Jordan 5 “Metallic” and “Grape” already loom as two of the biggest launches on the horizon.
