Air Jordan 5 Retro

Varsity Maize, Orange & Purple
$245
The left shoe is red, like the ‘Raging Bull’, and branded with the medallion from the ‘Shanghai’, while the right’s golden yellow and abstract 23 is all ‘Tokyo’.

When brands dip into their archives for inspiration, they’ll usually call back to one, maybe two past releases on a new sneaker. Not Nike Jordan, though — for this Air Jordan 5, aptly named ‘What The?’, eight iconic colourways are referenced.

The suede uppers are mismatching in both colour and embroidery — the left shoe is red, like the ‘Raging Bull’, and branded with the medallion from the ‘Shanghai’, while the right’s golden yellow and abstract 23 is all ‘Tokyo’. Vibrant graphic liners and colour-blocked soles are taken straight from the ‘Bel-Air’, ‘Laser’ and ‘Quai 54’, while ‘Green Bean’ and ‘Olive’ lend acid green and neon orange, respectively, to silhouette the Jumpman on the model’s signature reflective tongue.
