Share This Page: Air Jordan 5 Retro "Metallic Silver" The Air Jordan 5 “White/Metallic” was originally released in 1990, and this is the first time it’s been released since it retroed in 2009. When Tinker Hatfield designed this sneaker for Michael Jordan, he drew inspiration from the World War 2 Mustang Fighter Plane, as evidenced by the jagged shark teeth shapes on the midsole, which point forward instead of backward to allude to Mike’s aggressive style. This version of the AJ 5 features a white premium leather upper with silver accents around the silhouette. The sneaker features an Air Max unit in the heel for cushioning and speckled midsole. The 3M tongue surrounds the black Jumpman logo, and Jordan’s number ‘23’ is stitched in to the heel in silver while an icy outsole finishes the kick off. The AJ5’s are only available in stores Saturday, April 4, so check with your local City Gear to cop a pain in men’s at $190, grade schoolers at $140, pre-schoolers at $80 and toddlers at $60.
