The Air Jordan V will always be one of my favorite sneakers of all time. No, historically, it didn’t represent any great shift in Michael Jordan‘s career–the Bulls lost in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals to the Detroit Piston Bad Boys, the third straight year they’d done that. But in terms of performance and style, it continued the legacy previously built by the Air Jordan III and IV, two perfect silhouettes that helped redefine the sneaker world in everything from style to marketing.
As part of this year’s “Remastered” series from the Jordan Brand, Michael Jordan and the team are releasing a number of new colorways that are dropping with updated materials. At the head of that list is the Air Jordan V, a perfect shoe for the summer when you’re spending a lot of your time out of school and chilling with friends.
Today at Champs Sports marks the release of the “Pro Stars” Air Jordan Retro V, a shoe that was rumored to be inspired by an old 1991 cartoon. Complete with a white leather upper, a speckled midsole of grey and poison green, and Infrared teeth, this sneaker is hitting just in time for the summer when many of us are looking for new white kicks to rock with our latest fits.
This might take us all back in time through its inspiration, but the sneaker is just getting started. Hit the streets this summer with one of the freshest retro releases of 2015.
Here are 5 Reasons to Cop the Air Jordan Retro 5 “Pro Stars.”
