Can one pair of sneakers hold a lot of memories? Air Jordan 5 Fire Red is here to say yes! And soon, right after AJ6 DMP, we’re getting a surge of memories and emotions like no other courtesy of Jordan Brand.
Why Do We Love the Air Jordan 5 Fire Red?
Easy, Jordan sneakers hold a huge sentimental value for people who grew up watching Michael Jordan on the court. After all, who doesn’t wanna be like Mike? But the Air Jordan 5 Fire Red actually has even more meaning than that! The man himself wore this pair when he scored a career-high of 69 points against the Cleveland Cavaliers. That was back on March 28, 1990, exactly 30 years ago!
However, Nike added an extra layer of excitement in 2020 on the day “The Last Dance” aired with a sneaker shock drop. The Last Dance is a 10-part documentary about the last year Jordan spent with the Bulls before retirement. Naturally, the Air Jordan 5 Fire Red sold out within minutes!
Air Jordan 5 Fire Red: The Details
The upcoming Jordan 5 Fire Red is the closest we can get in 2020 to the 1990 OGs. The white leather upper highlights the reflective silver tongue and the red Jumpman embroidery on it! In addition to the tongue embroidery, Nike Air is also sewn on the heel area. Finally, a black midsole and translucent outsole seal the deal for us!
Initially, everyone assumed that the release would take place on March 28, 2020, 30 years after the OGs. Then, the release date changed and settled on April 25. However, Nike shocked everyone with a shock drop on April 19, 2020. But don’t worry! You still have a chance to cop yourself a pair!
Release Date: May 2, 2020. (Full family sizing)
Style Code: DA1911-102
Retail Price: $200
Avg. Resale Value: $272
The Resale value may not be much, but this is a pair the money can’t even compare to its actual value to the fans!
Where to Buy the Jordan 5 Fire Red
Ready for the Cop?
If you were busy watching the documentary, which we totally understand, and couldn’t catch that shock drop, better get your bot ready. You don’t wanna miss on the official release day, and the Air Jordan 5 Fire Red will definitely sell out fast!
In the meantime, Jerry Lorenzo’s Nike FOG 1 Triple Black is dropping in a few days and it’s reselling for a good value!
