The All-Star weekend is almost here, and with it come all the cool sneaker releases we’ve been waiting for. One of these kicks is the Off White Air Jordan 5. It’s also part of the Jordan Chicago Creators Collection that supports the Unite movement that Jordan Brand started! But what’s the inspiration behind the kicks that sparked a lot of mixed opinions?
Off White Air Jordan 5: The Design
At first, people were very critical of the kicks. But oddly enough, they were one of the things the more you see, the more you like! The metallic upper features circular holes all over, a technique he’s using in a lot of his designs.
Another interesting additional detail is the pre-yellowed translucent outsole. It got a backlash from a lot of people who love their brand new kicks. However, others who like that “old kicks” look appreciated the yellow soles on the Off White Air Jordan 5!
The Off White Air Jordan 5 will release in full family sizes for AJ5’s 30th anniversary. That way, you can match your outfit with your whole fam! We don’t know whether the number of pairs will be high, but what we do know is that the demand will be sky high!
Release Date: February 15, 2020.
Style Code: CT8480-001
Retail Price: $225
Avg. Resale Value: $1,403
Where to Buy the Off White Air Jordan 5
Unfortunately, sneakerheads have limited options for this release. Footlocker is using the first-come, first-served approach in-store and app reservation for the in-store release. However, you can try copping from Nike US, and Nike EU (UK FR DE NL IT ES).
In order to have a higher chance at one of the most interesting 2020 Air Jordan releases, you need to get yourself a good bot like ANB! And may the odds be ever in your favor!
