Last year we saw the Air Jordan Retro 1 get remixed with a satin upper in the ‘Royal’ & ‘Bred’ colorways and then Jordan Brand flipped the switch again this year and did the ‘Shattered Backboard’ colorway for the ladies. Now, a new retro model is getting blessed with a satin upper. The ever popular Air Jordan Retro 5 is shedding its leather upper for a smooth satin vibe that brings a whole new feel to the shoe. The ‘Satin’ Jordan 5’s, a prototype colorway from 1990 that never saw a release, prominently features the Jumpman’s classic color combination of black and red that’s been used on everything from the Jordan 4 to the Jordan 11.
A luxury black satin upper sits on top of the Jordan 5’s P-51 Mustang-inspired two-tone speckled Red and Black midsole. Accents are provided by a 3M tongue with a red embroidered Jumpman, tonal Black Jumpman detailing on the heel, and a translucent outsole. For a final interesting touch, “Recognize” and “Greatness” are embroidered on the inside of the shoe’s tongues, nodding to Michael Jordan’s iconic legacy.
