First released in 1990, the AIR JORDAN 5 is known as the fifth signature performance shoe of Michael Jordan. At that time the Chicago Bulls were exposed to the utter dominance from the Detroit Pistons. Not even 47 points from MJ were enough to knock them down – too little, too late. That also meant they had to face elimination the third time straight on hand of the Bad Boys featuring Isiah Thomas and Dennis Rodman. The final stop: Eastern Conference Finals. But they would get their redemption eventually. Six times to be exact.

Inspired by the „Mustang“ combat aircraft, innovative features particularly in style along with performance ability debuted. Designed by Nike-designing legend Tinker Hatfield, a lot of hints deliberately featured, especially on the midsole's „teeth“. Mesh windows on the shoe's side provide for an amazing breathability while the AJ V's tongue is reflective. Furthermore the transparent rubber outsole had its first appearance on a Jordan shoe. Also debuting, the lace lock-system awarded the Jordan signature its unique and recognizable look. Apart from the outward appearance, the lock-system also fulfilled functional purposes. Through lace fixation a stable footing is ensured.

All these attributes are parts of the successful story the Air Jordan 5 wrote. Successful, but not finished in any means – that always has been a MJ certified attitude. To work beyond perfection. That is why the JORDAN BRAND keeps releasing new collections, new colorways, paired with new ideas. The latest one: „Dunk From Above“! Once again inspired by the one and only Michael Jordan. Based on his seemingly endless hangtime and thunderous dunks this collection wisely selects appropriate color shades and materials, connected to its name. In the AJ V's case the white leather upper along with blue highlights on the sidepanel, tongue and outsole refers to the sky. A golden lace-lock and the midsole's, as well, golden shark teeth put the icing on the cake. Jumpman, Jumpman, that boy's up to something!

Michael Jordan 1990: 47 points vs Pistons (Game 3)

Spike Lee as Mars Blackmon Nike Air Jordan 5 Commercial

Brand information: jordan

In the game of basketball Michael Jordan is a god. Number 23 of the Chicago Bulls has set the bar extremely high: His six championship rings, five mvp`s, numerous scoring titles, not to mention his on-court heroics and breathtaking dunks, are the stuff legends are made of. The Jordan Brand aspires to achieve boss status as well. And it is well on its way.
In Jordan`s rookie campaign, it didn`t take the basketball world long to realize who they were dealing with. He was not only a fascinating athlete, his charismatic smile and pleasant personality cast a spell over people – Michael Jordan had perfect commercial appeal. Nike recognized that as well. The brand needed a kick-starter and got a rocket boost in Jordan.
While the Air Jordan 1 and 2 sold well – and vaulted Nike from middle of the pack to the top of the sneaker world – the Air Jordan 3 went supersonic. Thanks to new head designer Tinker Hatfield the sneaker has become a legend in its own right. The jumpman logo was introduced with the 3, as well as a visible air cushion in its sole. Experts call the 3 the best basketball sneaker ever made, even to this day. A whole line of legendary commercials starring famous director Spike Lee as Mars Blackmon („It`s gotta be the shoes“) made the hype complete.

Air Jordan – from hype to frenzy

In the 90s the hype evolved into a frenzy: Michael Jordan shattered records, was feared by opponents on the court and charmed fans off of it. MJ became more famous than the Beatles and the president combined and people went crazy over his signature sneakers. To this day, the madness continues: When a new Jordan is released – no matter if re-release, retro or special edition – fans of the Jordan Brand camp out in front of sneaker stores for days. The shoes are sold out in seconds and are later sold online for crazy rates.
The Jordan Brand has become so large that Nike decided to make it its own sub-division. In 1997 the time had come: The Air Jordan 18 was the first independent release of the Jordan Brand, the rest is history …
