The Off-White x Air Jordan 5 is Virgil Abloh’s rendition of Michael Jordan’s fifth signature shoe that incorporates the former’s deconstructed design ethos. The NBA All-Star Weekend 2020 release omits the Jordan 5’s traditional leather construction for a light grey synthetic, semi-translucent material. Circular designs with Abloh’s signature Nike branding motif can be found on the inside of each shoe over the midfoot netting.
For the first time ever on a non-original Air Jordan 5 colorway, embroidered Nike Air branding appears on the heel. White “23” detailing covers the heel near the midsole and a fiery red Jumpman covers the 3M-reflective tongue.
A pre-yellowed outsole gives the Off-White Jordan 5 the already-worn-in vibe that Abloh often prefers to include on his collaborations with both Nike and Jordan Brand.
