The au courant would know that 2023 will see a slew of Jordan retro releases spread across the year. From the Air Jordan 7 “Chambray”, to the Air Jordan 8 “Playoffs”, to this pair in discussion. First released in 2006, the Air Jordan 5 “Burgundy” will return as it was during its original outing.

Arriving in a full suede construction on the upper, rich burgundy hues make up most of the real estate on these parts. Variance arrives by way of the metallic silver on the tongue, and grey on the sock liner and laces. The Jumpman alternates its skin between burgundy on the crown of the shoe, and grey on the embroidery on the heel. The latter color also appearing on the P-51 Mustang fighter jet-inspired graphic on the midsole.

Its componentry is largely untouched. Whether it be the lace lock toggle, the TPU mesh window on the quarter, or the translucent rubber outsole underfoot, the spirit of the AJ 5 is undisturbed.

The rumor mill has the pair returning on 9th September, 2023 along with a US$200 price tag. Should anything change however, count that we’ll get the word to you, when it gets to us.
