Air Jordan 5 “Wings” – Are We Sure About This?

Share Button

Images of Jordan Brand’s next “Wings” release are surfacing and it seems like quite a departure from the previous iterations. The Air Jordan 5 Retro “Wings” is flooded with features and do-dads that make for an extremely interesting colorway. However the overall look has many sneakerheads questioning if this belongs under the “Wings” moniker.

The Retro 5 Wings has a few features that hammer home the shoes theme. The mesh and lace lock feature feather patterns in stand out detail, and the iconic wingspan silhouette is featured inside the tongue. That seems to be the end of that theme. Departing from the black gold and antique brass look of the Retro 12 and Retro 1 this version is dressed in white with bleached turquoise accents. Where previous wings colorways seemed to emphasize class and luxury, these look more like a kid doodled on their menu in crayons.

The overall look isn’t a complete departure for Jordan, with many Doernbecher releases featuring hand drawn graphics on the upper. If released as a DB 5 these kicks wouldn’t raise an eyebrow. Being placed in line with two premium releases seems to show an overall shift in design. While the fashion industry moves at a lightning pace, Jordan’s have always done well to stick to the fundamentals.

Rather you like the grade-school sketchbook look or not probably won’t be the biggest factor in how well the Retro 5 “Wings” performs. Availability vs cost always drives sales, and more importantly resale, of Jordan Retro releases. With a relative modest $200 price tag, these kicks popularity almost entirely depends on how limited they are. Depending on production, this release is likely to roll out in a QuickStrike fashion. You will have a chance to get your hands on the Jordan Retro 5 Wings later this Summer.
