Supreme x Air Jordan 5 Official Release Date / by Alex Young

Supreme and Air Jordan is an imperial collaboration. Both brands credit the golden era of popular culture, the 1990s, for their success and the history that makes them icons today. Representing different realms of sport, skate and basketball, Supreme and Air Jordan stand as symbols for trendy, observant and proud people accepting of unique lifestyles. Air Jordan 1s and Supreme's "Box Logo" tee forms a crisp, youthful uniform for an absorbent person. These qualities make the Supreme x Air Jordan 5 a mark of creative excellence.

When the sneaker was first designed in 1990 the application of a reflective tongue designed to light up with camera flashes was created to grab attention. Supreme and Air Jordan carry out this pizzazz with three new versions of the AJ 5 done in black, camouflage and white colorways. The icons' branding details the shoes: an underlaid Supreme logo, "94" is embroidered on the heel paying homage to 'Preme's birth year and accents, like 3M hints and a custom hang tag.

Purchase the Supreme x Air Jordan 5 Friday, Oct. 16 online and at Supreme's London location, as well as Saturday, Oct. 17 in Japan. Happy hunting.
