Jordan Brand ditches the traditional Olympic look.
Fans of gold sneakers are in luck, because Jordan Brand has designed a version of the Air Jordan 5 prominently featuring metallic gold on the tongue. The Air Jordan 5 hasn’t been getting too much love in 2016, so it’s good to see at least one pair is on the way this year.
Officially called the Air Jordan 5 Retro “Olympic,” Jordan Brand differentiates this Olympic sneaker from its many others by staying monochromatic. No traces of blue or red appear, as the upper is predominantly white with a black midsole. The tongue is a a metallic gold, with gold also appearing as an accent on the midsole. Despite disappearing from a few future retros, the blue icy sole is still present on this Air Jordan 5.
The release date for the Air Jordan 5 “Olympic” is set for August 13, and will retail for $190. What’s your take on these?
