One of the best shoes from the early 90s would have to be the Air Jordan 5. For those who may not know, this was actually Jumpman's first 90s sneaker. Released in 1990, the AJ5 was a fantastic entry into the library. Although it may not be the most popular silhouette, it made its mark. Overall, it is still considered to be a pop culture staple, especially thanks to its inclusion in The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air. At this point, the shoe is never going away, no matter what.

Throughout the last few years, we have gotten a whole bunch of Air Jordan 5 retros. However, many of these retros have come from the OG color schemes. Now, Jordan Brand is thinking about more recent models. For instance, it has become clear that the Air Jordan 5 "Burgundy" will be making a comeback this year. In fact, the release is just a couple of weekends away and we have some official images to share.

Firstly, this shoe is covered in burgundy suede. This burgundy has a great hue to it that almost gives it a neutral vibe. From there, the midsole is also burgundy, although there is an icy blue outsole to break up the monotony. We also get that signature silver 3M tongue here, which is a standout feature of the Air Jordan 5. To top it off, a burgundy Jumpman logo is found in the middle of the tongue.
