The Air Jordan 5 is regarded as one of the best shoes from the early 90s. Released in 1990, it was Jumpman's first sneaker of the decade, making a significant impact in the market. While not the most popular silhouette, it still became a pop culture staple, partly due to its appearance in The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air. Over time, the shoe has cemented its place in sneaker history and remains a timeless classic. Its enduring popularity ensures that the Air Jordan 5 will continue to be a beloved choice for many sneaker enthusiasts, no matter what.

Over the last few years, numerous Air Jordan 5 retros have been released, most of which came from the OG color schemes. However, Jordan Brand is now exploring more recent models, like the Air Jordan 5 "Burgundy," which is set to make a comeback this year. The release is just a couple of weekends away, and we already have some official images to share. Despite a few delays and reported release dates, the Air Jordan 5 "Burgundy" finally looks like it has a release date.
