JORDAN RETRO 5 ‘BLUE SUEDE’ – SEPT. 30 AT 10 AM ET

9.29 Jordan Retro 5

The Air Jordan line has always been focused on flight. The iconic AJ 5 took that idea to the next level by taking inspiration from WWII fighter plans to create the shoe’s distinct design lines. Jordan continued that theme with the classic flight suits from that same era, and that’s where the Retro 5 ‘Blue Suede’ colorway comes from. The newest Retro 5 connects Jordan’s focus on flight with a historic apparel piece to deliver a style that truly stands out. Men’s $189.99, Grade School $139.99.
