From the "Raging Bull" to the Off-White collab, the sneaker community has been blessed with countless hyped AJ5 colorways over the past couple of decades, but none of them come close to the icon that is the Air Jordan 5 "Olive." First released back in 2006, it's considered by many Jumpman fans to be one of the most legendary pairs of all-time. After almost two decades of waiting, it's officially making a comeback.
Originally launched as part of Jordan Brand's lifestyle series (LS), the "Olive" was accompanied with a whole collection of matching clothing. Outfitted in supple suede throughout, it's dipped in a militaristic color palette and highlighted with vibrant orange accents across the sockliner and toggle switch. As with all Air Jordan 5s, the oversized tongue is finished with a 3M reflective finish so you can flex even in low light conditions.
Underfoot, the Nike Air midsole is painted in a complementary green hue, and it's detailed with flames around the sides for a fighter jet-inspired aesthetic. It's then finished with a clear white outsole, finalizing the world-renowned design.
Not much else is known about the Air Jordan 5 "Olive" re-release at this moment in time, but it's expected to go down sometime during Spring 2024. Let us know if you'll be adding these to your rotation next year, and in related news, the Nike Air Foamposite One "Galaxy" is also coming back!
