Virgil’s OFF-WHITE x Air Jordan 5 “Sail” Is A Work Of Art

The upcoming OFF-WHITE x Air Jordan 5 “Sail” is definitely worth calling art. In true Virgil Abloh style, these Air Jordans carry the OFF-WHITE deconstructed aesthetic with a hole cut out on the tongue of the left shoe.

On the heel of these Jordans, you will be able to see the “23” branding in red under what seems like a translucent material, matching the Jumpman logo on the reflective tongue. The Nike Air logo is featured at the heel of the shoe in black and it would not be a Virgil Abloh creation without the iconic zip-tie tag attracted to the shoelaces of the shoe.

Pricing and release information are yet to be confirmed, so make sure to keep your eyes peeled for when official information finally drops.
