Sneakerheads probably remember the Supreme x Air Jordan 5. Over the years, Supreme has collaborated with numerous footwear brands, but their most momentous collaboration was arguably the one with Jordan Brand from Fall 2015. Along with the multiple Air Jordan 5 iterations, the collection also included some Supreme x Jordan Brand apparel. However, there were also those who deemed the sneakers over-hyped and were not particularly fond of them. Regardless, probably no one was expecting another camo-covered Air Jordan 5 to arrive. While Supreme played no part in designing it, the never-before-seen Air Jordan 5 featured here appears to be sporting camouflage print.
The Supreme x Air Jordan 5 iterations were definitely not retro releases. Merely touching them was enough to reveal that they were made up of premium materials. The uppers of those sneakers were made up of fine and smooth, high-grade leather with quality finishing, ensuring that the sneakers would last long. Along with the Supreme x “Jumpman” hang tag, the sneakers came with particular Supreme branding, such as the “SUP” printed on their lateral sides and the traditional “23” having been replaced with “94.” Considering that Supreme is a skateboarding brand, this was one of Jordan Brand’s rare skateboarding collaborations, similar to those with Craig Stecyk and Lance Mountain.
So far at least, it does not seem like the Air Jordan 5 seen above has anything to do with Supreme. In fact, this latest and likely upcoming colorway of the model is nothing like those Supreme x Air Jordan releases from 2015, simply because it does not feature enough of the camo print. Predominantly, this sneaker appears to have uppers made up of suede and are dressed up in Grey, while the camouflage print appears over its heel overlays and its tongues. Red also makes an appearance over its inner linings and the signature shark teeth pattern over its all-Grey midsoles, while it is equipped with icy blue, translucent outsoles.
Reportedly, there will also be a GS-exclusive version of this sneaker with a Grey and Pink color scheme, and the exact same color blocking as seen on this particular one. As for a release date or dates, nothing has been announced yet since even the photo above was shared on Instagram by @zsneakerheadz, so keep checking back more more news and updates.
