Amidst all the Air Jordan releases 2018, it is somewhat rare to see a LeBron 15 pair drawing inspiration from Jordan Brand’s signature line. Earlier this month, Nike launched the #LeBronWatch campaign. As a part of it, LeBron James appeared on the court laced up in special LeBron 15 colorways drawing inspiration from Nike’s illustrious history. These included colorways inspired by the Air Diamond Turf Air Max 95 “Neon,” Air Mowabb, Ken Griffey Jr., and even a Nike shoe box from 1972. Unexpectedly though, LeBron James was recently spotted rocking a LeBron 15 iteration that features the color scheme and detailing of a highly coveted Air Jordan 5 colorway.
Last year back in December, Jordan Brand made an announcement about the second round of their Retro Remaster initiative. Jordan Brand claimed that retro Air Jordan sneakers tend to remind wearers of a particular game or moment from Michael Jordan’s illustrious career. Jordan Brand had already kick started the “remastered” initiative in 2015, so Jordanheads were already quite familiar with it. The main premise of their next Retro Remaster initiative was to bring back the heel Nike Air logo on retro Air Jordan sneakers. The latest sneaker from this initiative is among next month’s Air Jordan releases 2016 and it is the Air Jordan 5 OG ’90 “Black-Metallic Silver.” Continue reading The Jordan 5 OG “Black Metallic” Joins The Remaster Retro Initiative In July

Tinker began designing for Jordan Brand with the Air Jordan 3 and while the Air Jordan 5 is regarded as a modified version of the Air Jordan 4, the fifth model is far advanced. Not only the silhouette of the Air Jordan 5, but its embroidered NIKE AIR logos, reflective tongues and translucent rubber outsoles make this fact quite obvious. The last time the Air Jordan 5 hit the shelves was back in 1999 and now it is scheduled to jordan releases this month too.

Spring has already begun and a few months later it will be summer, so it is not surprising that Jordan Brand is hoping to set fire to the scorching summer heat with a very special release. So far, 2016 has proven to be the year in which age old Air Jordan iterations have been brought back from the vault to receive the new retro remaster treatment. Consequently, the heels of these sneakers once again sported the Nike Air logo when they arrived at retailers. The Air Jordan 5 “Black/Metallic” is one such sneaker that Jordanheads will now be able to add to their collection.
