Back when 2015 had just arrived, several photos of a brand new Air Jordan 5 colorway had surfaced on the Internet. Over the past few months, Jordanheads have witnessed more new information and photos create hype about this Air Jordan 5 rendition, which features an peculiar combination of hues, namely Black, Infrared 23, Light Poison Green and White. The colorway which is being referred to as the Air Jordan 5 Poison Green has actually been officially dubbed “Space Jam” and one of the upcoming Jordan release dates 2015 has already been chosen for its debut.
Space Jam is an animated/live action film that definitely holds a special place in the hearts and minds of Jordanheads because of the impact it has made on sneakers, especially Air Jordan sneakers. After all, Michael Jordan himself starred in the film and ever since watching the film, innumerable Jordanheads wondered if they would ever be able to cop the Air Jordan 11 PE sneakers that MJ had worn in Space Jam. Fortunately, they only had to wait for a couple of years until the Air Jordan 11 “Space Jam” officially hit the shelves. 20 years have passed since the retail debut of the Air Jordan 11 “Space Jam” and now this “Space Jam” colorway of the AJ5, also being called the Air Jordan 5 Poison Green, will arrive at retailers a month or so later.
This Air Jordan 5 iteration is nothing like the Air Jordan 11 from twenty years ago because it sports it sports far more a 90s aesthetic than the AJ 11 “Space Jam” ever did. White leather has been used for the base of this sneaker, but the other hues like Black, Infrared 23 and Light Poison Green have also been added into the mix of the color scheme. Both the midsole and tongue (made from 3M Reflective material) of this sneaker feature speckles, while the side of the upper includes black plastic netting. The Infrared 23 hue can also be spotted on the Jumpman logos while a blue translucent outsole adds the finishing touch.
Even though the Air Jordan 5 Poison Green is not technically a remastered retro, Jordan Brand has still included it in their Remastered series, so Jordanheads (including 23 is Back readers) should keep this mind. They should also start saving $190 in the coming two months, since June 6th is one of the Jordan release dates 2015 that has been announced by Jordan Brand for this pair to hit the shelves.
