Sneakerheads like you got their first look at Jordan Brand’s “International Flight” Pack earlier this month on May 2nd, 2018. The Air Jordan 3 and the Air Jordan 12 that are a part of the pack were among a limited number of select sneakers that were displayed at the Nike World Headquarters. Until recently, it was assumed that these two would be the only sneakers that would be a part of this pack, but that no longer seems to be the case. It seems that upcoming Air Jordan releases 2018 will also include a colorway of the Air Jordan 5, which is a part of this “International Flight” Pack.
The Air Jordan 5 that is a part of the “International Flight” Pack could easily be mistaken for the colorway above, which is actually a different one. Despite sporting the same color combination, the one above happens to be more of a New York Knicks-inspired colorway. Like the one from the pack, this one also has plain Sail-colored uppers, while also featuring Black-, Hyper Royal- and Orange-colored accents, but they appear to different areas of the sneaker. Additionally, its signature side panel mesh netting is also plain to match the uppers and judging from the only photo available, they appear to be lacking the “23” on the sides.
The Air Jordan 5 colorway that is included in the “International” Pack is actually dubbed “International Flight.” First seen near the end of April, it was initially just referred to as “Orange Peel.” Like the above Knicks-inspired colorway above, its uppers are also almost entirely Sail-colored, with Back, Hyper Royal and Orange Peel appearing throughout. Perhaps the most distinctive feature of iteration that sets it apart from the other one is the fact that a Hyper Blue- and Orange Peel-colored pattern can be spotted under its translucent side panel netting Moreover, its insoles also feature Jordan Brand’s “International Flight” branding.
Oddly enough, both of these colorways are scheduled to join upcoming Air Jordan releases 2018 on the same date, which might make you wonder if they are actually the same sneaker. Whatever the case, the available information suggests that they will both be retailing at the same price of $190 on the same date, i.e. September 8th, 2018, likely along with the Air Jordan 3 and Air Jordan 12 from the pack.
