Michael Jordan was at the peak of his career back in the 90s and courtesy of the G.O.A.T., the Chicago Bulls managed to achieve the franchise’s best overall record that season. Even Michael Jordan’s performance throughout that season was among his finest, but the most noteworthy ones were those during which the Chicago Bulls faced the Cleveland Cavaliers. In fact, Michael Jordan even scored the highest score of his career, a total of 69 points. 1990 was also the year in which Jordan Brand released the Air Jordan 5. The latest iteration of Air Jordan 5 that the Jumpman will soon drop is a GS version.
Throughout 1990, Michael Jordan even collected numerous awards, such as the NBA Scoring Title. He also got nominated by various awards, such as the All-Defensive Player, All-Star team, and the First Team All NBA award. That is why 1990 was the ideal time for Jordan Brand to debut the Air Jordan 5, considering that Michael Jordan was unmatched in his career at that point. Together with the Air Jordan 5, Michael Jordan’s career progressed to far greater heights over the coming years. Even though Michael Jordan has long retired, the Air Jordan 5 continues to arrive, this time in a GS “Wolf Grey” colorway.
The photos of this GS-exclusive Air Jordan 5 “Wolf Grey” that are featured here were posted by Renarts.com. The premium leather uppers of the sneaker appear to be quite simple and subtle, mainly because of its seemingly monochromatic color scheme that predominantly consists of Wolf Grey. In order to ensure that this rendition also sports some contrasting detailing, the inner linings, laces, midsoles and tongues are all covered in Black. Keeping the unique appearance of this silhouette intact, it is also equipped with icy outsoles and side panel netting, while the shark teeth accents and speckles can also be spotted over the midsoles.
Despite its simplicity, plenty of sneakerheads likely find it worth copping, but only the small-footed junior Jordanheads will be able to actually wear this sneaker. This Air Jordan 5 GS “Wolf Grey” is set to retail at a price of $140 on August 20th at specific Jordan Brand and Nike retailers.
