Stateside Jordanheads are likely glad that they did not have to head out to a retail store in order to cop a pair from the Supreme x Air Jordan 5 collaboration. The U.S. upcoming jordan releases 2015 of Supreme x Air Jordan 5 took place online and collectors within the nation should definitely be thankful about it. However, sneakerheads in London and Tokyo were not as fortunate since the Supreme x Air Jordan 5 was released in-store in the two cities. Of course, this meant that they had to step out in order to grab a pair and it should not be too hard to imagine what it may have been like.
If sneakerheads recall, 2014 had marked the in-store retail debut of the Supreme x Nike Foamposite in New York City, which turned out to be quite catastrophic due to an overwhelming number of shoppers. In fact, the New York Police Department had to shut down the launch of the sneaker because of all the chaos and commotion. Perhaps Jordan Brand and Supreme’s expecting something similar to occur if the Supreme x Air Jordan 5 actually hit the shelves at Supreme’s Fairfax and Lafayette stores.
Even though the in-store release of the Supreme x Air Jordan 5 was cancelled in the United States, Supreme London and Supreme Tokyo still had the collaboration up on retail. As usual, countless numbers of sneakerheads camped and lined outside at the Supreme locations in both cities, but luckily nothing got out of hand. Nonetheless, stateside Jordanheads who have taken a look at these photos are probably feeling relieved that they did not have to do the same.
Thus, the highly anticipated Jordan release of the Supreme x Air Jordan 5 collaboration has finally happened. Whether overseas or stateside, Jordanheads would not want to miss the opportunity of getting their hands on kicks from a special collaboration like this one.
