Air Jordan 5 ‘Five for All’ Collection Honors MJ’s Spirit of Flight

Air Jordan 5 Five for Fall Collection

Inspired by Michael Jordan’s high flying dunks, the Air Jordan line is deeply rooted in the idea of flight. First it was spelled out on the Air Jordan 4 tongue, and then it inspired the entire design of the 5. Taking the flight inspiration up a notch up from its predecessor, the 5 channeled WWII fighter planes. From the shark-mouth art to its reflective tongue and exaggerated lace locks, the 5 was the perfect complement to Jordan’s tenacious style of play.

While the Air Jordan 5 quickly became a symbol for attacking the rim on the court, it represented being a different kind of fly off the court. Now, nearly two decades later, the first Air Jordan of the 1990s returns in five new colorways that continue to honor the spirit of flight.

This season, the 5 returns and pays tribute to another trend that Jordan helped pioneer: the flight suit. Made famous during his rookie season, MJ’s iconic flight suits remained a staple throughout his career. Most notably, MJ favored the suits during now iconic photoshoots for the Bred and Royal Air Jordan 1s.
