Onitsuka Tiger MEXICO 66: back to the icons
Debuting in 1990, the Air Jordan V was on the court for MJ's fourth scoring title and career-high 69-point game against the Cleveland Cavaliers. Today, the reincarnated Air Jordan 5 Retro Men's Shoe brings back the translucent sole and legendary design that changed the game.
Renowned Nike designer Tinker Hatfield got creative when he dreamt up the Air Jordan V. To symbolize MJ's aerial, penetrating nature on the court, he drew inspiration from the World War II Mustang fighter plane, which later earned the shoe its nickname: The Fighter. For extra flash, Tinker added a reflective tongue, reflective lace locks and a clear outsole.
Hidden within the midsole of the Air Jordan 5 Retro, Nike Air units create lightweight cushioning and comfort in the heel and forefoot. These pressurized air bags compress to lessen the force of impact, and then immediately return to their original shape and volume, ready to take on the next blow.
Since his game-winning shot that brought the National Championship to North Carolina, Michael Jordan has been at the forefront of basketball consciousness. He took the court in 1985 wearing the original Air Jordan I, setting a new standard for performance and style, simultaneously breaking league rules and his opponents' will while capturing the imagination of fans worldwide. Ever evolving, ever at the pinnacle of imagination, the Air Jordan line is the ultimate in basketball footwear.
