The Air Jordan 5 Wings are inspired by Michael Jordan’s legacy of greatness and commitment to education.
Michael Jordan credits his teachers and educators with helping him achieve the confidence and level of greatness that aided him in becoming the greatest basketball player of all time. To give back, MJ started the WINGS Scholarship Program that is meant to build relationships with teachers and mentors with the fundamental belief that “when given the chance, everyone can fly.” In the past, the Jordan Brand has honored this program with prestigious releases and now they have a new release to add to the mix as part of the growing WINGS initiative.
The Air Jordan 5 Wings boasts a white leather upper with an all-over print featuring illustrations of Chicago and its neighborhoods. Each shoe dons a unique print, making every pair one-of-a-kind. Other special details include semi-translucent mint green Wings lacelocks and side panels, which glow in the dark, a 3M reflective tongue tab, embroidered Jumpman logos, a special label in the inner tongue and an icy outsole.
The Air Jordan 5 will retail for $200 and will be available soon.
