When you think of Nike's innovative evolution and the redefinition of basketball shoes, the Air Jordan 5 undoubtedly stands out. First released in 1990, the Air Jordan 5 has become an icon in sneaker culture and continues to receive new renditions throughout the year. As part of Jordan Brand's Summer 2024 lineup, the Jordan 5 will launch in a new SE edition with a “Sail” colorway.
Given its name, the Air Jordan 5 Retro SE "Sail" is expected to feature a sail-based colorway. The palette also includes black, light orewood brown, and coconut milk. Though official images have not been released, our speculative mockup anticipates an all-leather upper, further complemented by standard AJ 5 details. These include TPU eyestays, a plastic cage on both the tongue and midfoot, and a 3M reflective tongue. Underneath, the design features a coconut milk and black midsole, boasting an exposed Air unit in the heel. Black hits of the characteristic shark teeth are positioned near the toe. A semi-translucent icy blue, black, and light orewood brown rubber outsole is expected to complete this new release. While exact color placement and materials are unknown, this new AJ 5's arrangement should align with the classics based on its colorway description and the information we have obtained.
The Air Jordan 5 Retro SE Sail will release on April 20, 2024 through Nike and select Jordan Brand retailers online and in-store. Available in men's and grade school sizes, the retail price is set at $210 and $160, respectively.
