The Air Jordan 5 Retro “Bluebird” (W) was made exclusively for the ladies. Another women’s edition, they come in a clean ice, blue graphite and metallic silver colorway. Inspired by bluebird days, this pair features various shades of blue throughout the entire sneaker.

A fabric lining and metallic silver accents on the midsole complete the look.
The Air Jordan 5 made its debut in 1990. It was the third signature sneaker of Michael Jordan created by Tinker Hatfield. Drawing inspiration from WWII fighter planes, the sneaker features shark teeth detailing on the midsole and a visible Air unit in the heel. Lacelocks were also an additional feature that debuted with the AJ 5, used to provide extra lockdown if needed. After His Airness walked away from the game for a second time, Jordan Brand decided to begin its retro line. The Air Jordan 5 was the second silhouette retroed, which is a line that continues to release to this day.
The Air Jordan 5 Retro Bluebird W is a part of Jordan Brand’s Holiday 2021 footwear collection, releasing on October 7th, 2021. This sneaker will launch via Nike & select stores for a retail price of $190, available exclusively in women’s sizing.
