Throughout 2021, Jordan Brand have focused their attention on re-issuing familiar favourites and some of the most unforgettable colourways in the sneakers history such as the Air Jordan 3 “Cool Grey” and we’ve even got the upcoming release of the Air Jordan 4 “Lightning” on the schedule to look forward to. Sneakerheads who are familiar with the Air Jordan line- up will recognise the “Oreo” colourway which dropped back in 2013 during a Black Friday shopping frenzy, and this must-have Air Jordan 5 has been added to the list of scheduled releases in full family sizing!
As the name suggests, these sneakers opt for a monochrome black-and-white aesthetic, however there’s also a sneaky addition of cool grey too that helps break up an otherwise familiar design. Known for its versatility, the “Oreo” colourway managed to move over 500,000 units back in 2013 which only sets the bar high for this upcoming 2021 re-issue. The upper is wrapped in black suede which is donned in a shade so dark that it resembles vantablack. Opting for bright trims and white speckled prints on a black backdrop helps bring these kicks to life and the outsole contrasts the above nicely in an icy blue shade. As an Air Jordan 5, this silhouette wouldn’t be complete without the Jumpman symbols which feature nicely on the heel and tongue in an embroidered fashion.
The Air Jordan 5 “Oreo” was one of 2013’s best-selling colourways which means that the competition is expected to be fierce and retailers are preparing for a fast sell-out once these sneakers hit the shelves on release day. Available in a full family sizing, including grade school sizes from Finish Line, these simple yet stylish babies are a must-have addition to your rotation. They’re scheduled to release on August 25th so there’s no time like the present to start putting preparations in order!
When sneakers are re-issued or restocked then every sneakerhead gets a second opportunity to cop a pair of kicks that may have been absent from the market for years. These rare beauties don’t come around often, however there’s no doubt that you’ll find them on the resale market after release day too so it’s not all doom and gloom if retailers run out of stock!
