Air Jordan 5 “Fire Red 3M” Pushed Back to May
Jordan Brand will be celebrating the 30th anniversary of the Air Jordan 5 in 2020 — a year that’s sure to be packed full of high-tongued, padded-ankle heat — including the return of the fan-favorite Air Jordan 5 Fire Red 3M — of which, its release will coincide with another big MJ anniversary; his career-high 69 point clinic against the Cavs.
Originally releasing back in 1990, the OG Air Jordan 5 has privy to many classic MJ moments, including his one-time wear of jersey #12 against Orlando,. But nothing stacks up to his scoring display on March 28th, 1990, where he showed the Cleveland Cavs just how good he can be — and we’re not just talking scoring. Mike was on a tear that day, raking in an insane 18 rebounds (7 offensive), 6 assists, 4 steals, and a block.
Take a peep at the highlights of the game below:
The re-release of the OG Air Jordan 5 Fire Red 3M will release 30 years to the day from the incredible performance, and it’s expected to arrive in it’s true OG form, with 3M reflective tongues, icy outsoles, and Nike Air heel branding — but it’s still unclear if we’ll be getting the PE #23 etching on the side, but we’ll keep you in the loop regarding the specifics. Stay tuned for more, including first looks!
