On-Foot Looks // Air Jordan 5 “Orange Blaze”
It must be challenging for Jordan Brand designers to relentlessly deliver new and varied options of 30-year-old sneakers, many of which whose colorways and materials have seemingly been exhausted by now. Though many can appreciate a few fine tweaks from release to release, it’s a little hard to imagine just how this new Air Jordan 5 “Orange Blaze” AKA “Shattered Backboard” will fare, considering its key adjustment: extended netting at the collar.
A strange move, sure, but it may just work. This mock-up shared by @zSneakerheadz and @SHOF show just how the pair is intended, though a Photoshop representation — in this instance — may not do the actual design justice. Just how the collar will sit, look and feel will be revealed soon through a first look, but until then, you’ll just have to use your imagination. Elsewhere, you can expect a pretty standard delivery — a classic white leather, Black Tongue-blocked construction, with the OG’s red replaces by a warming Total Orange.
Update 12.20.20 // Updated information and imagery for the Air Jordan 5 “Orange Blaze” has been provided by sneaker-sleuth @zSneakerheadz who has updated both the color listing and its blocking. While the featured netting to the collar remains, colors shift from the originally reported white to a subtle sail, while metallic silvers shift to the speckled forefoot teeth and tongue. The source also reported that there may well be a price increase.
