Golden Highlights On The Air Jordan 5 Olympic
By Renz Ofiaza
In recognition of the 2016 Summer Olympics, which will be held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, a special variation of the Air Jordan 5 has been created to somewhat evoke the spirit.
Flaunting a pristine white leather upper, complementing accents of black adorn the midsole and inner lining, while the theme is encapsulated with metallic gold implemented on the tongue and jagged component across its sole unit to reflect the gold medals given in the ceremonies.
Additional design details consists of the signature netting overlay on its quarter panels, goldish lace locks and branding located on the heel and tongue label.
All adhered atop an icy translucent outsole, you can find this this model at select JB and Nike accounts on Saturday, August 13th for a retail price tag of $190.
I’m a fan of the silhouette in general. I really like the execution on this pair. I’m biased towards the clean upper and how the gold accents are subtle.
