Where to buy, potential release date and more details explored
After working closely with Nike on its Flux Dunk, CLOT is now working hand in hand with Michael Jordan’s shoe brand. The dynamic duo offer a collaboration for the iconic Air Jordan 5 Low silhouette.
Sneakerheads are getting ready to grab your pairs, as the Air Jordan 5 Low sneakers are set to hit stores on May 20. The pairs are expected to be sold through CLOT and Juice stores, both online and offline. Pricing for these freshly developed sneakers is currently unknown, so we’ll have to wait for further updates.
CLOT’s Air Jordan 5 Low Shoes Are Edison Chen’s New Design
Edison Chen and his team revamped their lifestyle silhouette with Oriental-inspired accents in the upper half for their new take. The pair’s striking design reflects a fusion of CLOT’s streetwear aesthetic with Jordan’s footwear expertise.
Using the black background, the shoes beautifully showcase the fine red and green details. The matte black toe box is neatly highlighted by the shiny black knit that will surely catch your eye.
The premium knitted uppers are adorned with delicate red laces loaded with green splotches throughout. Placed under the laces, the greenish TPU tabs are uniquely combined with black fabric at the other end. Additionally, the iconic Jumpman insignia is used to embellish the tongue tags of the new Air Jordans.
Then, the color red is used to highlight the collars, positioned next to the laces. On the back you can see the same Jumpman emblem stitched on the heel tab. However, to make their latest design more exclusive, the Jumpman insignia is added to the left heel only, while CLOT branding is on the right. Graphic-heavy insoles are adorned with co-branded insignia.
To complete, Black midsoles and Green outsoles are incorporated with the most desirable Air units for comfort and support.
