Many music industry giants are sneakerheads, and one name that immediately catches the eye is pop singer, record producer and rapper DJ Khaled.
The music mogul previously collaborated with the Jumpman label to produce an Air Jordan 3 iteration with friends and family. However, this time the singer will be involved in a much larger collaboration for four exclusive pairs alongside a clothing collection.
Two pairs from the collection, namely the “Polar” and “Court Purple” colorways, have been designated as a Friend and Family exclusive. The other two colorways, “Sail” and the bold “Crimson Bliss”, are expected to be sold to the public.
Both sneakers reimagine the Air Jordan 5 in Easter-appropriate colorways. Sneaker leak pages @zsneakerheads and @privateselection have taken to Instagram to review the upcoming colorways.
The uppers in both colorways are crafted from premium leather materials, featuring striking pastel colorways. The collection pieces from the collaboration consist of DJ Khaled’s signature branding with “WE THE BEST” text striking on the left shoe heel of each colorway. A similar mark also marks the semi-translucent outsoles under the foot of the right shoe.
The first offering that will be made public is the Sail colorway. The colorway comes dressed in the Sail/Washed Yellow/Violet Star color scheme, emphasizing purple, blue and silver accents.
The titular immaculate hue dominates the upper, while Light Blue and Purple accents appear on the midsoles. The silver tab adds solid contrast and flair to the otherwise muted color scheme.
The second offering is the Crimson Bliss colorway, dressed in a Crimson Bliss/Leche Blue/Sail color scheme. The shoe focuses on peachy orange, cream, and silver blue hues.
The titular color dominates the leather builder’s upper, while the Blue color is complemented along the midsole to provide contrast. The silver tabs seem to add flair to the design.
Both shoes feature “WE THE BEST” and “Nike Air” logos on the heel in a mismatched pattern. The inner liner and sock liners are made of quilted satin for comfort.
Adding more personal touches, DJ Khaled’s “Keep” and “Going” labels arrive on the inner linings of the tongues in a mismatched pattern. Finally, the translucent lace closures complete the design of the shoe.
Although not yet confirmed by labels, according to the Sole Retriever sneaker page, both shoes will retail for $225. The DJ Khaled x Air Jordan 5 “We The Best” shoe collection is set to release on the official Nike SNKRS e-commerce site by the end of the year.
