In August 2013, the Air Jordan 5 “Fire Red” made a comeback, trading the reflective tongue for a black one. It flaunts a white leather upper with fire red accents and an embroidered “23” on the ankle.

The Air Jordan 9 OG “Space Jam” returned in December 2016, marking the 20th anniversary of the movie. It recreates the shoes taken by Daffy Duck and Bugs Bunny in the film, which Jordan later wore during training. With a black and white design accented by True Red branding, especially on the heel, it captures the essence of the movie.
