The Air Jordan 5 was released in February 1990, designed by Tinker Hatfield. Its most distinctive feature is arguably the reflective tongues.
One of the models most iconic colorway is its “Fire Red” makeup. This version of the shoe is from the Countdown Pack that debuted back in 2008. It features all the original elements including a White leather upper, Fire Red accents, Black detailing, Reflective tongues and 23 stitching. But one thing missing was the “Nike Air” branded heels.
In 2013, Jordan Brand re-released the Air Jordan 5 Fire Red, but without its 23 stitching and Nike Air on the heels. Not to be mistaken with the pair that features Black tongues.
