In 2020, Jordan Brand celebrated the 30th Anniversary of the Air Jordan 5, a model that certainly has a range of coveted OG colorways. Two of those includes the “Metallic” and “Grape” releases.
The Air Jordan 5 “Metallic” originally released back in 1990. It features a Black nubuck upper with a reflective 3M tongue, Fire Red accents, Nike Air logo on the heels atop a translucent outsole. The sneaker was retro released in 2000, 2007, 2011, and 2016 (shown below).
The Air Jordan 5 “Grape” made its most recent return in 2013 (shown below), which was one of the original four colorways released in 1990, that also retro’d in 2006. The shoes were worn by Michael Jordan during a Wheaties box cover shoot and by Will Smith on the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. It features a White leather upper with Black, New Emerald, and Grape accents atop a translucent outsole.
