In 2016, the original Black/Metallic Silver colorway of the Air Jordan 5 released with the OG Nike Air branding as a nod to the original 1990 release. The shoe came in a buttery Black nubuck upper with Metallic Silver accents, 3M tongues, and embroidered “Nike Air” on the heels.

In 2020, the Air Jordan 5 “Fire Red” officially made its return in the original color blocking. It features a clean White leather build with Red accents, original reflective Silver tongues, Black midsole, icy Blue translucent outsole completed with embroidered “Nike Air” on the heels.
