2016 will have Jordan Brand hitting us with their brand new retro remaster initiative that features the use of Nike Air branding on the heel. That means we’re all going to have a chance at scooping up Jordan retros that look and feel just like the originals from back in the day. One of the shoes set to receive the retro remaster initiative is the Air Jordan 5 Black Metallic. The shoe will remain true to form as it will come dressed in a Black, Fire Red, Metallic Silver, and White color scheme. The shoe features an all-black nubuck upper accompanied by the netting placed on the side panels. The metallic colored tongue comes in 3M fashion to really give the shoe some nice pop. Branding comes by way of the Jumpman on the tongue and outsole, and of course the Nike Air on the heel of the shoe to give it the OG look. Additional features on the shoe include the lace locks, the clear icy outsole and the black midsole paired up with the metallic shark teeth that we’re used to seeing on the Jordan 5.
Update: (7/21) Full family sizes will be offered as well, with GS (3.5Y – 7Y), PS (11c – 3Y) and TD (2c – 10c) listed at $160, $80 and $60 respectively.

Andres Carrillo – News: I’ve always wanted a pair of Black/Metallic 5s, but if it means having to spend $220 plus tax I may just have to pass. *Sigh*
Juan Carrillo – News: $220 is too much just because it has Nike branding on it. I’m going to be a lot more selective when picking up Jordans this year. This will not be one of them.
