With the class of 2021 graduating pretty soon, Jordan Brand is out to celebrate the milestone with the Air Jordan 5 Low Wings. We rarely see the low-cut version of the Air Jordan 5, and the concept for this colorway is something worth talking about.
While it is decked in a straightforward black and gold colorway, there is a lot of details with the upper. You get a mix of nylon and soft leather for the upper–which is a rather unusual combination for a sneaker that is positioned as a premium sneaker. Gold accents adorn the Jumpman logo and the 20/21 stitching on the heel. Yes, the stitching does refer to the graduating class of 2021–making it a fitting sneaker to rock for graduation rites (assuming your school allows you to wear sneakers).
To bring in the celebratory details, unique touches include a tassel, a flat Wings hangtag in black, a foil-like branding on the insoles, and a special “Jordan Wings Class of 2021” branding at the back of the tongue.
Of course, this pair isn’t a true Air Jordan 5 without retaining some of the 1990 sneaker’s key design elements: 3M on the tongue, translucent outsoles and side netting, and lacelocks.
Air Jordan 5 Low Wings Release Date and Price
There’s no set release date yet for the Air Jordan 5 Low Wings, though reports say that it should drop sometime in May for $175(~Php 8.5k). The pair is also expected to be available locally via Nike SNKRS and Titan, so stay tuned for their release mechanics.
Oh, and in case you were wondering: this is the second Wings model under the Air Jordan 5 line, as there was a regular-cut Wings model that came out back in 2018. This version has colorful graphics and is pretty rare to find–current StockX prices are pegged at around $400 for this particular sneaker.
