The Nike Air Jordan V has been iconic in the global streetwear scene since it first hit retails in 1990. The importance of the Jordan V is understood and respected around the world, from LA to Hong Kong to London throughout 26 years, people cannot get enough of the Jordan V. Since the sneakers inception, Nike/Jordan have constantly been reenvisioning and updating the V with versatile colours and textures, however, this time, Nike are bringing back an OG, the 'Black Metallic' V which dates back to the birth year of the V and has long been sought after ever since.
The Jordan V OG 'Black Metallic' has the potential for Jordan release of 2016 so far. Nike have achieved this via matching the OG specifications, with a slick combination of stealthy tones contrasted with vibrant metallic and fire red accents.
The sneaker itself is constructed with black nubuck uppers, and features the traditional translucent mesh side panel on each sneaker, keeping this update as recognisable as the OG. The finishing touches come in the form of 3M materials featuring on the tongue tab, black paint speckles detailing the metallic sole accents as well as an icy translucent rubberized outsole.
Beside this, sneaker heads everywhere are rejoicing thanks to this sneaker going back to the roots and adorning Nike Air branding on the rear heel rather than the typical 'Jumpman' branding.
The Nike Air Jordan V 'Metallic' will launch TOMORROW 08:00am 23/07/16 (GMT).
