What The Jordan 5 Drops Polar Opposite Pairs in Multicolor

By November 3, 2020Jordan

WHAT THE JORDAN 5 AIO FEATIf you look into Nike’s “What The” history, you’ll realize that it was first made popular by the Nike SB Dunk. Then the mashup trend hit  Nike NBA player collaborations. Such as Nike LeBron, Nike Kobe, and Nike Kyrie or Kybrid. It is not a popular concept among Air Jordans, which adopt clean colorways over all-over-the-place mashups. Look at things from the outside and you’ll realize that the Air Jordan 1 and Nike Dunk are not that different in structure. But you don’t see a Jordan 1 classic taking after a multicolor Dunk with a crazy backstory. That’s where the line is drawn. Makes sense why the latest Jordan 4 What The looks like a minimalist tribute to the popular Jordan 4 colorways. Rather than a What The sneaker. However, the upcoming What The Jordan 5 is cranking it up a notch in multicolor. It’s clear the J-team is giving in to its crazy side in 2020.

What The Jordan 5: Serene Tokyo Meets Raging Chicago Bull

It’s uncanny how brands without the slightest association can trigger flashbacks! What caused this epiphany? Well, the What The Jordan 5 seems to be following the same mashup concept as the Sean Wotherspoon ASICS Gel Lyte 3. Sean’s left pair represents “Tokyo at Dusk” and the right pair “Bright LA Hues.” Which means that the left pair displays a dark purple/red colorway and the right pair takes on a blue skyed desert.

This What The Jordan 5 follows a similar inspiration. Whereby the right pair displays “Tokyo vibes” primarily in yellow. Which we’ve previously seen on the popular Jordan 5 Tokyo of 2011. And the left pair takes on a full Chicago Bull color theme. Basically flying back and forth between Japan and the States. Only to realize that one country per pair is not so bad compared to jet lag. The Tokyo pair takes on a Varsity Maize colorway and the Chicago pair remains loyal to its fierce legacy. Both pairs share a silver tongue (reminiscent of the Jordan 5 Fire Red) and Ghost Green accents on their midsoles. Although this Jordan 5 follows the What The concept elegantly, the next part is what pushed it over the edge!

WHAT THE JORDAN 5 2020Release Date: 7 November (EU) 12 November (US)

What The Jordan 5 Insoles: From Bel Air to Paris!

The irresistible feature on the What The Jordan 5 is its referential insoles. The Varsity Maize “Tokyo” pair takes on the Jordan Quai 54 pattern. Whereas the Chicago pair wears up the iconic costume of the star who promoted the Jordan 5 model: The Prince of Bel Air! And insanely cool mashup of Jordan identities and cultures. It’s valued at an average $344 on StockX at the moment. And since we’re ones to cop kicks at retail, we’re glad to inform you that it will be dropping on Footsites [Champs, Footaction, Foot Locker, Eastbay] and other Jordan retailers.
