Rukawa Maple Upper Foot
Air Jordan 5 Appearance features: "Mustang" fighter shark teeth, the first crystal transparent rubber sole, 3M reflective tongue
Air Jordan 5 Historical background: In the 1989-90 season, Jordan 5 Sneakers won the fourth scoring honor and created a career-high 69 points in the game against the Cleveland Cavaliers. But in the Eastern Conference Finals, the Bulls still lost to the Pistons in seven fierce battles.
Air Jordan 5 Sneaker introduction: AJ5 uses transparent rubber material on the sole for the first time, which is also the material used in the future shoes in the movie "Back to the Future 2", which can exert a high degree of grip. In order to promote lightweight sports Air Jordan 5 shoes, a mesh cloth surface is used to replace the leather surface on the side of the shoe, and for the first time an air cushion is added to the curved groove of the forefoot to increase its flexibility.
The Air Jordan 5, inspired by the P-51 Mustang fighter, not only presents the iconic shark coating on the midsole of the forefoot, but also opens a precedent for the design of pseudo-material. The subsequent AJ15 and AJ22 also drew inspiration from the X-15 aircraft and the F22 "Raptor" fighter, and achieved unique classic designs.
