The Olympics is definitely an inspiration for new Jordans this Summer and Fall of 2016.
Last June, we heard about the upcoming release of the Air Jordan 5 Bronze. As an Olympic shoe to celebrate the Rio Olympics, the Jordan release dates for the Bronze AJ5 seems way off and late for Rio. Why, the pair will make its debut late this September and we all know that the Olympics is way finished for almost a month at its release.
Air Jordan 5 Bronze
Size Run: Full Family Size
Color:Obsidian/White-Metallic Red Bronze-Bright Grape
Release Date:September 24, 2016
Nevertheless, sneakerheads and fans have something to look forward to with the Air Jordan 5 Bronze. This pair of kicks have been made over the months and the end results look better than what any of us can anticipate.
But while the Bronze is so-named, we only see the Bronze accents on its tongue just like with the earlier release of the Gold Tongue. You’d also find the shark teeth design on the midsole dressed in the same color with a speckled design. What’s even more striking about the Air Jordan 5 Bronze is that it has a metallic Obsidian upper instead of the typical black color we see with Jordan pairs. The White midsole also created a nice break for the dark color of the Bronze’s upper while the translucent icy blue outsole added a nice touch finishing the look of the shoes. A perfect combination for fans looking forward to having the pair in their shelves by September.
Up close, Air Jordan 5 opted for a metallic red bronze to pair with the Obsidian upper. A striking but not unusual combination for Jordan Brand. The full Obsidian leather upper has a nice sheen to it making it look shiny when the light hits it. The same color applies to the insole, mesh netting on the side panels of the shoes, and the eyelets. The lace lock are dressed with a clear transparent color. The Bronze color, mentioned earlier, are found on the tongue and the shark teeth accents on the White midsole.
Details include a Jumpman branding on the Bronze tongue. Of course, JB decided to do with Obsidian Blue brandings. Another Jumpman can be found on the heels. This time though, JB had it stitched. Another Jumpman sits on the outsole. The name brand of Air Jordan can also be seen behind the tongue and on the White part of the outsole.
Given that the Air Jordan 5 Bronze will be a retail release on September 24th, getting hold of this pair will be no hardship. But of course, reserving a pair early on wouldn’t hurt. For a price of $190, you can have this baby to add to your collection of new Jordans. Check out other Jordan release dates and new jordans.
