When you hear the word “premium” when it comes to AJ releases, you can already expect a design that is going to blow you off. The Air Jordan 5 Premium more than meets expectations with its triple black design that is obviously built for the guy’s guy shoe lover.
Air Jordan 5 Premium Triple Black
Size Run: Mens
Style Code: 881432-010
Release Date: July 8, 2017
The official name for these kicks is triple black and obviously, the colors used are black, black, and black. It sounds funny on paper, but once you see exactly what is being offered with this Air Jordan 5 release, you might well be one of the many who falls in line to get these kicks as soon as they are released.
There’s not much to be said for color since the whole body of the shoes makes use of the black shading. It’s really the design that makes the kicks stand out with a layering approach that adds some depth into the overall design. Vertical lines can be seen along the quarter panel and the laces used are basic black and rounded. The tongue follows the same dark color but with a lined pattern that creates an optical illusion for the kicks. On the center of the tongue is the unmistakable Jumpman logo, this one stamped onto the material so that it follows the same color. In all honesty, you can’t easily see the Jumpman logo unless you look at the kicks really closely.
Really, the only light portion of these kicks would be the outsole with the translucent decor. It’s a good choice so that there’s nothing that distracts from the powerful look of the shoes.
The soles follow the same dark color. From the back, you can see another Jumpman logo, this one slightly raised so that you can quickly see it against the equally black background.
Product Release and Price
The shoes are set for a July 8m, 2017 release which gives you some time to decide whether you want them in your collection or not. Being a classic from all angles, the shoes will sell for $400 once it hits the stores. It’s a little pricey considering the cost of previous AJ releases, but let’s not forget the premium quality of this brand new product.
All in all, the Air Jordan 5 Premium Triple Black makes for an excellent purchase if you’re looking for something designed to last for a really long time. With an overall classic look, these are the kind of shoes you can wear practically anywhere and know that you’d look good no matter what.
