Michael Jordan’s casual street style in the late ’80s and early ’90s serves as the inspiration for a new pair of retro Air Jordans dropping this weekend.
The Air Jordan 5 “Flight Suit” takes the 1990 sneaker’s original fighter plane inspiration to new heights with an all-red suede style inspired by the tracksuits Jordan wore in his heyday.

This limited-edition look features an all-red suede upper with mesh paneling and the Air Jordan 5’s signature shark tooth midsole design. Other returning Air Jordan 5 hallmarks include a icy translucent outsole and a reflective tongue.
While this “University Red” colorway of the “Flight Suit” Air Jordan 5 is set to drop tomorrow, there’s another similar look on the way. A blue “Flight Pack East” makeup (pictured below) will release September 30.
