Jordan Brand announced yesterday its first-ever project with a soccer club, Paris Saint-Germain. The project boasts a collection of footwear including the Air Jordan 1, Air Jordan 5, Nike Phantom and Mercurial cleats, as well as apparel.
And it looks like there is another iteration of the Air Jordan 5, not part of the linup revealed yesterday, that won’t see a release to the public.
Differentiating the retail version from this friends-and-family exclusive Air Jordan 5, the upper replaces the black nubuck with a clean white leather. Similar PSG-inspired details are present, which are seen on the netting, tongue, eyelets, black laces and midsole, and embroidered co-branding on the heel tab.
Replacing the traditional 23 stitching on the lateral sides is the number 75, a nod to the Paris postal codes.
“Jordan Brand and Paris Saint-Germain share a distinct position in sport and style, so to partner with the club is a natural fit,” basketball icon Michael Jordan said in a statement released yesterday.
