Nike’s Air Jordan 5 SE “Sail” shoes will be complimented with bold hues

As the sneaker community anticipates Summer 2024, an intriguing disclosure has been made about a fresh hue of Mike's fifth signature style, known as the Air Jordan 5 SE "Sail."

On the company's website, the following is a description of the AJ 5 signature shoe's beginnings:

“In his 1989 - 1990 season, it was clear that MJ was better than ever. Setting a points per game personal record, he drained 69 points against Cleveland. He hit 92 three-pointers, compared to only 68 in all prior seasons combined. Every aspect of MJ's game was flawless, but it was his dogfight-like flight that separated him from every other player on the planet.”

The Jordan Brand website further highlights the eye-catching design of the fifth iconic silhouette with the following statement:

“Tinker Hatfield took inspiration from Jordan's biting style and, likening it to an American WWII fighter plane, he designed the Air Jordan V with shark-tooth shapes on the midsole. Paired with a clear outsole, the shoe an imbued a ferocity reminiscent of its relentless muse.”

Sneaker insiders like Sneaker Files and zSneakerheadz recently shared the first mock-up image of the upcoming Air Jordan 5 SE "Sail" colorway on social media accounts.

With a Sail foundation as well as Coconut Milk highlights on the famous clear netting featured on the panels and tongues, in addition to on the outsole, the Air Jordan 5 is anticipated to display high-quality materials while emitting a traditional charm. Additionally, the shoe has lovely Black and Light Orewood Brown accents all over it.

It's crucial to understand that at this point, any given mock-up photos that have been spreading on social media or sneaker sites are just theoretical. They can serve as a visual guide for enthusiasts, but they do not represent the finished product.

The mystery surrounding this release, like many others, adds to the interest, and it's possible that the final product won't look exactly like what was initially predicted.


Keep a lookout for the upcoming AJ 5 SE "Sail" shoes, which are set to release next summer. This sneaker guarantees to be a must-have for every sneaker aficionado with its classic style and high-quality materials.
