A brand new colorway of the Air Jordan 5 is releasing this year, and this one is said to be inspired by the upcoming 2016 Olympics in Rio. Dubbed the Air Jordan 5 Olympic, let’s get a closer look at the shoe.
The Air Jordan 5 Olympic comes dressed in a predominantly White upper done in a leather construction. The White upper gets the “Olympic” theme by utilizing the Black and Gold accents placed throughout the shoe. The notable accents include the Metallic Gold tongue that’s meant to symbolize the Gold Medal given to the the cream of the crop during the Olympic games. Additional Gold is found on parts of the midsole, including the shark teeth. The Black accents take care of the Jumpman branding, eyelets, midsole and lining. Rounding out the main features of the shoe is the icy translucent outsole and the clear netting on the side panels. Currently slated for an August 13 release, you will be able to pick these up for $190.
The Air Jordan 5 Olympic Will Be Available In Full Family Sizing. Adult sizes will go for $190, while GS (3.5Y – 7Y), PS (11c – 3Y) and TD (2c – 10c) sizes are listed at $140, $80 and $60, respectively.

The gold hits on the shoe are nice, I just wish there was more of them. Adding more gold in places such as the netting, eyelets and/or laces would definitely help give the shoe some more pop.
