Back in 2008, Jordan brand had introduced Air Jordan 6 Rings for the very first time. The hybrid model was designed as a nod to the six championship rings that Michael Jordan had received over the course of his illustrious career. This silhouette borrowed elements and features from Jordan Brand’s signature line, namely from the Air Jordan 6-8 and the Air Jordan 11-14. Now, Jordan Brand seems to have designed another hybrid of a similar nature. Sneakerheads would have never imagined the Air Jordan 1, 5 and 23 getting combined. However, Jordan Brand has done just that with this new hybrid model, dubbed the Jordan 1 Flight 5 Low.
This Jordan 1 Flight 5 Low silhouette may not seem as elaborate and intricate as the Air Jordan 6 Rings, but it does not seem to be as simple as Jordan Brand’s “Lab” releases. After all, this model combines the best of three different Air Jordan models, namely the Air Jordan 1, Air Jordan 5 and Air Jordan 23. Coincidentally, the Air Jordan 6 Rings had also debuted in three initial colorways and it seems that Jordan Brand will also be dropping three colorways for the retail debut of the Jordan 1 Flight 5 Low.
As far as the overall design of the Jordan 1 Flight 5 Low is concerned, this low-top model looks pretty straightforward and streamlined. Coming to the borrowed features, its sole units are those of the Air Jordan 1, its toe boxes and tongues come from the Air Jordan 5 and finally, the jersey number brand featured on its heels is from the Air Jordan 23. Jordan Brand has already unveiled three different colorways, which have tonal all-Black, all-Blue and all-Red tonal uppers, respectively, and they are all equipped with identical clean White-colored sole units.
These three Jordan 1 Flight 5 Low colorways are likely set to join Jordan Brand’s Spring Jordan releases 2017. However, it has yet to be announced when these sneakers will be arrive at retailers, so keep checking back.
