We’ve seen many classic Air Jordan kicks make a reappearance throughout the years. But the timing and significance behind this one is special.
With the release of ESPN documentary The Last Dance, we’ve all enjoyed reliving some of Michael Jordan’s most iconic nights on the court. One of His Royal Airness’ most memorable nights comes on March 28, 1990, during a Chicago Bulls game against the Cleveland Cavaliers. That epic night would become MJ’s top-scoring game, racking up 69 points against the rival. The kicks he was wearing as he completed this feat? The Air Jordan Retro 5 ‘Fire Red.’
This iconic sneaker is making its return for the first time since the 90s in its true OG form. A smooth white leather upper tops a black midsole featuring Fire Red details. An icy outsole with a red Jumpman logo and a 3M reflective silver tongue add a special touch, capped off by Nike Air Branding on the heel. The Air Jordan Retro 5 ‘Fire Red’ lands on jdsports.com this Saturday, May 2 in full family sizing.
