Expressing a “Sail/Chile Red/Opti Yellow/Pearl White” color scheme, the upper of the shoes features a tear-away canvas covering that can be removed to reveal a hidden pattern. Aside from Jumpman motifs appearing on the tongue and printed insole, additional detailing comes in the form of a scroll style “AIR JORDAN” badge on the underside of the tongue, “ACTION” expressed behind the medial netting and a banner patch at the rear. Elevating the shoe is a matching Air-assisted midsole with red hits and a translucent rubber outsole. Finally, each pair comes packaged in a specially designed box that carries the pattern hidden below the tear-away cover.
Priced $215 USD, the Air Jordan 5 Low “Chinese New Year” is set to release January 23, 2021.
