This Air Jordan 5 Low “China” is another Chinese Air Jordan releases that highlights the low-top Air Jordan 5 which Jordan Brand is bringing back in 2016. The shoe features a Black-based upper with Bright Crimson accents hitting the eyelets, midsole’s shark teeth, lace lock and Air Unit, along with a Chinese graphic art on the tongue, heel and insole. Finishing off the look is an icy translucent outsole.
Driven by traditional Chinese kites and their colorful onset as they soar through the sky, this commemorative Air Jordan 5 Low comes deeply entrenched in cultural ties. As it would seem, the high-flying kites work in unison with Jordan’s high wire act, which always took place above the rim. Known as an invention by the Chinese, the kite has a deep meaning of good luck and well wishes in Chinese culture and as a result has made its way onto the Air Jordan 5 Low. The positive meaning and imagery lands on the tongue and heel of the Air Jordan 5 in lively and vibrant colors of Bright Crimson, Beta Blue, pink and more while the majority of the shoe is done on Black.
