After recent, and much-hyped, collab spins on the Air Jordan 4, Jordan Brand now treats us to a new colorway of the Air Jordan 5. The Air Jordan 5 “Oregon” is inspired by the Oregon Ducks football team and comes dressed in the team’s green and yellow colors. It’s set for release this weekend, but you can secure your pair ahead of the drop at StockX now.
Also being dubbed the Air Jordan 5 “Apple Green” and “Elevate”, the colorway draws from the lauded Oregon Ducks player exclusive Air Jordan 5 that was released back in 2015, with the OG sneaker’s Oregon branding replaced with the iconic Jumpman emblem this time. It’s not just the city’s football team that this latest AJ5 nods too, either, with Nike co-founder Phil Knight also a University of Oregon alumni.
Luxe-looking green Durabuck makes up most of the upper, which is contrasted nicely with a black mesh panel and the AJ5 silhouette’s signature aircraft-inspired detailed at the sole in yellow. A heel patch reading “Quality Inspired By the Greatest Player Ever” makes sure that, despite this being a football-inspired sneaker, you don’t forget where it all started.
StockX market data shows that the Nike Air Jordan 5 “Oregon” is currently selling for an average price of around $300, and reaching a 52-week high of $796; a considerably cheaper cost than the $5,000 the player exclusive “Oregon” can trade for.
