The Air Jordan 5 shoe was released in 1990. Phil Jackson took over as head coach for the Bulls in the 89-90 seasons, who gave the Bull’s an extra boost and everything was flying. Jordan kept on playing his game and set a personal best when scoring 69 points in a game against the Cleveland Cavaliers. Hatfield came up with a revolutionary design for the Air Jordan 5. A few elements were picked up from its predecessor but it featured a great silver/reflex tongue and a clear/see-through rubber sole which gave it a totally unique look. Air Jordan 5 Shoe was the first time anyone had ever molded foam into a shoe upper. Tinker came to the conclusion that the way Michael performed was “like a Fighter Plane”. The design of Nike Air Jordan 5 gets inspiration from “grey nurse shark” or Super marine Spitfire MkVIII, which is a World War II British fighter plane. To add to the finishing touches of the shoe, Tinker added a reflective 3M tongue with Jumpman embroidery. When the Air Jordan 5 Shoes first came out in 1990, they retailed for $125.00. In 2000 when the Air Jordan 5 shoes made its second appearance they sold for $120.00. 2006 Jordan Brand re-released the Nike Air Jordan 5 Shoes once again with retail for $135.00.
