It appears that fans will have to wait a bit longer before they can get their hands on the highly anticipated Off-White Air Jordan 5 “Sail” collaboration.
According to sneaker leak social media account @py_rates, Virgil Abloh’s take on Michael Jordan’s fifth signature sneaker has been delayed and will release “toward the back end of this year” after the shoe was initially reported to release this month. However, Nike did reveal images for the upcoming project this week, further adding to the excitement.
The “Sail” colorway of the Off-White x Air Jordan 5 Retro dons a predominately cream color scheme predominantly on the textile mesh upper that’s offset by a reflective silver tongue featuring a red Jumpman logo. Familiar Off-White details are seen with its signature zip tie attached on the laces along with its branding stamped on the medial portion of the shoe. The look finishes off with a black Air-cushioned midsole with red accents and a translucent outsole underneath.
*RELEASE DATE UPDATE*: The @jumpman23 x @off____white Air Jordan 5 Sail has been delayed. The pair will no longer be dropping worldwide on October 24th & instead will see a drop towards the back end of the year. #NoMoreSecrets 🏴
