Shortly after the release of the “Metallic” colorway, we are now learning of rumors of the release for the alternate “Sail” take on the Off-White™ x Air Jordan 5. Reportedly coming to continue the 30th-anniversary celebrations for the classic model, the contrasting looks to be a pale rework of the most recent release from Virgil Abloh and Nike/Jordan Brand.

Once again the silhouette has been redone in a striking translucent TPE deconstructed “Ghosting” design, this time in an off white tone. Branding comes in the form of Jumpman marked 3M reflective tongues, upside-down “AIR JORDAN” patches, “23” marked at the heel, Nike Air motifs at the rear and classic logo motifs on the outsole.

Other continuing elements of Virgil and Nike’s ongoing collaborative partnership include Helvetica industrial text printing on the medial midfoot, “SHOELACES” emblazoned on the lace tips and a black iteration of Off-White™’s signature plastic zip-tie hangtag. Elevating the shoe is an off white midsole with bright red splashes paired with yellow-ed translucent rubber outsoles to simulate a worn look.

Reportedly priced at $225 USD, the Off-White™ x Air Jordan 5 “Sail” is expected to release in full family sizing sometime this holiday season.
