Can you believe it? It’s been thirty years since the Air Jordan line expanded for the fifth time. The result of Tinker Hatfield’s genius was the shark-like Air Jordan 5! And through the years we witnessed some amazing colorways. From a staple on the Fresh Prince’s feet to creative takes by Virgil Abloh, Jordan 5 has it all. So, to keep these memories, Jordan Brand is giving us a mashup like no other. Let’s take a look at the new Jordan 5 What The!

Which Colorways Does Jordan 5 What The Include?

The new Jordan 5 What The is a mashup of 8 different colorways! Each of these has an important place in our hearts. The kicks in question are:

Jordan 5 What The Pair

Jordan 5 Tokyo

This pair dropped in celebration of the opening of the Tokyo 23 Jordan shop! The yellow upper is all the proof we need. Today, the pair is worth $6,500 on the aftermarket!

Jordan 5 What The - AJ5 Tokyo

Jordan 5 Army Olive

This pair decorates the tongue of the kicks. Although the 2006 colorway is not as popular as others, it’s still worth $500+ on the resale market!

Jordan 5 Laser

Another lowkey sexy colorway, the orange graphic pair makes a statement on Jordan 5 What The. However, it’s not as obvious as the Tokyo 5s, because we can find them on the insoles only. This pair is available on resale platforms for $400+.

Jordan 5 Bel-Air

The fresh prince deserves a fresh pair. After rocking the Jordan 5s on his feet during the run of the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, we got a tribute! The kicks are a nod to the show with the flashy colors. Bel-Air makes a statement on Jordan 5 What The purple midsole!

Jordan 5 Raging Bull

The Chicago Bulls are a major part of the Jordan legacy. However, this time they went literal with the Toro Bravo Pack. The red suede on Jordan 5 What The is an exact copy of the Raging Bull colorway! If you want to buy the kicks you’ll have to pay $900+!

Jordan 5 Shanghai

An extremely rare China-exclusive colorway that we can’t deny that we love it. Luckily, the colorway is coming back in 2020 on Jordan 5 What The with the heel logo. Today, the Shanghai 5s are worth an average of $950 on the resale market!

Jordan 5 Green Bean

The pair that glows. We all know the 3M tongue on the 5s. However, this particular pair features 3M all over the upper! Unfortunately, we won’t get that on Jordan 5 What The. So we’ll have to settle for 3M tongues!

Jordan 5 Quai 54

Last but not least. Quai 54 is the only streetball tournament that Jordan Brand sponsors. And in honor of the even, Jordan Brand usually drops kicks under the same name. The 2011 Jordan 5 Quai 54 is present on the upcoming kicks’ midsole and outsole! Finally, if you want the original colorway, you can find it on the resale market for about $500.

Release Info

The new Jordan 5 What The will drop on November 7, 2020, for $220. However, if you miss out on the release, you can pay around $300 and buy it off resell platforms! Although this doesn’t look like much, copping in bulk then flipping them all would end up being pretty profitable. So don’t miss out on these kicks, and have NSB ready for some serious cooking!
