Off White collaborations are always head-turners, whether you like them or not. The first Off White Jordan 5 Metallic Black collaboration was controversial, to say the least. However, it ended up selling out as fast as you can say “Michael Jordan”! So what does this new pair hold for us?

Off White Jordan 5 2020

A Quick Recap Won’t Hurt Though!

We’d like to remember the first Off White Jordan 5. The awesome Jordan 5 silhouette came in with a DIY vibe like no other. You could literally punch holes into it and flex the cool socks you own. The kicks dropped on February 15, 2020, after much teasing in 2019, and retailed for $225. Today, the kicks resell for up to $1,150, that’s a lot of pocket cash if you ask me. But if you missed this release, it’s alright, you’ll get another chance soon!

Off White Jordan 5 “Fire Red”

We love modern twists on classic colorways! And the new Off White Jordan 5 Sail is all that and more. The new colorway is an interesting take on the original AJ5 Fire Red! Instead of the white upper, we’re going for an off-white upper (yes yes, the pun is on purpose). But that’s not it, Virgil is going for the same DIY synthetic material for the upper! So you can punch these holes in on this one too! The midsole comes in classic black along with the red shark tooth design.

Other details include the yellow translucent outsole that gives the worn-out vibe to the kicks. We also got the signature 23 on the side of the heel along with the Nike Air heel branding. So all in all, we can conclude that the Off White Jordan 5 Sail is the hybrid result of AJ5 Fire Red and the first OW Jordan 5! Although we know where the pair gets its looks for, there’s still a little similarity to another pair. The 2015 Supreme Jordan 5 collaboration dropped in three colorways: black, white, and camo. The white pair looks pretty close to the new Off White Jordan 5 Sail. And the Supreme pair currently resells for about $1,200!
