In his 1989 โ€” 1990 season, it was clear that MJ was better than ever. Setting a points per game personal record, he drained 69 points against Cleveland. He hit 92 three-pointers, compared to only 68 in all prior seasons combined. Every aspect of MJโ€™s game was flawless, but it was his dogfight-like flight that separated him from every other player on the planet.
Tinker Hatfield took inspiration from Jordanโ€™s biting style and, likening it to an American WWII fighter plane, he designed the Air Jordan V with shark-tooth shapes on the midsole. Paired with a clear outsole, the shoe a imbued a ferocity reminiscent of its relentless muse.
The Air Jordan 5 โ€œInternational Flightโ€ is inspired by Michael Jordanโ€™s status as basketballโ€™s greatest global ambassador. Along with โ€œInternational Flightโ€ editions of the Air Jordan 3 and Air Jordan 12, this unique Jordan 5 was released in 2018. This specific colorway is inspired by an exhibition game Jordan played in against the Spanish national team in Barcelona, Spain in 1990. Jordan wore a pair of the original Air Jordan 5 โ€œFire Redโ€ with a blue, orange, and white uniform. The Air Jordan 5 โ€œInternational Flightโ€ takes the uniform colors and translates them across the silhouette, featuring a white leather upper with black, orange, and blue accents. A graphic print is also added to the inner lining and behind the clear mesh panels on the midfoot.
