This Air Jordan 5 Retro SE gets a rich burgundy hue, reminiscent of the original colorway that debuted back in 2006. The upper is crafted with genuine nubuck, a significant upgrade from the 2006 version, ensuring a premium feel and appearance.
The shoe's design is accentuated with gray contrast stitching, which subtly complements the deep burgundy tone. One of the most eye-catching features is the reflective tongue, which remains true to the Air Jordan 5's iconic design. Additionally, the shoe comes equipped with a lace lock, a nod to its heritage, though some may opt to remove it for a more streamlined look.
The sole retains the classic clear rubber at the heel and forefoot, with the signature Air Jordan 5 shark teeth design. The fit is true to size, providing comfort and a snug feel for wearers. However, potential buyers should be aware of the color migration or "bleeding" that can occur with the high-quality nubuck material, a common trait with such premium materials.
