A flash up the middle. Bold moves under bright light. Like the man who wore them, the Air Jordan 5′s tongue stood out, a signature of style. Back in 1990, inspired by WWII Mustang fighter planes, created the Air Jordan 5 to embody aggressive flight. Featuring a reflective tongue that mirrored the iconic plane’s metallic shine, the shoe, like MJ himself, made an impression with every airborne attack. 23 years later, the flash is back, reflecting greatness past and present, and turning heads well into the future. – Jordan Brand
