The classic Jordan Brand has confirmed it will be launching a new golf shoe - the Air Jordan 5 Low Golf 'Fire Red - this Friday February 28 on Nike.com.
The unveiling of the shoe coincides with the 30th anniversary of Air Jordan - the brand of course made famous by NBA legend Michael Jordan.
If these shoes are anything like recent Jordan golf shoes, you will need to be quick as they typically sell out within hours.
Jordan shoes are regularly worn on the PGA Tour by Harold Varner III, Keegan Bradley and Pat Perez.
Here's what online contemporary fashion specialist Hypebeast has to say about the new Air Jordan 5 Low Golf 'Fire Red' shoe:
The Jordan Brand has added another model to its ever-growing golf footwear lineup: the Air Jordan 5 Low Golf “Fire Red.” The Jumpman has been making inroads on the world of performance golf gear over the past few years with spike-equipped takes on silhouettes like the Air Jordan 11 Low and Air Jordan 3, but this marks the first time the Air Jordan 5 Low has been remade for the links instead of the court or the streets.
Any fan of Air Jordan 5s is undeniably familiar with the “Fire Red” colorway, a mixture of a crisp white leather upper with bright red detailing/branded accents, colorless midfoot mesh netting, clear and red lace toggles, black and red P51 Mustang-inspired midsoles and icy blue translucent outsoles.
Here, the recognizable scheme is presented with a hi-vis reflective metallic silver tongue. This is one of two original “Fire Red” styles — the other features a black synthetic tongue and Michael Jordan‘s #23 stamped on the heel.
This faithful re-creation of a classic is then altered for the golf course by way of 7 circular black spikes on the bottom of each foot. These provide sport-specific grip, juxtaposing golf’s necessary traction with the AJ5’s basketball-specific cushioning setup.
RRP: $220 - available from Nike.com on February 28
