Did Virgil Abloh get the last laugh on this pair?
When the Off-White Air Jordan 5 leaked months ago, people had differing opinions about it. Unlike the Air Jordan 1, people are not feeling the way Virgil Abloh reinterpreted the Air Jordan 5. Differing from the OG Air Jordan 5 includes its use of circular cutouts on the upper and tongue (which Abloh removed in a video), unique material for the upper, and yellowed-out outsoles. Elements of the Air Jordan 5 were preserved though—like the fully reflective tongue and 23 branding on the side.
Abloh tweeted a few days back that those hating on his work with the Air Jordan 5 will appreciate it eventually, with StockX reporting resale prices at around the Php 40k mark. Should you consider adding this pair to your hype sneaker collection? Watch the video below:
