It’s been four long years since the Air Jordan V in the OG Black/Metallic Silver colorway was last retroed. Michael wore these during a season on the precipice — ’89-’90, in which the Bulls, under new coach Phil Jackson, compiled their best record to date before falling yet again to Isiah’s Pistons in the Eastern Conference Finals. (They’d break through and win it all the following year.) The Tinker Hatfield-designed shoes have since become a perennial fan favorite, featuring distinctive details like the lace locks, reflective tongue and clear soles. Get ready because they’re hitting store shelves tomorrow (and online retailers late tonight). Priced at $150, these are sure to go quick.
