While trivial to most folks, the change is quite apparent to sneakerheads. Instead of releasing everything in a lump sum during Black Friday this year, Nike and Jordan Brand decided to spread all of their major offerings throughout the week, with the Air Jordan 5 “Oreo” as the centerpiece. Similar to another popular snack-related AJs, the 1999 Air Jordan IV “Oreo”, this new rendition features the familiar black and white color scheme. But more importantly, the speckled outsole that is now a design signature of the “Oreo” series. Finished with an icy translucent outsole and lace locks, the edition also helps to celebrate the 23rd anniversary, Michael Jordan’s jersey number, of the Air Jordan 5 model.
