Sneaker of the Week: Supreme x Air Jordan 5 Desert Storm
It finally happened. By "it" we mean two street style juggernauts colliding in what could quite possibly be every hypebeast's wet dream. Supreme has teamed up with Jordan Brand. That’s right, your two favorite names are collaborating on a sneaker and we can already imagine the melee that will ensue upon the release. This news has us so amped up that we didn’t even think twice about making it our Sneaker of the Week.
The Air Jordan 5 is the lucky silhouette to be dressed in Supreme’s best and for this pair, the entire upper is covered in Desert Storm camouflage. This gives the sneaker its Desert Storm nickname and it also represents 1990, which is the year the shoe was released. Supreme also gives a plug to their own origin with a bold '94 stitched on the side as well as a partially visible logo beneath the netting. The look is finished with a black outsole and metallic silver accents, a silver tongue and a camouflage print lining.
When two of the most hallowed names combine, it’s almost unimportant what they churn out because supplies will be limited and that resale value will be crazy. It is also worth noting that Supreme is set to drop three Air Jordan 5 colorways in total, but outside of that, not much information is available. We can’t wait to see the rest of this release.
