As much as we hate to play favorites, the Air Jordan 5 holds a very special place deep in our hearts. So finding out we could expect an entirely new colorway before the year is out is reason enough to make the Nike silhouette our Sneaker of the Week.

The Air Jordan 5 kicked off the '90s in a most incredible way with a silhouette that still feels as futuristic as it did the first time we saw it. This colorway is interesting, to say the least, with a midsole that steals the show by going gradient. Black and infrared 23 transitions to light poison green and grey splattered with black -- the effect is echoed on the tongue as well. Black mesh paneling and an ankle eyelet perched in a white leather upper finishes the quizzical look off well.

These are going to be one of those drops that you see everybody with after their June 6 release date. Mark your calendars accordingly so that you don't miss out.
