The Air Jordan line has always taken inspiration from the act of flight, both on and off the court. In 1990 it was WWII fighter planes, whose features – especially the shark-mouth nose art – were echoed by the Air Jordan V's most distinct design lines. The theme was continued on the classic royal-and-black flight suits from the same era. The latest Air Jordan V connects both expressions of flight, delivering a stand-out look that's loaded with history.
Since his game-winning shot that brought championship glory to North Carolina, Michael Jordan has been at the forefront of basketball consciousness. He took the court in 1985 wearing the original Air Jordan I, simultaneously breaking league rules and his opponents' will while capturing the imagination of fans worldwide.
