Though there has been much speculation about this colorway, this Air Jordan 5 Retro is inspired by ProStars, a 1991 Saturday morning cartoon that featured Michael Jordan, Wayne Gretzky and Bo Jackson as a trio of super athletes turned superheroes. The animated series only lasted 13 episodes, but it's impact is clearly still being felt today.
Pulling vibrant hues from the ProStars palette, the white-based shoe is accented by infrared and poison green along the speckled midsole, which represents an authentic tie to the 90s. What also separates this pair from the pack are blacked out plastic mesh quarter panels.
This wild new style has a Jordan release date set for next Saturday, June 6 at nikestore.com and Nike retailers for $190.
