Adding to the 2021 list, Jordan Brand will be releasing a new Air Jordan 5 early next year that dons an “Anthracite” theme.

While we wait for the Top 3 and Alternate Grape Air Jordan 5 to release this Summer, Jordan Brand is preparing another edition that will be arriving in early 2021. Originally released in 1990, the AJ5 is still relevant in today’s sneaker game and still looks as fresh in 2020 as it did in its debut year.

Dressed in Anthracite, Wolf Grey, Clear and Black, no leaked images of the 2021 colorway have surfaced but based on the official colorway, we have a good idea on how the sneaker will arrive. Expect a dark Anthracite suede upper that arrives in the usual Air Jordan 5 form along with black and grey detailing throughout. An icy translucent rubber outsole will then finish off the new look.


The Air Jordan 5 “Anthracite” is expected to release February 2021 at select Jordan retailers and for the usual price-tag of $190. Official images have been released ahead of the releases. Keep it locked for updates and release links.
