Jordan Brand continues to surprise us with more and more leaks of sneakers set to release for this year and 2021. Now it appears the Air Jordan 5 “Tokyo” may be set to Retro before years end. 

Originally released back in 2011, this Air Jordan 5 was originally released to celebrate the Jordan Tokyo 23 store in Japan. The sneaker was kept limited and only released in Japan in 2011, so now may be the time for a Retro release for all the other sneakerheads around the world. The Air Jordan 5 has also been popular this Summer with multiple colorways already released and set to release, this AJ5 may be the highlight of the year.

Dressed in Varsity Maize, Anthracite, Wolf Grey, and Black, the upper is equipped with yellow nubuck. Black and White accents contrast the design while Metallic Silver paints the tongue for that OG feel. A white, yellow, and black midsole begin to finish off the design while a translucent outsole and a special “23” Shibuya Ward-inspired is stamped on the ankles.
