After being teased since February, Virgil Abloh and Jordan Brand‘s Off-White™ x Air Jordan 5 “Sail” has finally received a set of official images — a standard indication of a forthcoming retail release. A stripped-back take on the OG Air Jordan 5 “Fire Red,” Abloh’s latest collaborative project is both past and future, combining aged patinas and classic colors with new-wave technical materials.

Uppers are built almost entirely of a thin TPE. Along with the AJ5’s signature midfoot netting and large eyestays, this semi-translucent synthetic is given an aged yellow finish, one that’s similar in color — if not material — to Nigel Sylvester’s Air Jordan 1 collaboration from 2018. Signature “23” and “Nike Air” hits are visible on the heel, while the tongue retains its original metallic silver shade, embroidered red Jumpman graphic and lace toggle.

Abloh’s signature medial Helvetica text and lateral zip tie return as well, but the shoe’s most notable embellishment is provided by the delicate TPE oval pieces, placed haphazardly on the collar, tongue and both quarter panels. Much like the Off-White™ x Air Jordan 5 “Black Metallic,” these holes can easily be removed with a razor blade for an interesting touch of controlled customization. Jet black midsoles with the AJ5’s P-51 Mustang-inspired spike graphic and yellowed outsoles finalize the look.

The Off-White™ x Air Jordan 5 “Sail” will release on Nike SNKRS October 29. The MSRP is set at $225 USD.
