Virgil Abloh‘s Off-White™ x Air Jordan 5 “Sail” has been teased since April and its rumored holiday release is still months away, but anticipation for the see-through Jordan Brand style is still high — and now we’ve been provided with a detailed on and off foot look. Essentially a deconstructed iteration of the OG Air Jordan 5 “Fire Red,” Abloh and the Jumpman’s latest offers a stripped-back synthetic look, an aged tint and, of course, “RECOGNIZABLE” “BRANDED” “DETAILS.”

Paired with Supreme camo pants by noted sneaker leaker repgod888, the yellowed detail on the “Sail” pops in undeniable fashion, providing an artfully aged look. Signature zip ties match the yellowed tint of the midfoot netting, eyestays and outsole as well, while traditional red and black midsoles serve up plenty of ’90s Michael Jordan flair alongside the heel’s Nike Air hit and lateral side’s #23 graphic.

Detail shots are available as well, giving a closer look at the synthetic TPE construction and Abloh’s notable Helvetica branding on the medial quarter. Semi-translucent circles on quarter, heel and tongue alike are the most notable tweak, providing a regimented customization option for aspiring DIY mavens.

The Off-White™ x Air Jordan 5 “Sail” will touch down at retailers later this year. MSRP will likely be $225 USD, in line with the “Black Metallic” colorway that released at NBA All-Star Weekend in February.
