The Air Jordan 5 appears to be Jordan Brand‘s collegiate football PE of choice in the early days of 2021, as after the UNC Tar Heels revealed a powder blue pair images of an Oklahoma Sooners style have surfaced. Shared by Oklahoma Football head coach Lincoln Riley — the man responsible for grooming Baker Mayfield and Kyler Murray, both #1 overall picks in the NFL Draft and Heisman Trophy winners — the Sooners’ PE boasts vibrant team tones and plenty of special details.
Uppers are dressed in Sooner red and covered from heel to toe in elephant print. This classic build surrounds translucent mesh netting on the quarter panel and throat, while the black tongues boast embroidered white OU branding. Further details are provided by white laces and a white Nike Air hit on the heel. Down below, white midsoles feature a clear Air cushioning unit in the heel and toothed black detailing on the forefoot. Outsoles offer icy blue translucent rubber and boast a large red OU logo stamped under the forefoot.
As these Air Jordan 5s were crafted for Oklahoma football players, coaches and other staff. they’ll never received a retail release.
