It’s an annual tradition for Jordan Brand to scan through its retro archives and decide on which classic silhouettes and colorways to reintroduce to the market. And in 2022, the sneaker community is going to see the imprint highlight the Air Jordan 5 “Green Bean” — a makeup that originally launched back in 2006.
Judging based off of a set of early leaked images of the shoes, it appears that they will be making a comeback with all of its original design cues. Reflective materials steal the show for this Jordan iteration as they form the tongues, toe boxes, collars and the overlays. Stealthy, charcoal gray accents are integrated into the eye stays, and “Green Bean” accents are situated onto the interior lining, Jumpman logos on the tongues and the lace toggles. Netting on the middle of the throat and the quarter panels are done up with their usual translucent appearance. Bottoms are presented with charcoal gray midsoles, green forefoot spikes and icy blue treading to round off its entire look.
Those who are interested in adding these to their rotation can anticipate a launch to go down on May 7 likely via SNKRS and affiliated retailers. Retail price for the adult’s pair is $190 USD. In case you wanted to cop them now, they’re available via GOAT.
