Jordan Brand had another successful year of sneaker releases, and as 2022 winds down to a close, it’s already giving us a sneak peek into what shoes it’s got in store for 2023. In the pipeline for Michael Jordan’s sportswear company is the Air Jordan 5 “Mars for Her” for the ladies which has appeared by way of detailed imagery.
While this has yet to be confirmed by the Jumpman team, inspiration for this women’s exclusive appears to be drawn from the idea of “What If Mars Blackmon Dunked On Mars?” and could be a piece of a bigger “Dunk On Mars” assemblage. Its moniker already points to Mars Blackmon, the fictional character played by Spike Lee who has been featured in multiple commercials alongside MJ. Visually, its sultry suede red uppers and notes of black accents are reminiscent of the Air Jordan 5 “Raging Bull” — which saw a retro release in 2021. The standard “23” branding on the lateral heel arrives in the same presentation while the mid-foot netting comes with a pre-worn aesthetic. Down below, the midsoles are backdropped in black and come accessorized with spikes that are fitted with a fiery gradient.
Reports have these scheduled for a January 14, 2023 launch with the retail price set at $200 USD.
