Jordan Brand is dropping a new “Aqua” colorway of the Air Jordan 5 as part of its Spring 2023 retro lineup.

This pair is said to be inspired by the OG “Aqua” Jordan 8, though based on the mock-up, these also bear a strong resemblance to Chris Paul’s Air Jordan 5 PE from his days on the New Orleans Hornets, circa 2006. Expect a black nubuck upper with Aqua accents on the tongue and outsole, as well as a hit of Taxi yellow on the shark teeth of the midsole.

The Air Jordan 5 “Aqua” is currently expected to drop on January 21st on SNKRS and at select retailers. Stay tuned to Modern Notoriety for first looks and additional updates.
