DJ Khaled Reveals The Air Jordan 5 We The Best Collection

Over the last decade, women’s-exclusive product from Nike Outlet . has increased in numbers. And while the company still lags behind in designing footwear from scratch for its women audience, it has struck gold with modifications to certain men’s options. Case in point?: The Nike Air Force 1 Shadow, a fashion-forward take on Bruce Kilgore’s 1982 basketball shoe. Debuted in 2019, the model garnered attention immediately, likely for its similarities to offerings from sacai. Exaggerated details and compelling colorways have made the Air Force 1-variant a popular choice among women sneaker enthusiasts, for whom Nike Sportswear is prepping an upcoming collection. While no specific name has been unveiled for the capsule, the lineup is set to include a Nike Dunk High covered in “Racer Blue”-colored satin. The upcoming take on Kilgore’s 40-year-old creation favors a “White” ensemble complimented by stark blue, “Atomic Green” and crimson tones. Insoles feature a modified version of a tagline Nike has used for Michael Jordan and other elite athletes over the years: “Designed to the exact specifications of her.”

Thanks to Jordan Brand, certain colorways — such as “Chicago” and “University Blue” — have become engrained in sneaker culture, Rick Owens Shoes appearing atop shoes far outside of their original scope. This is exactly what’s happening with the Nike PG 6, whose latest offering is not too unlike a pair of “Bred” 4s. The sole, for starters, is heavily reminiscent of the above-mentioned shoe, as it incorporates not only red but also a grey-dominant base. A light, marble-like pattern, however, accompanies the latter neutral, setting this PG 6 apart from its perceived inspiration. Elsewhere, the shade is solid-colored across the lace unit and embroidered Swoosh, black dyes the mesh upper near entirely, and additional red accents detail various parts of the upper.

DJ Khaled’s sturdy relationship with Jordan Brand has not only given the Miami-based producer an unprecedented level of access to footwear, but also the rarified opportunity to design his own shoes. In conjunction with his WE THE BEST platform, DJ Khaled has revealed a new Air Jordan 5 Retro in a 305-friendly mix of colors that include a pink/orange hue, bright purple, aqua teal, and a bone white with colorful interiors and accents and an opaque outsole, sail tints on the midsole, and the traditional silver big tongue of the AJ5. Brooks Sneakers Revealed through a promo video on his Instagram, which reveals detailed shots of the shoes in multiple colorways, matching apparel, and DJ Khaled doing his absolute best with a basketball, these Air Jordan 5s are — according to the caption — releasing to the public. Some pairs use just the Nike Air logo on the heel, while other’s feature Khaled’s “We The Best” logo, which may denote which is the retail pair and which is for friends and famiily. Those friends and family pairs could be available through a giveaway similar to how his earlier Air Jordan 3 “We The Best” was dropped. Detailed photos and information will likely follow, so check out a closer look at the shoes via the video ahead.
