Air Jordan 5 Retro Shanghai Shen
The Air Jordan 5 Retro Shanghai Shen is a rare China-exclusive colorway of Michael Jordan’s iconic fifth signature shoe that was released in 2013. Unquestionably one of the most sought after non-original Air Jordan 5s ever, the “Shanghai Shen” is inspired by the color coordination of the “Black Laney” Jordan 5. Moreover, the “Shanghai” falls in line with other rare overseas exclusive Jordan 5s like the “Quai 54” and “Tokyo23.”
As mentioned, the style borrows from the color block of the “Black Laney” as the upper of the “Shanghai” is composed of a black synthetic nubuck material. A yellow Shanghai medallion appears on the lateral side of the heel and a Varsity Royal embroidered Jumpman resides on the back of the shoe.
A yellow lace toggle with a blue Jumpman rests below the blue Jumpman embroidery on the black nylon tongue. Per the original styling of the Jordan 5, the “Shanghai” features translucent netting on the lower tongue and mid-panel. This highly desirable shoe displays a yellow and blue painted midsole with shark tooth detailing on the forefoot just like the “OG” design of the Jordan 5’s. Release date: September 29, 2013.
