The original Air Jordan V was released in February 1990, again designed by Hatfield. Some elements were the same from the Air Jordan IV, but the Air Jordan V’s most distinctive feature is arguably its reflective tongue. There was also another innovation: clear rubber soles. The Air Jordan V also featured a base top with lace locks, making strapping on the shoe easy. The lacelock feature partly inspired the Air Jordan Spiz’ike. The Air Jordan V model is considered to have the best structure and design to wear during basketball games and sold the most pairs of shoes from the Air Jordan line. The Air Jordan 5 (V) Retro LS – black/university blue-white is a beautiful piece of work. The most noticeable thing about this shoe is the double blue stitching that runs throughout the entire upper of the shoe. The blue blends well on the black, and the clear blue outsole is a good look while providing for better traction. The Air Jordan 5 (V) was inspired by the WW2 Mustang fighter plane. The most obvious element of the inspiration is the shark teeth shapes that are located on the midsole of the shoe. It was also was the first Air Jordan shoe to have a clear sole, which not only added a nice look to it, but provided far better traction. The Air Jordan 5 (V) also featured an iridescent reflective tongue and lace locks.
