What The?!? Jordan Brand releases a mash-up of the V’s rarest colorways

Posted on Nov 7, 2020 in Jordan Brand

The ‘What The’ fever continues on with the Air Jordan V.

A little under a year ago, Jordan Brand unveiled their first official WTH colorway with the Air Jordan IV What The (Top 3 iterations are in a class of their own and are not considered part of the WTH series). This year’s entry to the ‘What The’ series is also part of the brand’s celebration of the silhouette’s 30th anniversary.

While most ‘What The’ colorways bring back familiar colorways, mostly OG, the V’s entry to the series brings non-OG colorways that have been regarded some of the best to ever been released for the Air Jordan V. Upon first glance, you’ll notice some of the more notable pairs stick out on the shoe’s design:

Right Foot:

  • Air Jordan 5 ‘Tokyo 23’ – right shoe upper, including the Kanji character stitched on the heel (2011);
  • Air Jordan 5 ‘Army Olive’ – right tongue, 3M reflective tongue (2006);
  • Air Jordan 5 ‘Laser’ – right shoe lining (2007);
  • Air Jordan 5 ‘Bel-Air’ – right shoe midsole/outsole (2013);

Left Foot:

  • Air Jordan 5 ‘Raging Bull’ – left shoe upper, suede (2009);
  • Air Jordan 5 ‘Shanghai Shen’ – stitched yellow heel badge (2009);
  • Air Jordan 5 ‘Bel-Air’- left shoe lining (2013);
  • Air Jordan 5 ‘Green Bean’ – left tongue, 3M reflective tongue (2006);
  • Air Jordan 5 ‘Quai 54’ – left shoe midsole/outsole (2011);

Some of us may have been fortunate to pick up all 8 pairs individually, but this is a good keepsake of the best AJ5’s ever made. The Air Jordan V ‘What The’ drops today, November 7, via Titan ( App) and ( and will retail for Php 10,995.
