Air Jordan V

Released: 1990
Complex Says: "In describing his inspiration for the Air Jordan V, Tinker Hatfield stated that 'He [Michael Jordan] would be floating around the edges of the game and come out of nowhere and attack... As I worked through the design of the shoe, I thought I'd make it look a little bit like a fighter plane.' While Tinker may have just been using the World War II P-40 Warhawk fighter plane to add a 'narrative approach' to the Jordan design legacy, Jordan himself took the design literally and dropped a career-high 69-point bomb on the Cleveland Cavaliers while wearing the Vs."
