Did Jordan Brand Just Confirm the 2016 Return of 'Nike Air' Jordan 5s?

It looks like it.

Nike Air Jordan 5 2016

It looks like the "Nike Air" Jordan 4 in white/cement isn't the only original Jordan colorway coming back next year with its original branding.

In a post from today on the retro remaster program, Jordan Brand conspicuously included a couple images of what appears to be an upcoming version of the black/metallic Air Jordan 5 complete with "Nike Air" embroidery on the back.

Unfortunately, the whole shoe isn't on display and there's no explicit mention made of its return, but that seems to be what Jordan Brand is hinting at here. Remember that images have already leaked of a supposed 2016 "Nike Air" Jordan 5 in the black/metallic colorway, making a release all the more likely.

Sole Collector will have a Jordan release date on this pair as it's available.
