It’s been nearly 7 years to the day since the first Air Jordan 5 “Oreo,” and now rumors have emerged of a possible rerelease for the popular retro colorway.

First introduced in Fall 2013, the “Oreo” Air Jordan 5 flips Nike’s fan-favorite speckled black-and-white theme on Michael Jordan’s 5th signature sneaker. The 2013 version of the sneaker uses a black nubuck upper with a white midsole accented by a black flame design with white splatter. The straightforward colorway was popular upon its first release, and now it’s expected to return during Summer 2021.

While the leaked information suggests a retro of the “Oreo” make up, in-hand images are not yet available, and the pair pictured here is from the original 2013 run. 

According to leak accounts @soleheatonfeet and @zsneakerheadz, the Air Jordan 5 Retro “Oreo” is expected to arrive on July 24, 2021. Given its far-off release date, the exact day may change, so be sure to check back in the coming months for updates.

UPDATE (06/25): New release info surfaces for the upcoming return of the “Oreo” Air Jordan 5. Per @zSneakerheadz, fans can now expect the pair to arrive on Aug. 25 for $190.

UPDATE (08/10): Here’s an official look at this year’s release of the “Oreo” Air Jordan 5 via Nike. As of now, the pair is scheduled to hit shelves on Sept. 11 for $190 but an official date hasn’t been confirmed by Jordan Brand.

UPDATE (09/04): Initially scheduled to drop next week, Nike confirms via SNKRS that the “Oreo” Air Jordan 5 is officially releasing on Sept. 25 for $190.
