Air Jordan’s archive is so extensive and legendary that it’s no wonder why they keep re-releasing old favorites. The AJ Retro 5 ‘Green Bean’ is pulled right out of 2006, choosing to stay very faithful to its original design. It may have been 16 years since these shoes have seen the light of day, but all that time has done is make us even more excited for May 28th.
As mentioned above, the ‘Green Bean’ didn’t stray too far from its OG source material. As such, the reflective silver detailing is back in full force. Matched with the titular green along the Jumpman, midsole, and lining, this sneaker holds nothing back.
The silver keeps the AJ5 safely in that neutral no-nonsense territory, but the ‘Green Bean’ accents do a lot to keep it exciting and something to remember, even 16 years later.
The Air Jordan Retro 5 ‘Green Bean’ hits the ground running on May 28th in men's sizing at 10 am EST. Eating your veggies is good for you, but this ‘Green Bean’ is even better.
