SNEAKER NEWS: THE “GOLD TONGUE”

AIR JORDAN 5 RETRO “GOLD TONGUE”

Team USA takes on Spain in the Olympic Semi-Finals today at 2:30pm. The game promises to be one of the squad’s toughest to date in the men’s basketball bracket, and (fingers crossed) it should be a hard fought game especially considering Team USA’s earlier struggles against lesser opponents. Jordan Brand is celebrating the quest for another Gold Medal in an exciting new way with the introduction of the Air Jordan 5 “Gold Tongue” slated to release this Saturday, August 20th for $190 USD.

The Jordan 5 Gold Tongue keeps things relatively simple thanks to a clean white remastered leather upper with matching side panel mesh, a high-contrast black midsole, and an icy outsole. The real call to attention here is the Metallic Gold Coin accents throughout, found in the form of a patent leather tongue and on the mustang fighter jet-inspired shark teeth, speckled with black to match the midsole. Interestingly enough, this Olympic-referencing retro skips out on any American affiliation as the usual red, white, and blue colorway is absent for a new twist that instead focuses on the prize at hand – the Olympic Gold Medal.

What do you think of the latest Air Jordan 5 release? Check out more of the Jordan 5 Gold Tongue after the break, and if you can’t wait to grab your pair tomorrow, you can already find your size on eBay.
