In the old folk song “Turn! Turn! Turn!,” there is a catchy phrase of “…to everything there is a season…,” a description quite fitting for the Air Jordan 5 “Bel Air”. While outlandish in appearance if it were to be released some years ago, 2013 seems to be the ideal year for the neon-colored silhouette. Maybe it’s because the Air Jordan 5 model is celebrating its 23rd anniversary, or because a certain sitcom from the 1990s is enjoying some sort of resurgence. Whatever the real reasons are, there is no denying that this nod to the pop culture of yesteryear is this month’s most desirable sneaker.
Retailing at around $185 USD, the Air Jordan V “Bel Air” –in Cool Grey with a splash of Court Purple, Game Royal, and Club Pink — will be available starting this Saturday, October 5th, 2013, through select Jordan Brand retailers, including NOHBLE or Olympic Town stores in the New York/New Jersey region.
