The latest addition to a string of 2013 Jordan 5 releases; parallel to its name, has an oriental influence. The ‘Shanghai Shen’ in particular takes great influence from the largest city in the People’s Republic of China, which previously has been known as the ‘Shen’. The Jordan brand has reflected the qualities of the city which is recognised for its ability to fuse the contemporary with its original traditions and values, via the use of the original black on the upper whilst adding superman-esque blue and yellow accents to the midsole, lace-lock and tongue. In accordance to the theme, the shoe will first be released in shanghai which will be followed by a worldwide launch. “AJ5” graphic tee’s will also be released in conjunction with the new release.
