The Air Jordan 5 Moonlight / Oreo is one of the weirdest named Jordan releases of the year. And there are more weird names coming before 2021 ends. This specific colorway was originally released in 2013 and was simply named “Black/White.” The internet called them Oreo for obvious reasons. Now the brand is trying to attach a story that isn’t true or even remotely interesting to this colorway. And that’s honestly just straight-up strange.
Check out Chris’s thoughts on the AJ 5 Moonlight / Oreo in the video and article.
