The Air Jordan 5 Racer Blue is a new colorway for the new year, and it’s beautiful. The color blocking will, of course, look familiar, but that’s a good thing. It’s difficult to go wrong with the right color blocking, no matter what colors are used. There’s nothing really too special here, but they do give off Nightwing vibes, so that’s a cool touch for those who know. If you end up picking these up, we hope that you like them, because we sure do. It’s one of the best Jordan retros.
