I can guarantee you one thing: 99.9% of those that purchase this sneaker have no clue what Pro Stars is.
Pro Stars was a short lived cartoon series back in the early 90’s featuring Bo Jackson, Wayne Gretzky, and Michael Jordan. The series was on for such a short time that I would talk about it in high school to my friends and they’d act like I was crazy and claim the series never took place. Thank goodness for the Internet because there is no denying Pro Stars‘ existence now.
As for the shoes, the midsole utilizes a gradient color palette that resembles each member’s uniform colors. Each athlete wore a black suit with a different brightly colored accent. The leather on these should be nice as they are ‘remastered’ and the blacked out netting is a cool touch since it won’t yellow over time. Even though I used to watch the show I don’t think that’s enough to sell me on grabbing a pair–unless I see them in person and end up falling in love with them.
The ‘Pro Stars’ Air Jordan 5 Retro will release June 6 and retail for $190.
