WearTesters brought you a peek of the Jordan Super.Fly 5 here just two weeks ago from an overseas boutique, but tech specs were just speculation and colorways and release dates were not available. Fortunately, the shoe was chopped and deconstructed by Chinese site fastpass. Today, Jordan Brand sends official release info to us so we can give it to you, the interested parties. So, here we go…
Officially, the cushioning is forefoot Zoom only with a Phylon heel. The upper is lightweight mesh (like the Super.Fly 4 reviewed here) with fuse areas around the heel (looking like the Melo 12 a little) and the ankle collar/fit pads coming back (again, like the Melo 12, which in this case isn’t bad). A full-length inner sleeve completes the upper, while the outsole is a one-piece solid rubber with XDR options available overseas.
The Super.Fly 5 will release officially overseas on June 30 and globally on August 1. For more images and info visit the Nike News site.
Will they perform as well as the Super.Fly 4? Only one way to know — stay tuned…
