The keyword is already on the new kicks’ name, giving the pair a cool Wolf Grey colorway that is guaranteed to get a thumbs-up from Jordan fans. The Wolf Grey colorway has a clean, but cool grey shade placed on the uppers. Jordan decided not to include any other color for the uppers to probably highlight the beauty of this new colorway, rather than getting accents that may divert the attention away from the main color. However, this doesn’t mean that the brand fell short in providing accent to the entire design.
In fact, the brand made several designing decisions that definitely elevated the look of the new release. Accenting this pair is the black color, which is used on the tongue, lining as well as shoelaces. The sole also bears this color, but with other details highlighting its uniqueness.
Air Jordan 5 Retro GS Wolf Grey has soles with three different areas possessing different details. One is the midsole on the ankle area and tip received full black color. The outsole at the toe area also has the same treatment. The midsole at the middle part of the footwear has speckled black color, which is an attention-grabbing detail that is consistent to the model’s overall style. Wrapping up the sole’s design is the icy blue sole placed strategically in specific parts of the outsole.
The tongue also has multiple details that look great for the piece. It has the transparent plastic lace lock, which may have been seen in different Air Jordan models, but still looking fresh when used in Air Jordan 5 Retro GS Wolf Grey. The same area also has the branding detail, the Jumpman logo embroidered using the same grey thread. This branding element is highlighted by somehow placing it in an embossed layer for more attention.
