Once dubbed the Black Laney, today we have another look at what’s actually the Air Jordan 5 Shen, though the palette will make it clear how it picked up the former moniker. (Shen is another name for Shanghai so, while many are calling this the “Shanghai Shen,” that name proves quite repetitive; I’m sticking with “Shen.”)
Whatever you want to call it, the shoe is an absolute beast, with black suede through the upper sitting atop a perfectly contrasting blue-and-gold midsole. The character for “Shen” appears on each heel, while blue branding completes the style.
At the moment this one is scheduled for an exclusive Shanghai launch, but the prevailing rumor is that we may see a worldwide release in the coming months. Stay tuned for updates.
