Introducing the Jordan Super.Fly 5

Jordan Brand continues its line of of standard on-court performers with the Jordan Super.Fly 5. The Super.Fly is the less advanced performance sneaker when compared to AJ 30 or 29. But, it’s shown to be quick seller, appearing on courts all over the world. Clippers Forward Blake Griffin is the shoe’s main endorser.

Jordan Super.Fly 5 Release Date

The fifth installment of the Super.Fly line doesn’t stray too far from the rest. The upper is a lightweight mix of mesh and Hyperfuse. The cushioning is minimal, featuring a lone Zoom Air unit in the forefoot. For support, the shoe’s inner one-piece fitting system holds the foot in place. Have a look at the images above and let us know what you think of the Super.Fly 5.

Author’s Take

The Super.Fly line has always been a little “ehh” inducing for me. Year after year, it seems like a rushed on-court model fit mostly for kids playing outdoors. Now, most Jordan basketball shoes are meant for indoor play, but the build of of the Super.Fly 5 suggests an outdoor-friendly sneaker.

Considering that Blake Griffin is going to be this model’s main endorsee, it seems strange to have the cushioning set-up focus on the forefoot. Sure, Zoom Air should make for a bouncy feel when taking off. But, this is still a massive athlete we’re talking about. I’m almost certain I’ll be passing on these.
