The Air Jordan 5 “Mars For Her” was released as a large part of Jordan Brand’s spring collection. The Mars theme inspiration of the shoes is related to Mars Blackmon. This Air Jordan 5 was indeed inspired by a quirky idea related to him: “What if Mars Blackmon dunked on Mars?” Mars Blackmon is Spike Lee’s iconic character. Starred in many commercials with MJ himself.
The upper features a fiery red suede construction. A translucent panel mesh design appears at the midfoot of the shoe. The black eyelets match the fiery red laces, echoing the theme color of the upper. The laces are equipped with a yellowish transparent lace lock, silver reflective tongue and black embroidered Jumpman branding on the heel, and “23” embroidered on the outside of the heel. The midsole is black with orange and red fiery shark tooth detailing. A translucent rubber outsole with a herringbone pattern completes the upper design.
