What many suspected about the "Fab Five" Air Jordan 5s when they were unveiled this weekend has turned out to be true: the shoes aren't releasing at retail. Nike confirmed that detail in a post on Wednesday that offers the best look at the shoes yet.

The shoe, which references the University of Michigan's legendary Fab Five squad, has a maize colorway tied to the school and other collegiate details on the tongue. There's also a "five times" hand sign on the heel that should be familiar to fans of the team.

Nike calls this Jordan 5 a gift from designer Tinker Hatfield to friends and family of Jordan Brand. Hatfield himself picked the shoe as the canvas to celebrate the team.

Michigan has another Jordan Brand Player Exclusive which has just been unveiled by DJ Khaled. Known as the Air Jordan 5 ‘Fab 5’ PE which is inspired by the Michigan Fab 5 team from the 90s.

This Air Jordan 5 features a Yellow, Black and Anthracite color theme which has a similar look to the Air Jordan 5 Tokyo release which took place back in 2011. Using Yellow across the base along with Black and Anthracite accents. Connecting back to the Wolverines is ‘Hail to the Victors’ tags on the inside of the tongue, Michigan Block ‘M’ logo on the tongue and Fab 5 hand on the heel. They also came with a special card which shows the sneakers worn by the Fab 5 or jordan 31 why not

"If you were watching college basketball in the early ‘90s, the Fab Five stuck with you," he said. "They brought a new yeezys 2017 of play. They had swagger to their game that I hadn’t seen at the college level before. They became one of the most iconic teams in college sports."
