Before we take a detailed look at the Air Jordan 5 Retro Aqua, let’s head over to the secondary market to look at a similar pair to estimate the “Aqua’s” resale value.

Air Jordan 5 Retro Racer Blue

  • Retail Price: $200

In 2022, Jordan Brand released a bunch of Air Jordan 5s, including a few very memorable ones, such as the Air Jordan 5 Green Bean and the Air Jordan 5 Retro Racer Blue.

This specific version departs from the typical leather materials used on the top by covering most of its base layer with suede and coating it in a solid black color.

The tongues are fashioned with a luminous coating, and netting that is often see-through is present on the mid-foot and under the shoe laces.

The Jumpman emblems on the tongues and lower heels, the lace toggles, and the midsole components are just a few of the sneakers with “Racer Blue” highlights.

 The treading is given an icy blue hue, and the spiky decorations on the midsoles come with a covert paint job.

These sneakers are not insanely profitable, but the average selling price is $45 over the retail price. The Jordan 5 Retro Aqua will likely have a slightly higher resale value due to potentially being more limited.

These latest sneakers might be a bit more profitable due to being a PE release.

Jordan Brand often recreates certain colorways for the general public in order to appeal to its followers who are interested in player exclusives.

This has happened before, most notably with the Air Jordan 5 “Apple Green,” which was evocative of a very rare Oregon PE which is insanely profitable and currently resells for whopping high prices. It has now happened once again with the recently-discovered Air Jordan 5 “Aqua” hue.

Unofficially paying tribute to one of Chris Paul’s exclusives, the sneakers are releasing this January. The mid-foot is designed with transparent netting, and the nubuck uppers are constructed with solid black backgrounds.

The different Jump Man emblems, internal lining, and treading get colorful “Aqua” hits, while the midsole spikes receive golden yellow coloring.

Both of these accents represent the experienced point guard’s playing days with the then-New Orleans Hornets.

Ice blue outsoles and matching midsoles finish off the design.
