Unboxing and Closed Look: Jordan Why Not.5

When I first saw the pictures of Jordan Why Not.5 on the Internet, I was taken aback at it because it looked as if it were my old companion. Previously its leaked photos have also attracted great attention of many sneaker fans. Now that the pictures of the shoes have been released by the official, it is essential to get some knowledge of the shoes before deciding whether to buy it.

There are four colorways of the shoes, all of which, on a personal note, are very showy. But on the other hand, this is one of the aspects that distinguish the Jordan Why Not shoes from others.

The brand-new Jordan Why Not Zer0.5 applies a variety of materials such as organdy and suede to the upper, ensuring breathability while at the meantime enhancing durability.

Although I myself have several pairs of the Jordan Why Not shoes, I was, like many fans, shocked by the bombastic overall appearance of Jordan Why Not.5. There in the shoes are quite a few jagged, asymmetrical designs, which alone are able to make the shoes stand out.

Over and above that, the shoelace system is reinforced with straps, heel TPU, etc., so as to ensure that the foot is firmly attached to the shoes during movement, thus providing professional protection and stability.

The Zoom Air cushion on the front part of the midsole ensures excellent cushioning performance whenever there are breakthroughs, emergency stops or shooting.

According to the official news, each of the four colorways will be released successively between February and April at a price of $150, which is set to excite many fans once again.


These four colorways are all eye-catching and recognizable. Apart from their appearances, the upgraded setups in the shoes will also stand the shoe owner in good stead, and might even help reverse the final outcome. This, I think, should be a temptation that is hard to resist.

Unboxing: Jordan Why Not.5

Previously I had a splendid impression of Jordan Why Not.4, and with great expectation I bought this Jordan Why Not.5, hoping that this new sneaker would still be my able helper on court. Here is the brief introduction of the shoes’ setups.

Regarding a shoe’s appearance, it has always been a matter of opinion. Therefore, here I don’t want to express too much personal opinions about the appearance of this Why Not.5.

Compared with Why Not.4, this Why Not.5 is lighter, weighing about 410 grams. The shoelace system also helps make the shoes stand out because of its convenience. Besides, the design of the shoelace system further enhances the shoe’s wrapping performance. When I first wore the shoes, I felt as if I were wearing a pair of particular tight socks that fit tightly to my feet.

The material of its vamp is the sort of lightweight one commonly used in running shoes, which partly accounts for the shoe’s lightness. Actually, the material feels very comfortable and is also friendly to our skin. As is shown in the picture, there are quite a few air holes in the vamp, thus ensuring superb breathability.

In the arch there is the TPU for offering support and anti-torsion, which is common to all the Why Not shoes. The grains of the outsole and the cushion setups of the midsole are both upgraded. In terms of the outsole, it is made of relatively hard rubber, XDR, which, according Nike, can be relatively durable. But with respect to its grip performance, I don’t want to rush to a conclusion for the shoes need some more testing. As for the cushions, the front parts of the soles are installed with a large ZOOM AIR so that the wearer can feel terrific feedback on the forefoot.


In a word, Jordan Why Not.5 does have some excellent tech while its overall performance requires some more testing. If you are now considering buying this Jordan Why Not.5, just stay tuned for more performance reviews about it.
