Leading up to the June release of Transformers: The Last Knight, Mark Wahlberg sat down with Jordan Brand and came up with this super exclusive version of the Air Jordan 5.
The “Transformers” promo shoe sports what looks to be a patent leather upper in black with a grid pattern across its entirety, along with red hits on the midsole and Jumpman logo on the tongue. An icy outsole glows in the dark, while a Transformers logo is seen underneath.
In an interview with Jordan.com, Wahlberg reveals that the original plan was to create an Air Jordan 4 that could actually transform into the Jordan 5. “We sat down at the Jordan Brand Headquarters and talked to the guys out there. We wanted to make something special,” he explained. “Originally wanted to make a shoe that could possibly transform. The thought of having an AJ 4 that could possibly transform into an AJ5 had me sold.”
Its unclear why this idea never came to fruition… but you can check out the final product above.
