Mark Wahlberg of Transformers fame (and I guess some other things) is a long time Jordan Brand representative, so he gets special low (really low) run versions of the iconic sneaks. Like 1 of 5 or 1 of 1. For his Transformers The Last Knight wrap, he asked the Jordan brand for a celebratory pair of kicks. He eventually got an Air Jordan 5 in black patent leather with a grid pattern similar to OG box art, Optimus Prime colored speckles on the shark teeth, The number 84 embroidered on the heel where 23 would normally be, G1 box art on the insoles and the Autobot logo on the sole, which is also glow in the dark. It’s said that he originally wanted the Air Jordan 4 to Transform into the Air Jordan 5, functionally. I think I would have fainted if that happened.
Thanks to IG user English Sole, via Sneakerfiles, we now have a look at another exclusive Air Jordan brand Air Jordan 5 PE featuring a Transformers theme. This is a slightly different version without the patent / gloss on the main kick, different speckles on the shark teeth, and no black on the tongues, they keep the original reflective one from the AJ5. While it’s a good chance that no one reading this will ever own this or anything like it that is not customized, it’s still cool to see the TF brand represented on some OG kicks. You can check the official pair Mark Wahlberg actually received when released via Sneakerfiles here.
Read on to check the new shots!
Removed the faux signature and swapped in shoelaces.

I made the laces switch for the NC 5's. Looks good to me! I switched them out with some blue/black Mid 1's, which doesn't look too bad.

It's a colorway I've wanted for the longest but I also own the 13 gym red, bred and my ultimate favorite the black cats. Two of which I've barely even worn. These, I've literally obly wore them once and managed to get a crease on the toe box area. That was a long day in the shoes though as I wore them to my son's high school graduation ceremony last June. They basically are the schools colors. That probably wasn't the best day to wear them though. A whole lotta standing around in a brand new shoe not named retro 11. I'm sure the 11s coulda handled it just fine I feel.
The 13s are nice but they definitely lack some cushioning imo.
'bout time 6s showed up again.

Last out of Reimagined arrived. Doesn’t have the mixed 88 with thicker print but has matching thicker. All my pairs match. Dead stocking the 88 print for sure.

I got the Lucky Green version of the J 2's off the SNKRS app about a month ago. I'm going to switch out those white laces to green, so it pops. I know I have extras lying around. Just have to search through shoe boxes for them.
