Better Air Jordan 5: “Raging Bull” or “Oregon Ducks”
Jordan Brand’s Air Jordan 5 silhouette is one of their most beloved Air Jordan Retro models to-date. Two highly sought-after pairs of the silhouette from the past have been the “Raging Bull” and “Oregon Ducks” colorways.
Released back in 2016, the “Raging Bull” Air Jordan 5 was part of an all-time classic Air Jordan Pack. The Air Jordan XX1 “Varsity Red” marked the first time Jordan Brand went with an all-over red suede signature, but the Air Jordan 5 “Raging Bull” was the first retro to model the material. This Varsity Red/Black-White issue was the brighter half of the two-shoe Toro Bravo pack that released on May 23, 2009, a shout out to Michael Jordan’s dominance with the Chicago Bulls. In addition to the smooth upper, the 23 script was included on the heels, and the midsole teeth were dipped in red – like a bull’s horns after having gored someone, maybe someone daring enough to run with the bulls in Pamplona.
As a nod to the Oregon Ducks,Ever since 2011, the Oregon Ducks have made a habit of hurting the feelings of other universities with their exclusive Air Jordans, which dress up iconic models in colors and logos associated with the school. The Nike x Oregon connection of course runs deep, with the sportswear giant’s founders spending time at the college and Tinker Hatfield, designer of your favorite Jordans, doing the same. Jordan Brand designed an exclusive Air Jordan 5 for the Nike sponsored school. Dressed in the school colors with its signature “O” logos on the 3M Reflective tongues and Ducks mascot on the heels.
