During an interview with Jordans 2017, Mark Wahlberg revealed the design process behind his Air Jordan 5 Transformer PE. One of his concepts behind the design was to have the Air Jordan 4 actually transform into the Air Jordan 5. Mark Wahlberg's close ties with Jordan Brand has proven to be rather fruitful for the long-time movie star, because he continues to receive exclusive footwear that no other will ever get their hands on. He just shared new photos of the Air Jordan 5 "Transformers" PE that features a grid pattern on the iridescent upper, red Jumpman and Transformers logos, and a glow-in-the-dark outsole. This special PE, which quite honestly resembles the Doernbecher pair from a few years back, surfaced right as Transformers: The Last Knight hit theaters, a film that is said to be the final chapter in the Michael Bay-directed Transformers franchise.
In an interview published on New Jordans 2016 official blog, Mark Wahlberg revealed that his original idea for an Air Jordan PE for his Transformers film was an Air Jordan 4 that transformed into an Air Jordan 5. That sorta sounds like a loose definition of the short-lived Jordan Elements series, which featured two distinct Air Jordan models fused into one. Instead, the Jordan design team went with a futuristic blend of colors and materials, with a shiny oil-slick upper with grrid patterns and a glow-in-the-dark sole completing the look. The Air Jordan 5 Player Exclusives are one of the more rare PE to find. Since in 2006 the Air Jordan V Retrod, many Air Jordan Player Exclusives released for Ray Allen, Chris Paul Derek Anderson and many others. A outstanding find is a Original pair of Air Jordan 5 Player Exclusives made for the man himself Michael Jordan, with the number 23 stitched on the side.
Wahlberg showed the exclusive pair on Instagram earlier tonight, thanking his friends at Cheap Jordans 2017 for the gift celebrating the release of the latest film in the franchise. Reminiscent of the Doernbecher release, the shoe is styled in black patent leather bearing a grid line pattern and Optimus Prime-inspired accents. Embroidered on the heel is '84,' presumably a reference to the year the TV series debuted. The Transformers logo is visible through a glow-in-the-dark outsole. When it comes to exclusive sneakers, Mark Wahlberg is sure to be one of the names you will see at the top of the hill. Jordan Brand recently hooked him up with this Air Jordan 5 Transformers exclusive to add to his already impressive arsenal.
