Miami-based music producer DJ Khaled recently unveiled his new Air Jordan 5 signature sneakers known as the "We The Best" collection, leaving many fans wondering when we might see Nike announce a release date.

It's no secret that DJ Khaled is a massive sneaker fan, with his huge selection of kicks previously valued at $8 million; however, his Jordan 5 range isn't the only music industry release in the works.

Alongside the "We The Best" Jordan 5s, Billie Eilish is due to debut a new Air Force 1 High, while Drake's NOCTA brand is also teaming with Nike for a collaborative release later this year.

When Is The DJ Khaled x Air Jordan 5 We The Best Release Date?

Although recently announcing their upcoming arrival via his Instagram, DJ Khaled made sure to keep the details surrounding his collection's release a secret.

In the post's caption, he only went as far as revealing that his Air Jordan 5 range will see a global release at some point in 2022.

With more information due to be revealed in the future, make sure you check back in with us as we'll be keeping this article updated with the latest announcements as and when they arrive.

DJ Khaled x Air Jordan 5 We The Best Collections Design

In total, six new Air Jordan 5 colourways were previewed in DJ Khaled's announcement, all of which incorporate some form of pastel tone either across the uppers or as finer details.

However, despite six sneakers being previewed, only four of the colourways have been revealed in more detail thus far.

This suggests to us that the turquoise and dark blue iterations seen above may be the friends and family releases DJ Khaled mentioned in his Instagram post.

That said, these Salmon Pink and bright purple iterations were among those that were revealed in more detail, which already look to be strong contenders for some of the best Jordan 5 colourways around.

Both pairs feature leather uppers, mesh cutouts, and contrasting coloured details such as blue speckled midsole accents and black heel counters.

You also get the famous phrase "We The Best" embroidered onto the heels, while the interior linings include "Keep" and "Going" on each foot, styled out with quilted material surrounding the patches.

The "We The Best" moniker also appears underneath the translucent rubber outsoles to complete DJ Khaled's signature details for this collaborative effort.

It's unclear whether this collection of shoes will fall within this price range, so make sure you stay tuned to find out more right here.

Where To Buy The DJ Khaled x Air Jordan 5 We The Best Collection

One of the first places you'll likely find a listing for the "We The Best" collection will be at the Nike store, presumably under the new releases, basketball, or Jordan subsections.

We'd recommend signing up for the push notifications as soon as the listing goes live on the SNKRS page or App so you're completely prepared for their upcoming arrival.

You could also keep an eye on the resale market at StockX once the sneakers drop if your initial attempt at purchasing a pair through retail is unsuccessful.
