While we’ve already gotten a couple of different looks at Mark Wahlberg’s custom Air Jordan 5 Transformers, the man himself now gives us the background story behind this shoe. Wahlberg recently sat down with the Jordan Brand team and was interviewed for their official blog.

What was it about the AJ 5 that made it the perfect shoe for a Transformer?

“The AJ 5 was the perfect fit because in my opinion, the AJ 5 has a futuristic look to it. It kinda looks like a shoe that can transform.”

Can you tell us about the process for choosing the 5 and designing the shoe?

“We sat down at the Jordan Brand Headquarters and talked to the guys out there. We wanted to make something special.

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.”
