We haven’t seen anything new from the Jordan Prime 5 since Joe Johnson’s Atlanta Hawks were eliminated from the 2011 NBA Playoffs, and considering that the last retail release was over six weeks before that, these new models are long overdue. The Prime 5 is quite obviously a mashup of the Air Jordan Alpha 1 and Air Jordan V, but this latest trio takes cues from another Jordan Brand hybrid with its use of a dark upper accented by a single vibrant shade. Instead of grey, though, as was the case with the CMFT 11 ‘Stealth Pack’, this threesome of Prime 5s (retailing at $115 a piece) is done with black as the base for their Infrared, Varsity Royal and Sonic Yellow accents. You can see more of each pair after the jump and let us know which pair(s) you plan to grab once they become available on November 5th.
STOP IT JB!! ...just stop wasting money on this BS. People need food in other countries and the US. But you guys are making ugly shoes like there is no tomorrow? Send that ugly sh*t to Africa or the poor people in cambodia or something. They actually need shoes.... no matter what they look like
Jordan Brand is just like the automotive industry. Some of their consumers can afford to splurg on a bugatti, some on a camry and some on a chevy aveo. Their just putting out shoes to suit the needs of their customers and JB's pockets. Just be patient eventually your kicks will come down the assembly line.
Who the fuck buys and wears this shit and why in the fuck is jb throwing money out the window on such shit, just so they can gain it back from us by charging 15-20% more on retro releases??? Get the fuck out of here with that bullshit!
The only problem is the fact that these "aveos" cost just as much as "bugatis". I could understand it if these fusions cost way cheaper thatn retros, but the fact is they cost just the same if not more in some cases.
Who would buy these?People who like this shoe.LIKE ME. I got a pair of these Primes (Lasered Bred QS version). Why did buy em? COZ I LIKE EM. HATE ON ME ALL YOU WANT,BUT I BUY WHAT I LIKE, NOT WHAT OTHERS LIKE.Fuck it if you think sneaker heads are just people who buy RETROS ONLY. SNEAKERHEADS ARE PEOPLE WHO LOVE KICKS AND BUY WHAT THEY LIKE, NOT WHAT THE HYPE DICTATES.
