Flip too quickly past this one and you might have confused it for the standard ‘Metallic’ colorway of the Air Jordan V. Nope, what you’re looking at is actually a sample pair that shares quite a bit in common with that OG look but has less color overall. The Air Jordan V ‘Blackout’ sample shown here is just one of many in a recent string of darker AJV’s that have been popping up, strongly suggesting that Jordan Brand was trying their best to whip up a solid Black Cat looking pair. Let us know in the comments below how they did with this particular version, a pair that’s actually up for grabs right now thanks to youbetshop on eBay.
