Typically when we show a sample pair of an Air Jordan Retro, we point out some major differences in the shoe. For this 1999 sample of the first-ever Retro release of the Air Jordan V ‘Black/Metallic’, that isn’t the case. In fact, it’s rather clear that when the Air Jordan V was poised for a return in 2000, Nike/Jordan had no intentions of changing anything about the shoe – a true re-issue to the core, complete with the last we’d see of “Nike Air” on the heel of an OG V colorway. It’s pretty rare to see a pair of the “Nike Air” Air Jordan V Retros in this crisp condition, let alone a sample pair from this era, so peep the images below and give these another thought when checking out the price from oregonsole on eBay.
