The Air Jordan V is getting a little crazy in the near future. There’s that GS version donning a strawberry red upper and then of course the all-over elephant print look that caused quite a stir when the images first popped up. Fear not though, as at least on OG look is in store: the white/black/red that last popped up as part of the Countdown Pack. To help you out with the long wait we’ve spotted the first teaser shot of the sneakers, one that shows that they will arrive without the ’23’ hit on the side. Click through for the full photo and let us know where you rank this Air Jordan V release in terms of the 2013 retros we already know about. And as always, stick with Sneaker News for more photos ahead of the January 26th release date.
Air Jordan V
Best JV colorway!!! Thanks for taking the "23" off! They look way cleaner & less childish. Wore my '99 yesterday & the mesh is cracking :-( Quality up JB Big Dix
my favourite jordan and shoe overall of all time I just bought some cdps but I might cope these too. The soles are sooooo icy
i copped some independence day 5s a few months ago and theyre pretty similar so this would be a no cop for me but it would be a must if i didnt have the others
You all know DAMN well there will NOT be any "Nike Air" on the back! Quit reaching and get your imaginations in check with reality!
I took a picture of my 07' Metallic V's together with my CDP V's from back then and the tongue on the metallic black shined wayyyy brighter then the CDP ones. Looking at the photo, the tongue's looking dull as hell.
First j my parents bought me when I was 8 these and the grapes. Wonder if I can talk them into buying these because after this fall I'll be in bankruptcy court with all the heat coming out. I am kinda glad to see they dropped the 23 takes me back in time. Now all we need is the air on the back and a #12 jersey.
First pair of Js I ever had and there was no 23 on the side. Which is exactly what I was hoping for.
Stop with all this nike air nonsense. Nike air or not yo jordans wont go any harder then they normally would. Yes it would be nice to see but its not a deal breaker. Regardless these will be copped by everyone
Kicking myself in the ass for not copping the Metallic Silvers, my grails. Not digging the icey sole, but who knows.
I know they won't have the "Nike AIr" I can hope though the jordan 5 is a very nice shoe though so happy to hear the Grapes will be returning in 2013!
THEY DON'T HAVE THE 23 ON THE SIDE? THAT IS WHAT MAKES THE SHOE IN MY OPINION...I THINK THEY LOOK WAY BETTER WITH THE 23
i was gone say no to these ( i was hoping for the other fire red 5s) but that sole may have changes my mind i love how icey that sole is
nike air is on the back and im copping 2 this time. still have the 99's and the sole is crumbling to helll
Hopefully the royal 1s start a trend with bringing back Nike air, which would make these great. But for now, I'll pass on these even though they're fresh
@VaSneehed Who knows... they put on the blk/royal 1s being retrod
