Air Jordan 5 – White – Black – Fire Red | New Images
The 23rd anniversary celebration has become a tradition for Jordan Brand in recent years, so while we can go ahead and chart out the releases until 2022 (which would be the Fourteen’s year to shine), we don’t want to get too far ahead of ourselves here in 2012. So here’s a look at one of the first retro drops for next year, another round of ’Fire Red’ Air Jordan Vs slated to arrive on the last Saturday in January. These look pristine as your front lawn on a snow day thanks to a lack of heel embroidery and really open themselves up to some creative custom expressions, but there’s nothing quite like an impeccable original. Have a closer look below, let us know how your ’13 shopping list is shaping up as we continue to preview next year’s hottest releases here on Sneaker News and check back with us for updates.

Now I see why people say they kinda look like the Independence Day 5s! That's why they shoulda retroed the black tongues haha
blue sole kills it, looks out of place and reminds me of the independence days. big fail imo. i was waiting for them to try blue sole on a shoe that had nothin to do wit blue...here it is. shit.
Look at these comments. if you don't like the "Fire Red 5s" don't buy them ill get them for you or someone who really wants them will get them. and these look nothing like the fourth of july 5s people are just finding stuff to complain about i bet all of you will cop them anyway so shut up with all of that "they look to much like the fourth of july 5s" . simple fix don't buy them.
I would cop if they get it right . I'll stick to my 99s even if there crumbling .. ROCK EM DONT STOCK EM .
Why a clear blue sole? Why not Smoke Gray, Black, or Clear like the ogs had. S*!+ a clear red would do. I dont even want this pair but it bugs me they still looks like the 4th of july 5s, minus the 23 and Patent Leather.
These are dope and im love'm. I just can't stand when articles say nothing compares to an original. Thats just an opinion, ppl say it too but everybody can execrise there right. These here is what what i like blue sole vs that clear then yellowish sole after a few wears. A beautiful shoe to start the year off with and i look forward all the hot retros next year with no complaints bcuz i buy & careless about others opinions
i hate how these r lookin like independence day 5's right now....Not a good look...At least they dont have the patent leather tho...
@CreatedByLeon But they do look like the Independence day 5s. The icey sole makes the black midsole look blue. It's just the placement of color, and these didn't come out as great as everybody expected.
@hozezae blue soles fade look at cool grey 11s now none are blue their gray
@DC MostHated the blue will fade upon release
@BallHard15 These are a early release pair jordan brand is gonna fix it they don't look completely blue as the 4th of july 5s and all of the jordan retros don't come out as every one expects them to
@gbnfgb my blue soles havent faded yet and they wont upon release date either. I kno they will but they look better greyish blue then pissy yellow right. All my blue sole shoes are still blue, some does have some light fading but im satisfy
@gbnfgb @DC MostHated The shoes will stay blue after release unless your running in water while playing tag Dont rock the shoe every 5 days and you'll cool The reason it's blus is so is won't turn yellow so quickly compared to clear ones
