One of the confirmed Air Jordan V original colorway re-issues is the “Fire Red” colorway, best remembered for the bold red hue dominating the midsole of the shoes and more recently on the feet of the ousted Rick Ross. A leaked catalog shot from back in December revealed that the 2013 version would not feature the embroidered “23” logo on the heel (something like what we’ve mocked up above) that was seen in both the original and 2006 Retro release, but who knows what may have changed during the production process? In any case, a confirmed release date of August 31st is now set, so let us know if these AJVs are a must-have for you amidst the recent unveilings of other big-ticket releases dropping around the same time.
Air Jordan V

passing on these..gonna pick up the 11s low and the end of the year retro releases..packing up my piggy bank...
Finally a release date....now I'm awaiting the release date for the playoff 8's and fire red 3's then I'm good for the year.
So 4's in july, 5's in august..... im guessing 3 in september. I missed out on the 06 pair, and i think im one of the few that prefer the 23 on the side but im cop regardless if i can come up on em.
May to August JB ain't fucking around this is when the real shits start to drop the years been hella weak for me so far
I have the 2006 pair, but they're starting to yellow a bit on the sides. I'll definitely cop these just because I love the colorway
Still got my 2006 pair, so ill pass and copp the laneys to add em to my fire reds,grapes and stealths
Now THESE are Fire Red 5's I know. Funny how all the dumbass were calling the OG 5's, "FireRed", all because SN or NK said it. Hahahahaha. Just sayin'. Know your kicks!
Still got my 06 in perfect condition, gotta buy these as a backup though, one of the best shoes ever made and best CW of all the 5's.
Not having the 23 kills these for me since it defeats the purpose of bringing this color back. Keep it OG or keep it moving.
@BoricuaSole the stealths are too dope and hard to find in my size.
@ac2slater Its should never matter
@Jrider01 shit like that i dont get. was it ever that serious lol. take pride in the fact that you have the older ones in perfect condition, leave the pair for someone else but I respect it no doubt.
@TheKid dude they are months apart. youll have cash for both.
@TheKid can I pick both?
@erickwright21 Dont help the misinformed lol
do u have a calender?? 14 Days is 2 weeks, there are 12 days until the 4th, today is April 23rd. Chill with that negative shit.
