Alright, so it looks like the 2013 version of the Air Jordan V “Fire Red” will have the 23 embroidery on the side after all. You’ll recall that the first catalog shots suggested otherwise, but this initial look at the retro confirms that Mike’s number does indeed show up on the heel area. Other than that the Air Jordan V “Fire Red” looks just like you’d imagine an Air Jordan V in the year 2013 to look, complete with the slightly blue icy sections on the bottom. Stay tuned after the jump for full images of the Air Jordan V “Fire Red”, which releases on August 31st, 2013.

Already got the 3M Fire Reds but these might be a pickup also. Might just go ahead and cop all the OG colorway 5's this year.
i consider myself lucky for not hooked into buying AIr Jordans and saving my hard-earned $$$ to my needs. One representation: my AJ11 Concords, that I WEAR REGULARLY, is enough for me to say i had them. But I get my enjoyment looking and appreciate all their releases and read all comments from loyal patrons.
i have the 4 and i am not happy there' s a crack in the black seem and it's pealing like what's that about we pay all this money for what garbage
People want clear soles, as if both of them won't turn yellow. If they had put black soles there would be a national outcry.
Anyone crying about the sole color needs to get a life. These shoes are just as fire as they ever were. I had them as OG in 06 and I will get them again. Personally I prefer any ice that isn't clear, whatever delays the yellowing I am on board with. I wish they would start making more 5/6/11's with Red/Green/Blue/Black ice. Anything that doesn't yellow I can keep forever. I still got my 01 Concord/Spacejam/Bred 11's and the Bred's are the only ones that I still wear because they don't look like piss.
Again why i say these maybe samples is bcuz look at the lace locks there black and not red. If these are the finished product i still love it plus i still got my red lace locks from 06
There should be no complains on this shoe on anything but it is personal preference. These are dope with 23 on it or not or with the clear or ice blue clear soles. The thing that gets me is years back when JB gave the GS size models blue tinted soles and ours the adult versions were clear what happened, ppl bitched & complain then JB gave adults blue soles. Now that we got blue soles ppl still complain and yet again why cant ppl ever be satisfied. Its still to early to tell but these could be samples and the final product not might have 23 on it
yea they definitely need to go back to using the clear sole, they always tryna revamp some shit, keep it all the way OG, stop tryna improve on some shit that dont need improvement.
yea cry about a blue sole as if it will stay blue forever smh they keep the 23 and yall still complaining lmfao clowns
Seeriously, whats the point of all these colorways, nitpicking all the detail, when they just go and put UGLY BLUE SOLES ON THEM! Give me an icy CLEAR sole... and just let it go yellow some day. I dont care. Better than having BLUE attached to a FIRE RED cw. Grapes, with BLUE soles. JUST STOP JB!
@Sneeky ok cool,
Are u not aware that the same thing happens with the OG's, mines cracked just as.quick back then as they do today. We paid all that money then and had to deal with it.so we just gotta deal with it todau
@This_A_Everyday how is slowing down the yellowing ppl complain about before not a bad thing. yall complain about one thing then when jb trys to fix it yall cry and say its not like how it was before -___- at the end of the day the soles will yellow regardless of cleary or icy blue ppl need to stop crying
@caseyflinders Shut the phack up
@LUX09NC i also agree, no 5s shoulda ever had the 23 on the side to begin with i say
