Jordan Brand always has something great in preparation of the new school season, and with the Air Jordan V “Fire Red” releasing on August 31st, you can bet on a sea of fresh AJVs on feet during the first few weeks of school, Can’t blame ‘em, because this original Air Jordan colorway is looking as sweet as ever, with the “23” stitched on the heel like the last Retro release and the overall shape and silhouette of the shoe being a close replica of the original. These are a definite highlight of the massive back-to-school shopping season, so let us know if these are a must-have for you after you flip through the gallery below. Thanks to Joe Venuto for the photos.
Air Jordan V
i got the 06's but those thing are pretty beat up to me blue sole clear sole it does'nt matter these shoes are a thing of beauty besides after a couple of wears the sole won't be blue anymore i might just have to re-up
people be actin stupid on here. callin out niggas for mispelling. how many times peoplz txt n make mistakes w out proof reading. ALL THE TIME. everyone does it. let it go fam. SmH.
I'm gonna purposely yellow these shits, I'd rather have the soles yellow than blue. It seems like the blue soles keep getting darker and darker
My sneaker senses are beginning to suck because all these Michael Jodans starting to look identitcal lol
Damn....How much Red/White Jordon retro Nike is going to release?.. They can't think of other colorways, Like seriously.
Im sure its many other ways to stop yellowing without making the sole blue-ish. I guess they are running experiments so in the future they could bring back the clear soles and act like they did us a favor lmao.
Why is SN trying to push these as the unofficial back to school shoe? It's only going to make it harder to get because these will star to grow on the kids (if they haven't already)
I absoutely love this shoe... but with the quality jordan brand has been dishing out lately I think I'm going to pass.. jordan brand..i love u but im done with the new retros you guys are releasing..sorry.. its been fun the last 10+yrs but good things have to come to an end sometime.. and I think that time is now.. the recent grape release did it for me.. if u step it up with quality ill definitly be back for some more.. like most businesses quality should be your number 1 priority...
Its been fun jordan brand.. but I must say goodbye :(
@SkilledHooper82 It was added to stall the yellowing process.
@HeGotShoeGame AGREED! dudes acting like english teachers on a sneaker site bro LMBO
@AlexGottKicks The blue always looks darker in pics, but I hear you. Blue is cool on the Grapes, but I prefer the clear ice sole.
@JuiceMontana LOL not!!!!!! FuckN noob learn to spell "jodans"
@bigga23 um these are original colourways...He played for the Bulls
@DopeKG haha that's good. more for us who don't have a pair yet :)
SN just does this not to be dicks in my honest opinion. I sure wish they'd learn a little restraint when posting multiple posts on one shoe(I.e. lebron mvp) but more traffic through their website(comments,views) brings in the dough but you're correct by all degrees this is definitely not the back to school shoe to me
@JZrebiec2020 My grapes have a 3 by 1 inch scuff on the left shoe, came from factory that way. You can bet Nike gets a pissed off call.
same here bro @jzrebiec2020 ...im actually letting go of alll my jays except the 12's (my fav jordan sneaker) .shit just got really corny when u see the people that are on these lines nowadays.i no longer wnat any part of this "game".moving over to vans lol
@JZrebiec2020 Whats wrong with the grapes? i ordered mines
@aphillyated35 Definitely looks different, but I ain't mad at it
@AlexGottKicks i don't like the looks of kobes and why people on my jock about my opinion i mean come on they have jordans in alot of colors but im just stating my opinion.
For me bro ita all about quality quality quality!!!! And these were terrible.. u know when u buy a brand new pair of shoes and they have that new shoe smell? Well these smelled like chemicals or nail polish remover... eveything about the shoe is just cheap AF... I was just very upset with the shoe as a whole.. JB cahrges us more and more money and the quality is just gettin terrible.. and peopl dont care.. they keep buyin them.. ive been in the game long enough to see the difference in quality from 2001 to now... im just done with these new releases.. yall can have em... plus everything is bein restocked like crazy.. there is no such thing as that "exclusive" shoe.
Again these are MY opinions..
@Mister214 lol cool story bro
@JZrebiec2020 lmao who pays extra for a GR? Are they retarded
Im nowhere near done with sneakers.. They been part of my life forever.
Im just done with new general releases... and I will NEVER pay over retail for a current GR lol.
Its just crazy how much these kids are willim to pay for a general release shoe.. its outrageous. Dont get me wrong ive paid over retail for alot of shoes.. but not no GR.. I dont mind payin for a nice shoe... just in the last 2yrs alone the sneaker game has cahanged drastically!!!!.
I love JB and I always will.... im just not feelin their current sneakers... makes me sad lol
@JZrebiec2020 Yeah I respect it but personally i dont really care. If i dont get them on the internet the first day thats it because now you're talking $200-$300 and i feel $160 is the perfect price. Knowing that the quality has lessened, i make sure to take care of them even more. itll be a day where ill stop buying jays for sure, other older guys just dont know when to quit. Ive kept my sneakers from last year fresh till this day, lets see if that can keep up 5 years from now lol. I dont complain about quality because at the end of the day they are just sneakers and im aware that its other companies out there.
