The Air Jordan V “Fire Red” is coming back this summer. No, not the reflector-tongued Air Jordan V in white/black/fire red that came back at the top of this year, but sneaker more often associated with that red hot nickname. The distinction between the two has definitely been a point of contention for sneakerheads in the past, with some not happy about the “Fire Red” nickname spreading to that other pair despite that color’s appearance on the OG label.

These are real nice but I'm probably gonna pass cus I just got the grapes and these don't have 3m. But who knows I might decide to cop if I have extra money.
There's two different Fire Red 5's The 3M Fire Reds & then these The Black Tongue Fire Reds. The 3M's were the 1st of the OG 5's to release in February of 1990, the Black Tongue F'Reds was the last OG 5 to release which was in November 1990.
Weird that SN likes to post upcoming jordan releases on the day that another retro released. Couldn't they just post this tomorrow or how about not at all (given that we already know this info already). Can't they just let people enjoy their retros that they just got 5 minutes ago without turning around and reading about another retro coming out.
