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. Continue reading to see more of this year’s Air Jordan 5 “Fire Red”, or whatever you want to call them, and watch for an August 31st release date.
Air Jordan V
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.
@Bigga23 Do you even know about jordans homie? why would you say that shit? im disgusted.
@iamromierome damnn you dont like the '23' ?? its from the OGs, Im glad they kept that.
@npt I'd love to see this in a black"flipped" colorway too!
@teenrapfan21 whoa whoa whoa, so you a Pacer fan now?
@PurdyFreshKicks releasing wat dummy??? these aint came out since 07
@bfresh89 Finally someone with some common sense talking. Shit i tell many people the same but they just dont expect that to be the truth
@RT5 How about stop being selfish. This happens for a reason and you gonna be thankful for tht shit one day. lol really tho.
@RT5 I agree but at the same time it lets people who missed out on today's releases move on and not give in to resellers
@TheNatural U can just buy the angelus fire red paint and paint them yourself if its such a big deal about it being TRUE "FIRE" red then
