Elephant print has been the signature detail of the Air Jordan III for over two decades, but never has a Retro made use of the funky material like this upcoming Air Jordan V. We first laid eyes on the Air Jordan V “Elephant Print” last year, but this latest update marks the first detailed look on this upcoming Fall 2013 release; along with the tonal elephant print upper, this Retro V uses an aqua blue accent on the Jumpman logo on the tongue and lacelock, with a black leather lining giving these a Premium feel like the Air Jordan III “Black Flip” of 2011. More below, so take a look and stay tuned to Sneaker News for all your Air Jordan release updates.

This is a terrible shoe, but will still sell out instantly, we all know that. They will make these "limited" im sure. And I must admit, when they do, even tho i hate this shoe, I will be one of those people in line.*

* Actually if they are "limited" i wont get them, because West Virginia doesnt receive limited shoes. I have had to miss out on every retro 1 this year because of this reason. Is there any other states that do not receive limited shoes besides West Virginia ?

WTF!! Was the elephant print on clearance. These are horrible and they did it to a 5. Why cant JB just make more retros so that people can actually get them wihout having to camp,try to add to cart online for an hour,getraffle tickets and wait in line all morning. These guys are getting ridiculous!!!

I really like these. No i'm not a hypebeast. I've been buying jordans for half of my life. (I'm only 23). But I could definitely rock these. I already see how I'm going to wear them. They are different & I will definitely be kopping these so I can WEAR them. No reselling over here

"I'm sure the hypebeast I'm sure the hypebeast" fool you are a hypebeast yourself or you wouldn't be commenting. That word is played out by 5 years

they should have a 23 on the side and the jumpman in the back needs to be colored

monstrosity. There's a reason why Tinker Hatfield never used this concept. His eyes work

They coud have made these like the nubuck 12s

I'd say make the nets either black or that teal color like the jumpman and it would look better. I think it's a cool shoe, I'd get them for the right price. But surely it would be limited and probably go for well over 2bills so I'd be out of that game.

Yeah these are UGLY, but i bet the hypebeasts will still buy these up simply because it has a jumpman on it. I bet this will be a limited release because I can't see a ton of people (other than the hypebeasts) wanting this shoe.

3 steps to greatness: 

1) change the side "netting" to solid white leather with black strips/perforation lines... in other words remove the elephant print there

2) make the lace locks on the sides either solid black or blue.. probably black

3) keep the elephant print on the tongue, but change the white to 3m

then it'd be a pretty dope shoe

Like these lol, black jeans, sky blue tee, etc. although I think the jumpman on the heel should have been that blue as well.

I heard these might be releasing in a pack with the gamma blue xi's.

I'm not mad at the concept (though I find them ugly), but I would think these would sit for a minute...

So confused by these.  I guess JB isn't drug testing their employees.

Wouldnt be surprised if they decide to make the outsole and laces elephant print too...

The mesh on the side should be clear like the mesh on the tongue. Could've been a really dope concept. They dropped the ball on these.

I like eccentric shoes so i would cop them but they need to tone down all the damn elephant print though

i bet they give these a "premium" price tag based on the leather lining and no plastic mesh...i bet theyre 180 or 200

Them hipsters gonna love it. To me they're plain ugly. Would have been a great chance for JB to create a really nice and clean colorway, but no, we get this crap on the 23rd anniversary ...
