Every time that a pair of retro Jordans comes around, people inevitably want to play the comparison game. Alright, have it-we’ve got photos lined up of the Air Jordan V “Fire Red” in both its 2006 and 2013 iterations. As you’ll be able to see after you check the shots below, there aren’t really any big differences to be had. In fact, the most noticeable of changes comes in the form of the icy blue tint that helps out on the outsole this time around. See the 2006 vs 2013 Air Jordan V “Fire Red” below and tell us which pair you prefer.

They need to start doing clear soles again! that blue sole not icy fukks up the red shoe in my opinion !
Very nice comparison. Not a big deal, but ya noticed on the 06' the sole matches the middle net and the 13' it's clear, not icy blue.
Hmm nice comparison but they left out the biggest comparison of them all......its going to be a bitch to gethese this time around lmao
if you cite "quality" as a reason not to cop these, you're fucking reachin. both releases are nice and just as similar as you'd want them to be, leaving just enough distinction for the polished sneakerhead to tell them apart. wish the 13's had the black air bubble still, that's it for me tho
I thought the tongue was all red even still I'm coppin these after these I think I'm good for the duration of the sneaker season you no until it's boot weather
These are one of my favorite shoes of all-time. My first Jordan I ever owned. I'm liking the more slimmed down version with the 2013. Everything seems to be just a little bit thinner and less squat and boot-like. The 06's have that clear sole that yellows evenly with age (which I think looks actually good on this particular shoe) and I'm curious to see what happens to these blue tinted soles with age. Hoping I can 'win' an opportunity to grab these for msrp.
I decide to finally comment on here...then somebody decides to get they feelings hurt...i would mention names but i dont entertain these internet message board faggots....but anyway...these 5's go hard and i'm coppin...im done
I'm just not liking the hard plasticy white leather on the new releases of V's. I use to be able to hoop in Retros, but now they have no give and are so uncomfortable that I can only wear them casually.
niggas be on here nit pickin details that are not even noticeable just to make it sound like they know everything about sneakers....shut ya'll irrelevant asses up...you niggas still gonna cop regardless...
All I can say is yuck to the 2013 pair... I swear the chuck posites have became my new favorite sneaker, plus the quality. Fuck these shit quality retros... Am I the only one that laughed when they saw the quality of the retro 8s?
Loved them both but the 2013 5's so far don't crack. Ima choose the 2013's everything is a good to go, hurry up August.
Fuck you, you're nothing but a scalper. I'm going to buy these at Foot Locker for $160 (retail). Anyone who is interested in Jordan shoes, I recommended you to check them out at authorized vendors (i.e. Foot Locker, Finish Line).
@Mr.CinderSix's lmao I didn't notice it until you said it haha
@bJWALKINrivers the bue tint helps them yellow slower reason every "icey" bottom has a blue tint now .
Whats wrong with you guys? Hes just asking if it comes with a box hes just making sure jb dont pull a fast one a sell them just how it is....
@GeoKaiFrai Its obvious guy is a box collector
@GeoKaiFrai This is probably one of the most ridiculous sneaker related comment I've ever seen lmao ...
@GeoKaiFrai you must b joking
@Sole_2_Sole as if you yourself are relevant? and right now, it's 4 likes btw
@Sole_2_Sole I guess you took offense. People blow sneakers out of proportion. Im 16 and already getting bored with this Jordan stuff. My next major cop will definitely be the Sport Royal foams, and Laney 5s. Taxi 12s if im in the mood for them. Otherwise, ill be copping other things air max, adidas, NB, etc...
