Can you imagine this original colorway of the Air Jordan V without that beloved 3M tongue treatment? Or without the see-through lace lock accessory? Shown here is an incredible prototype pair of OGs, an image lifted from a sales brochure that was floating around ahead of the shoes’ original release. Other differences include a switched up set of teeth for the midsole, a different build for the collar, and the inclusion of just three holes on the top eyelet piece. Tell us if you like the look of this crazy prototype version of the Air Jordan V dug up by Phase2, and let’s pray that they might one day surface.

Love this. The IV style tongue tag, the smaller teeth on the midsole--a step away from the tweaks that made it iconic.  Thanks for the post.

All I know is that I'm just glad they made the needed revisions before they released the final result. But the prototype don't look too shabby either, as a matter of fact.  Still pretty nice.


Thanks for sharing this piece of history with us!

They look like they came a long way before the final model, that's a nice peace of sneaker history.
