We’ve expected for a couple of years now that 2013 would be a big one for the Jordan 5. We’ve also counted an all Elephant print colorway among the releases for this 23rd anniversary for some time now, but today we see a new detail that suggests further expressions of a core theme. The Air Jordan V ‘3Lab5’ gives us a new nickname via sample tags and shows off a periodic table-inspired embossing on the inner tongue (lined in premium leather) that references ‘El’ as the third element, synonymous with 1988’s AJIII. Will we see a 4 ‘Ce’ with the IV’s Cement Grey speckles, or perhaps the V’s own ‘Sh’ with the sharkstooth on another numbered Jordan? Stick with Sneaker News to find out where this Lab series is going, and most importantly for now, the 3Lab5’s release date.
Air Jordan V
Cement Grey/Gamma Blue-Black
hot, wax lacers, looks like some premium leather on the inside. shit is fire! i got my elephant skins and im a get these. im a get these for sure!
THESE ARE HIDEOUS....imo Need a little more solid colors, and take that elephant print off of the mesh. Geezz
Jumpman on back needs to be gamma blue also, like the tongue and netting on midsole and tongue needs to be clear. Then,....mayyyyybe.
Cool concept, nice material, but ugly shoe IMO. Love 3s and 5s but this doesn't work. Hopefully they'll be another of this similar concept with the same quality but much nicer
