Yes there’s a “Fresh Prince of Bel Air” tribute Air Jordan V coming in the future, but it appears that that isn’t the only surprise colorway on the horizon. Shown here is another pair, one that sports a curious circular logo on the back, an approach we’ve seen before on the likes of the “Tokyo 23″ Air Jordan V. For now we’re dubbing it “Lakers” based just off the colors, but we’d expect a different nickname to emerge when the related theme becomes a bit more clear. Get a full preview after the jump and tell us how you feel about this interesting, LA looking Air Jordan V.
Iim a la lakers fan fo life- but im on the fence w these. In agreement w dude w the novel, but in short ; can only wear these to a game or w laker gear
ugh, no, TRASH!!! i'm sure plenty of peeps ridin' kobe's jock and hypebeasts will be all over em though.
i really hope everyone below who said no to these dont end up copping! these are clean and i like how JB is doing different colors, its getting old seeing the same shoe dont over and over in same colors as og. time to bring in some new life. i likes
That looks more like a warriors blue, but regardless these look ugly IMO. The Lakers CW doesn't translate well to everyday shoes. Unless you're going to a game, the Lakers CW on shoes is a bit wild, and that's coming from a Los Angeleno Lakers fan. I agree with Da real big infinite, them 8s that Kobe had did look dope from what I remember, but not too many shoes can sport the Lakers CW. I'm not big on Kobe's signatures from a design standpoint, but the colors would also limit how often I wore them if I had them anyways. I think casual shoes for everyday wear( I don't play ball in any of my Js so far) need to be predominantly white or black. They can have other colors on them too, but their main colors gotta be white or black for me to be comfortable wearing them in different situations. Now I've got shoes with neither white or black on them that I love, but you just can't wear them with everything.That's why I've only wore my Lebron 9 South Beaches ONCE, and that was on Easter. Sometimes I don't mind the attention, but most times I try to keep a low profile and fly under the radar, and as dope as those South Beaches are, they cause everyone to do a double take, especially when you got the pink laces in. That's how all my Lebron 9s are: people who aren't familiar with them look at you like you just landed from Pluto, which is dope sometimes, but other times I wanna smack people lookin at me funny. lol
for a moment there i thought this were the black version of the "Laney", but then i read "Lakers" lol
Don't get your hopes up if you live in the states! These are an "ASIA" exclusive! Details will hit the sneaker blogs really soon!
Now those 5s are dope... Much better then da fresh prince shit... I will cop those 5s fa sure... They should drop da Lakers 8s Kobe wore back in da day too
Them shits is horrible they still have ogs they haven't brought back n wasting material on bullshit like this
I wanna smack you for this lame ass posting! Who gives a shit about what laces you wear or who looks at your dumb ass or what kicks you had on for Easter! KILL YOUR SELF!
@MartinD44 anything else you wanna add? that post seems kind of short bruh
@Enrik @MartinD44 Oh I'm sorry reading hurts your small brain, and if I was you and I had $hit to do, I wouldn't waste my time reading someone's comment. It's an opinion. What did you expect to find in that paragraph??? The secret of life??? If you're jealous that I know how to articulate my thoughts and you can't, then advise you to take an English class. Now GTFOH
@Mendez Wow you're an idiot. Get a life bro in stead of trolling the internet all day look for comments to retaliate to. And if you TRIED to slap me, I would brake every finger in your hand you little piece of rodent filth. Stop pretending to be cool and tough online when you carry a rape whistle around your neck when walking the streets.
@MartinD44 lol, this nigga getting mad. that's the point i didn't read any part of that whole bullshit you wrote. hence i wrote "seems kind of short", making fun of your dumbass
@MartinD44 Dude, they're just sneaks.
