So Sneaker News gave you all the info you needed to know about the Air Jordan 3Lab5 tanks to our first SN Select piece, but here’s a new bit of info to keep your eyes on. For this $250 Retro release, Jordan Brand will introduce this snazzy box, which features a prismatic finish on a geometric graphic on the exterior, which is anchored by the revered Jumpman logo at the center of the top lid. This one angle doesn’t reveal much more, but perhaps this box will be a slide-out package with some extra details in the interior to connect with the Elements concept. Thoughts on this new box? Check it out below and let us know what you think.
I see people hating, but these some dope ass shoes. They will look very nice on your feet and of course with the right fit
I think some guys truly 'believe' owning any pair of Jordans is a status symbol. I will agree to a certain extent if you were referring to OG pairs some...some of the recent retros...but please fellas & ladies do not think for one second that buying a pair of Jordan V 3Lab5s that anyone will think any higher of you...THEY WILL NOT (unless they're 17 yrs or younger)
lmao 250....I like the idea because its different but its needs some different colors...looks like a womans shoe
I really really hate the price, but I honestly love the shoe. If I have the money for them I'll get them. No Hype
pathetic ...I get niggas being slaves to the pussy, but dont be a slave to JB too.....just buying anything with the fuqkin logo on it? shoes is DIRT!
If they used the box's graphics on the shoe itself, it would look better IMHO...
But to each his own. Yo money, yo choice...
I said what I said and I'm leaving it as that! I felt it was a shot at me and I responded!!! Point blank end of story!!!
No one bitched about it but you, no one asked you to reply to what I said, I didn't call your name out I was actually was talking about other people who said they didn't like them but will buy them anyway. If you're buying them just because then you're stupid, if you like them buy them. Taking offense to something that didn't apply to you...
You people have no taste, these are ugly crap and if they didn't have a Jumpman and they were some Supras you would all say they're garbage. Buying them because they're "collector's items" is stupid , you have some money to waste. If you don't like them why the hell are you buying them, go find something better to spend $250 on.
These are copped!!! Fucc what you heard...whether I sit on them or rock em, these are definitely a collectors item!!!
Ugly yep they Ugly, but I'd still cop for the collection because this is first time they've done this on a 5 so hey it could be a one time thing and valuable in the future ( and no I dont sell my shit ).
250 dollars for an ugly pair of all-elephant shoes. Ugh. The only thing that should have elephant print all over it is an elephant. Next we'll have a pair of all-over cement shoes because of the 3's, and an all over black patent shoe because of the 11s. Maybe if we're lucky we'll get an all over shark teeth pair as well to represent the 5s.
@mikeysm23 The first is step is acceptance! We are all slaves to the addiction! #SneakersAnonymous Haha!
@LvShawn it's a general release...think of it like trying to get the Retro 3 '88s...in that it will be very difficult but you will eventually get 'em Saturday morning
Dude, I'm buying because I generally and aesthetically like the damn shoe! I have money to spend and if I want to spend it on these (using my military discount) then guess what, I damn well will!!! Collectors item or not, when you're a grown ass man, spend your money as you please! Men do what they want, boys do what they can!
@EvilRamen Problem is people who buy these wont wear them, they'll sell or sit on them.
@EvilRamen and i'm gonna point and laugh when I see you in crutches
@JackSpain those category of niggas ain't me for one. I'm 22, bouta graduate college in the fall and and start my own path and my own life. never been a bitch either, you can come to DC and find that out if you feel. you like the shoe, hey DO U FAM, I just don't see what you see in them and that's the honest truth
Dude...I responded because he said my name no offense but y'all guys are funny! Sit behind a keyboard all day saying whatever and don't expect any type of responses!!!
You don't have to respond to him, simple as that... Go rock your shoes nobody gives a damn about your spending choices stop getting offended over what people say over the internet.
Why do I have to respond to Lil shits like you? I know plenty of want to be grown ass men with a million fucking kids and staying with mom! I can say what the fuck I feel because I'm letting little fucks like you know that I can choose to buy what the fuck I feel because I have my money to do so! You spend your money on your little fuck offs and I spend my money on whatever shit I please!
I will rock my kicks and would love for a sap sucka like you to step on them or even to say it to my face!!! Kids like you talk a lot of trash behind a keyboard and monitor but want bust grape in public!!!
@JackSpainall the rapping you doing, but nobody really gives a fuqk about your house, car, or job. if you a "grown ass man" i would hope you had all those things....fuqkin lame...smh
any man i see walking with these shyts on, is a clown, point blank, idgaf...everybody has their own taste, but these kicks are beyond TRASH!
Not a problem lil one! Got my own house, car, and a fucking job!!! You spend your money on what you feel and I'll do the same!!! Don't bitch about what I spend my money on
@fly li so i guess when a group of bitches staring and giggling, talking about the shoes you going put your hands on them too huh?
Nah actually its the principal ... what would you do if you saw someone laugh point and laugh at a pair of shoes you busted your ass to get
