As if the recently revealed special packaging, premium materials and sheer wow factor on the Air Jordan 3Lab5 weren’t enough, today we have proof they’ll be a bit more affordable than previously expected. This Saturday, September 21st release is covered from heel to toe in Elephant print, its box features a rainbow reflective geometric pattern foreshadowing further premium cross-pollinations, and its label reveals an MSRP of $225 instead of the earlier reports at $250. With this kind of heat it’s hard to imagine just $25 dollars affecting your decision of whether to cop, but it’s nice to know that you’ll have a little something left because even just with regards to Fives, there’s still a ton to cop this year. Stick with Sneaker News for all the latest developments and check out some fresh new images below.

Seriously, lets get these pieces of shit to hit outlets. Only the fuckin BIN 23 collection can be considered premium leather, everything JB has been putting out is just trash plastic and glue with no care of quality control.
I don't trust Nike's claims on premium quality materials. Unless it's sourced from a trusted source, like Horween (not saying they're the best), shit's not going to be what I consider quality, as in something that you can properly clean with leather cleaning supplies, or isn't an abominable amalgam of leather and plastic.
Only way to get any quality is to buy OG shit tbh. But now I'm just preaching to the choir.
seriously,like he said vvvvv...save your money ppl!!...im all about coppin kicks that i like,but not every damn release! dont let these blogs brainwash you into thinking you need to buy all this junk for success.this fad will be over before you kno it and you'll all be left with the same damn rubber & glue and in debt
This is literally the ugliest shoe i have ever seen to go along with those hyperflights, and they 225 which is insane.
It's cool that they're different and all, but not feeling them. Throw in a $225 price tag, and yeah, have at 'em, guys.
$224.99 + 9% tax = $245.24....still basically $250 ! Question though, are these comin' put in gs sizes?
i wonder if all those fools who liked these still want them now? 225...yeah yall can go head and drop that on this TRASH if you want ....lol
only thing sick about these is the box and the inner's.. still does not warrant a cop let alone $225 price tag. no love for these.
Ughhhh. I still think all the mesh should stay clear, and tre tongue shoulda been blue with an elephant print Jumpman instead,.....then, maaaaaaybe. Either way, these make me wanna take a shit! Lol.
$225 for something even an elephant himself would sh1t on? The Jordan sheep and resellers can buy them, all they're doing is telling JB that it's OK to put out stupid stuff like this.
@CC221 Fuckin' Church man.
@thereitizz I would doubt it given it's one of the more special releases.
@Cop em and Rock em It'd be corny as fuck, but I'd love an actual elephant jumpman lmfao.
