Almost as interesting as the use of all-over elephant print on a model other than the Air Jordan III is the box tag on the so-called Air Jordan 3Lab5. That’s right, the material use in this case apparently as the sneakers classified as a whole different model as far as Jordan Brand nomenclature is concerned. Next up from those models is this pair, one that ends up subtler across the top thanks to the blackout choice but a bit more head-turning on bottom thanks to the very specific “Infrared 23″ tone. Continue reading for a more complete look and then let us know if this Air Jordan 5 is one you’re looking forward to.
Air Jordan 3Lab5
Color: Black/Infrared 23
Listen to youngkay60 he obviously is the hype beast patrol. Knowing if all someone chooses to purchase is Jordan's makes them a hype beast. Now theirs rules that are set that automatically place you in the hype beast category. So anyone walking around in retro Jordan's is a hype beast and be sure to make a comment about it in public so someone like my tall ass walks up and commences to beat the fuck out of you. #fuckahater
i shouldnt have sold my pair of 3lab5's...this is definitely a dope ass concept that you ppl will regret not coppin as the years go by. this lab series is the new "bin" and "premio" pairs. you watch.
Just because a person wants to copp just Jordan's doesn't mean they're a hypebeast! Y'all dudes kill me! As long as someone is making money and want to buy Jordan's, it's their damn money! You buy what you like and allow them to do so! Whether it's Dunks, Foams, Penny's, or Lebrons buy what you like and if someone calls you a hypebeast JUST SHOOT THEIR ASS THE BIRD!!!
Straight fire, these definitely are more appealing than the first pair, somehow 225 looks less expensive...
Their only trying to compete with Nike because of the foams n the lebron 11s Jordan brand is done their running out of ideas as each year goes by just like the material they use on the retros they suck after year of the 6s I'm done

Houston we have a bad ass I bet under that black shirt u got titties don't flex on line fat ass and I didn't say if you wear Jordan ur a hypebeast I said ur only buying Jordan if u only coppin js that's a hypebeast but I guess u on here trying to get sn news likes calm down light skin penny hardaway don't get fucked up playing on line gangster or are you white if you white you looking out ta place and if you arent you close to it wyd on here you look like you should be at a tyga concert not splurging on shoes you waffle colored bastard you look like a French fry like wth are you doing here looking like you related to fat Joe you prolly his oldest son getting on here taking it out on other ppl cuz u n daddy got into a argument poor Isaac nobody gives two fucks what u got to say and you say you gone beat somebody how you gone beat anybody wit yo heart condition breath en hard from walking alone let alone fighting prolly cough up that burger u got at burger king that you sat in a line for in that art u stole from walmart fat ass n hater there is no hate for light motherfuckers who wants to be the same color as a frappuccino are u serious you look like a milk chocalate kiss fell in the wrong crowd full of kit last you look like a York peppermint with that shirt on gtfo here
nobody said anything about preventing stupid muhhfuckas from buying Jordan what was said was n I'm not quoting I'm saying what was said basically what was said is that Jordan have bad quality n their a waste of money if ur on here cussing out other ppl cuz they said they sucked which they do u are a hypebeast nobody asked for uvaptain save a hoe calm tf down anyone who just gets Jordans is a hypebeast n who the hell tells somebody to give someone.e else the bird anymore bitch u must be old u prolly got grand kids get that weak shit out ta here
U do understand Jordan brand is still nike right. U do know Jordan brand outsell every major athlete in the world on any brand in shoes right and that's just with retros. Nike maked the most bcuz they do sell the most combined but not individually. Nike and aJB diing the same thing look at foams now all these ridiculous colorways just to keep it coming but why stop if its making money. Nike and JB is grinding besides shoes like lebrons don't always sellout so fast unless their like a quickstrike even his 11's didn't atleast in my city, the steel 10s sold out in seconds and in all sizes down to infants
Another hypebeast at his finest just cuz jump man is on it doesn't mean u have to automatically go cop u must be new to the game u can't be a sneakerhead if all ur getting is Jordan with bad quality lol n calm down with all that raging bud
Homie you need to chill, every has a right to an opinion an next to that you do not know anyone's financial status here.
@BThomas1 i m not a hater. this sneakers looked bad when i first saw it and it still looks very ugly.. as simple as that. maybe for primary school kids it would be ok.
@youngkay60 If I was fat I would have a chubby face you ignorant as a jiggabo sounding fuck..Get fucked up funny shit coming from someone who started internet banging talking about doing something to me initially. Your ignorance is commended by calling me a light skin penny hardaway, who isn't obese by no means.But I'm a fatass..your trash talking or (bull shit bitching) is what I pull from the comments stated above are spewing from your philistine raised self are the plain examples of why they say stay in school and get an education. Tyga wtf you must be on that crack boy, and I spend my cash on what the fuck I want which is nice clothes and fast cars. Mad because a ( white man) has more fashion sense than your more than likely welfare receiving ass with a name like youngkay. Fat Joe's fat ass got's more cash than you or your entire incestuous bloodline you've spawned from since the creation of their existence. You obviously got lack of intellect since you seem stuck on repeat with the fat jokes , nobody even knows what the fuck your talking about in half of this hate filled rant of yours. Get your nearest community college to give you some typing pointers so maybe it's actually readable next time. I'm sure you live in proximity of more than a few. Art from walmart, wtf are you on bath salt's mixed with that rock your puffing on. Put the pipe down and learn that this tall light skin motherfucker as you call me would beat the fuck out you in broad daylight. Then if your "homies or boyz" would try something as dumb as pulling a gun the squad of killer's I mob with would toe tag the first one of them that think's their the only one's packing pistol's. And unload on all you bitch made fucks in public and leave your family making them fancy RIP shirts for your entire neighborhood to sport around all proud. Keep up the funny shit it's very enlightening and humorous.
@hozezae Their not nike their a group under nike but nike doesnt provide them with material i dont think because it would be good quality stuff but you make a very good point why stop if ppl are still gonna buy them no need to go get expensive material when you can make it out of paper mache and theyll still go pay 170 200 dollars but you make a very good point
U have a point but I think jb is just under the nike brand I dont think Nike does anything for them like material wise or anything else the first time I wore my 5s they creased like a bitch n next year I think the only js I'll touch is those 9s coming out I think everybody should just go to kds kobes lebrons or foams no point in paying 170 or even 200 for some js wit bad quality my dad bout the steel 10s for me when I was a infant n they had less creases than my 5s n that was back in 94 Jordan brand sucks as much as those bobcats mj owns man
i dont count u in that... u call every shoe wack and terrible... i dont think ive ever seen a new shoe on here that didnt have a comment from u about how horrible it is lmfao
@youngkay60 this fag still speaking, gtfoh sure the faggit manual you go by is in the collection with your hype beast one with the rules you go by to know what to do and what not to do..so you stay as homo as can be and know what you can wear..

I hear u again my but what really is good quality then. Nike gives ppl plastic like shoes for $200 to $225 plus and that's ok but jordans that aren't made the same as OG's that's price at $170 ain't. What more can u do in a $200 shoe than a &170 nothing. When u move over to the Jordan 28's thats $250 and all his other performance shoes they're just the same as nikes elite shoes are. We're paying for the name of the athlete rather than the shoe itself. A foam has a big large plastic like plate that wraps around the shoe and that's what were paying all that money for now since then its been customized with graphics on it. Yes these shoes are advanced in tech but really $225 for sneaker now. A light weight full grain leather, split grain leather or synthetic leather jordan is just as good as any shoe on the court. Ball players wear them everyday in NBA, college, high school wherever. If u notice only nike shoes keep rising bcuz their so popular and are in such demand that more has to be made to feed everyone. Soon as this craze for nikes is up prices will drop again not a lot but sum what. Just remember its only the retro line that ppl complaint about when it comes to jordans bcuz many of ppl can't reach out into other jordan shoes cuz they are dead locked in on retros. Just saying check out the new D rose's shoe, that toebox and upper is constructed of sum plastic like type of material but nobody's complaining right, especially at the price their going for but ppl look beyond it. I think the same should be said for retro jordans as well. U stay up my dude be easy
I hear u but your complaint is only on his retros. JB uses the same materials on his new shit like flywire & fuse like all these other companies do as like back in the day where everybody used leather. Every company is using the latest technology on shoes as the should bcuz that's what its for. I used to work for the finish line corporation so I know that much. You have your own personal opinions on jordans like anyone else and your entitled to that but you don't have to buy them if u feel cheated with quality. Do u even remember or if you were old to remember OG's had major quality control problems too but ppl looked over bcuz they just wanted the J's and sum didn't. U could take a shoe back then and get a refund if u had quality issues. Bad threading, crooked jumpmans, sloppy paint jobs, creased leather then sum. Nothing against u but I hear folks who complaint about the samething as u all the time but forget that OG's weren't great either. I been into J's 88 and I was 5 at the time and I'm 31 now and all my shoes is Jordans. I don't do other brands but that's my decision I buy what I want and that doesn't mean a guy is not a sneakerhead bcuz he only buy J's. I consider myself a Jordan head, kobes, lebrons, kd's, all those shoes cost a grip well the KB's & Brons, but the totally use synthetic materials and well foams so why can Jordans use them and be ok with it. I don't every single release but I do buy an average of 17 to 25 Jordans a year and I been doing since 99 when I was in high school. I got a mad collection and I love my new shit more than the old ones. The older kicks creased easy bcuz of soft leather and that was everybody's complaint then, now the leather is harder and ppl flip out about it bcuz its not buttery but sum do see their shoes last a lot longer. I'm one of those who admit I take care of my kicks like kids and therefore I don't worry about creasing but those but bitch about it for the most part don't take care of their kicks and do whatever in them and when they crease they get upset, I'm not saying that's you but I been around folks to know that by now. I'm good with my purchases of Jordan shoes bcuz I know at the ebd if the day there just shoes and nothing more than just that they don't pay my bills or anything but I do enjoy having them. Nothing is ever great all the time not even man made shoes.
@NickBartzis You do call every shoe bad though he is right, you are one of the few people i see on this site constantly bitching about how you hate a certain shoe.
We have probably different taste of what we like. There are many sneakers i like, that probably you don't check ;)
