Did you pick up a pair of the Air Jordan 5 “Laney” this weekend? If so, can you spot all the differences between that pair and the original 2000 issue? Filling you in is this set of photos that juxtaposes the two releases. The differences aren’t too numerous but they are noticeable. The Jumpman on the back end went from blue to black, the “Air Jordan” hit under the tongue saw its colors switched around, and the lacelock piece sports a bit more color this time around. Continue reading for a complete gallery that places the two next to each other and then tell us in the comments which Jordan 5 “Laney” you prefer.
these are way to fresh I had to get them I could understand peolpe saying that these are overrated but I live in the bay area and these are the warriors colors so that's why I love them as for the comparison to the og's the only thing i wish they would have kept the same is the blue jumpman on the back which is not that big of a deal other then that I think the quality on these are the best I've seen in a long time
Honestly, I'm not a fan of post 2007 retros. But these look really good. Seriously, look at the quality of the embroidery. I think for the first time in a long time JB actually improved on the original.
Another Beautiful Retro 5 that came home with me Both of the pairs are Great but for most people they prefer OG's Over Retro's l Like the Retro Tongue better than the OG's They still have that Beautiful Crinkle Leather that on the True Blue 3's an Majority of Spiz-ikes
I have 4 pairs in total. 1 pair for me and 3 pairs to sell.They are all size 11.5 and I'm selling them for 220.If interested reply back to me and we will go from there.
who didnt cop obviously missed, i mean it took them 13 years to re-release so u guys r gonna have to wait for a classic colorway to retro again
@BVSEDJESUS . # based god. you are tripping theres no big difference at all butchered?? hahah your a hype
@Alejandro8675 If you think they're must haves and need to have every colorway that jb releases. These are a whatever colorway imo. The back story is cool n all, but they'll just be another pair of predominantly white 5s. I don't know about ya'll but if you live in the real world, collectin Js puts you in borderline hoarder status unless you seriously ballin and can dedicate a whole room to shoe boxes.
@Alejandro8675 Thats if you're broke. I copped 2 pairs at resell price cause i can afford it. I let all you hypebeast grunts do the work for me to cop.
U never sed it better lmfao. gotta love wakin up late bakin and forgeting I got sum scrubs doin my dirty work.
@MrNolimit23 @maxbags @MartinD44 @Alejandro8675 I should have finished that statement by saying I just don't have room for these. If you're sayin someone's stupid b/c they don't have the same opinion as you, then you're gonna have problems for the rest of your life aside from hoardin js. I hope you're young and not an "O.G." Maybe you can learn MrNolimit b4 its too late. As for these and the green glows, I got no space for em. IMO the green glows are a wack colorway, but I won't knock anyone for liking em.
@Jpastor hype beast I know about them! got them buying all the shoes that's popular
