Does this Air Jordan 5 look familiar? At first glance they may appear to be the underrated “Burgundy” colorway of the sneaker, but this is actually a custom take on that design. The “Violet” remix from Maggi features premium Italian suede panels of the titular shade across the upper, some leather piping that separates those panels, and extra stitching across the midsole to reinforce the build. Take a more in depth look at these custom Jordans with us after the break and then give us your two cents on the Air Jordan 5 “Violet” Customs by Maggi in the comments.
@sneakernews I want these
@sexts101 Oh shit I couldn't tell wtf's the difference
@sexts101 oh i peep. They made part of the suede a brighter purple.
@sneakernews Lewis Hamilton wore these three weeks ago in Rome
@sneakernews are these releasing?
Lol you can tell these aren't normal Burgundy 5s. So no, THESE did not drop if you know shit about sneakers. THESE are a custom. Google the Burgundy 5s and tell me if its the exact same shoe. Color is different and so is that heel panel with the leather piping. The plastic nets on the side are much bigger on real 5s But I do agree that these just look more like fakes than a custom. The details are dope but too subtle.
@sneakernews very very fresh
@sneakernews they aren't customs
@sneakernews they ate not customs
@sneakernews they are dyed violet but the ankle support stayed part of the burgundy 5s. They're technically custom. But not worth it.
@sneakernews what's custom about them? Those were a quickstrike release
@sneakernews These aren't customs. I should of never sold mine.
@sneakernews sorry but the 5's don't have that piping and the net is different the og's don't have that !
