The next chapter in Jordan Brand’s Elements series heads back to the shoe that started it all. The ‘Black/Metallic’ Air Jordan 3Lab5 is the third Elephant-covered AJV, the first one that reaches back to the OG 1990 Fives for inspiration. So the colorway and the silhouette come from ’90 and the Elephant covering is from ’88, but you can bet this will be one of 2014’s big hits when it hits. And when is that exactly? Stick with Sneaker News and we’ll let you know as soon as a date is confirmed.
I don't understand the appeal of these shoes. Elephant print should be used in moderation. SMH JB SMH
@BackseatJuice I am the same way. When I see pics of these from a distance they look worthy, but when I see pics close up I'm hesitant...
