Even though we just came off a big year of Air Jordan 5 releases, it looks like there might be more coming in the near future. Shown here is a sample pair that’s got kind of an early 90s vibe to it between the cement speckling and the faded sole setup – the yellow sections in particular have them looking rather like a Nike Air Command Force tribute. Get a better look at this Air Jordan V with us after the break and stick with Sneaker News to find out when and where they’ll be releasing.
They(Jordan Brand) need to hold a contest for new designs of each silhouette. I have Murderous Designs/CW ideas for a lot of Retros. I would use the tumbled black full grain leather from the Oreo4, and the Buttery Red Suede from the Raging Bull 5's and create a Classic with every silhouette! Instead they use split grain white leather and horrible 90's CWs!? Smh... Give me a shot JB!
WELL I WANT THIS SHIT BABY!!!!!! Hope these release and you folks will stay true to your words and stay away from these so I can get em.
I'm hoping there customs, but looking at the things JB comes up with these days, I wouldn't be surprised if they're going to release.
These are... interesting... I feel like hey might have some amount of potential if we could see them in more high def images or anything better quality than these pictures. I can understand the appeal for these but they're not favorites of mine. They will of course be collecting lots of bandwagon hate. They are not on my cop list but will probably sell out no matter how much crap people give them because well they're retro 5s.
@saralee Or an unfinished custom.
