Jordans are borrowing from one another more and more often these days between all those Air Jordan 1 hybrids and the about-to-debut “Elements” series. Doing a bit of borrowing of his own is Dank Customs, who pulled the Air Jordan IV “White/Cement” look over onto a WMNS Air Jordan V Low colorway of old. Aside from the speckled midsole treatment, the shoes also git a good bit more black to draw them closer to the Air Jordan 4 aesthetic. See the completed project after the break and stay tuned to see what Dank comes up with next.

AIR JORDAN LOW WEEK PART 2
Low-cut version of signature basketball shoes have always been treated as a second-rate to the original. For the Air Jordan, that certainly wasn’t the case, because the man himself has stated that he likes balling in low-top kicks, even prompting his label to create some low-cut PEs for him after the AJ1 and AJ2 released in shorter versions. The Air Jordan XI reintroduced the low-top appeal (albeit the IE Low version), urging the ‘Low’ became a staple; it wasn’t until very late 2006 that the Air Jordan V got that chopped-down treatment, releasing curiously for women only. In the final weeks of 2006, Jordan Brand released the first-ever Air Jordan V Low in this UNC-inspired colorway, and followed it with a White/Metallic Silver colorway just two weeks after, quickly opening and closing the door on the Air Jordan V Low experiment. These weren’t a massive hit by any means, and the two lone Air Jordan V Low releases being in womens sizes certainly didn’t its cause. Kick off part 2 of Air Jordan Low week in Classics Revisited below!

We’ve seen quite a number of Air Jordan V releases this year and even some unreleased samples (like that blue suede pair we showed you not long ago). Here’s a look at an unreleased Air Jordan V Low in Black/Purple, spotted on the feet of Jordan Brand employee Josiah_Lake who has dubbed these the ‘Purple Haze.’ Of course, being an employee of the Jumpman will enable you to get your hands on some true gems, so perhaps these were some Mike Bibby PEs, sans the stitched ’10′ number on the heel, that were just lying around the Beaverton campus. Also notice the upcoming Air Jordan Retros on his table – namely the Air Jordan IV White/Cement and Air Jordan III Black/Cement. We’ve got extra shots for you below, so take a look and let us know what you think of this Air Jordan V Low sample.
