What would happen if you took two of the most expressive Retro+ colorways from the pre-championship Air Jordan Legacy and made them into one? That’s exactly what sneaker customizer EBreez3 was looking to find out when he applied the all-yellow styling from last year’s ’Tokyo 23′ Air Jordan V to the already unique Air Jordan III ‘Flip’.

What you see before your eyes is the Air Jordan V ‘Tokyo23′, quite possibly one of the sneakers to be given a coveted spot on Sneaker News’ Top 30 Sneakers of 2011. All attention was directed toward Japan due to the tragic natural disaster, and never before did a sneaker seem less important, but in a way, the launch of the Jordan Brand Tokyo23 website gave some added attention sorely needed by the people of the country – and perhaps that led to more donations and charitable funding. Nearly a month after the release and the Air Jordan V T23 is still a talked-about shoe, so if you’ve been looking for a pair and are willing to pony up the cash, RMKStore has a few sizes available, but you can also check for your size on eBay.
