Chi McBride in Air Jordan 5 Oregon Ducks

air jordan 5 oregon ducks chi mcbride 1 Chi McBride in Air Jordan 5 Oregon Ducks

Just how much does Chi McBride stand with the Oregon Ducks? Apparently he’s wearing the Air Jordan 5 “Oregon Ducks” today on the set of Hawaii Five-0, and for what it’s worth that squad is in the middle of fighting it out in the Pac 12 tournament. This “Oregon” Air Jordan 5 is one that we’ve only seen up to this point with personal hits like the associated players’ names and numbers, presumably to prevent re-selling, but McBride’s pair here appears to be without those touches. Get a better look at them after the break and let us know if you’re feeling this pair of Jordan 5s for the University of Oregon. Thanks to Bikemanx for the photo!

Was the Air Jordan 5 Supposed to Retro in 1995?

March 6th, 2014 by | 3 comments

air jordan 5 1995 sample 12 570x425 Was the Air Jordan 5 Supposed to Retro in 1995?

Air Jordan retros first happened back in 1994, when Michael’s first three sneakers were re-introduced and the Swoosh first realized how much mileage was still left in those classic models. The retro steam would pick up again at the end of the decade, but it looks like there was almost another edition amongst those mid-90s ones. Shown here is an Air Jordan 5 sample that was purportedly produced back in 1995. The sneakers feature the “Nike Air” embroidery on the back, the upside down “Air Jordan” script on the inside of the tongues, and some proper yellowing as evidence of their age (They’re also missing a little bit of paint on the midsoles). Continue reading for a better look at this strange Jordan 5 from 1995 and then get a look at the chance to own the pair from 7ad3jc on eBay.

best jordan retros Close Calls: 10 Air Jordan Retros That Could Pass as OGs

With Air Jordans and just about every other sneaker you’d want to collect, the original releases are among the most valuable. OG Jordans have the mystique of premium quality from a bygone era. The top-notch materials themselves along with the fact that those classic pairs feature the ‘NIKE AIR’ branding that remains elusive on Retros, means that serious sneakerheads have either worn or stockpiled every pair out there with demand well exceeding supply. Just a few days ago, we saw the asking price for an original set of Air Jordan VIs with fully wearable sole swaps average over $1000/pair.

Air Jordan 5 – Unreleased White/Burgundy Sample

January 30th, 2014 by | 11 comments

air jordan 5 unreleased white burgundy sample 570x424 Air Jordan 5   Unreleased White/Burgundy Sample

Jordan Brand gave us so many Air Jordan 5 releases both old and new last year, but there’s always room for more when we’re talking about a beloved retro like this one. But JB has to make decisions from time to time about which potential releases should be left unsold, and that’s exactly what happened to this pair pictured above. This sample was created as a possible drop during the mid-00s AJ5 retro run, and seems to have lost out to the Deep Burgundy colorway that hit in December 2006, though the initial drop might have actually been scheduled for the following quarter. Click in for a closer look at this rarity and consider making an offer with papparodcee on eBay.
