The Air Jordan V took center stage this weekend as the poster-kicks for Jordan Brand’s 2011 Quai 54 International Streetball Tournament, but the black Quai 54 AJ5s will likely remain a figment of most of our imaginations. Not true of the AJ5 entirely, though, as the original black nubuck design that debuted some twenty-one years ago comes back just in time for the start of a new school year. The black and Metallic Silver Air Jordan V Retro is going to be one of those status items that separate the freshest from the rest. And while they’re not a limited edition or quickstrike, the sheer demand for this all-time great dictates that you’ll likely be waiting in line if you want a pair come August. So considering the quality apparent in these new AGS images, it could very well prove a wise decision to pay a small premium to grab yours before everyone else on eBay.
