There’s not much more we can say about the Air Jordan V. The aggressive mustang-fighter inspired design, the oversized 3M-reflective tongue, and the introduction of the novelty lace-lock describe the fifth Air Jordan shoe – one that Michael wore while scoring a career-high 69 points, taking the Bulls one game away from an NBA Finals, and winning his second league MVP award. It’s one of those Air Jordans that falls into the category of the Bred XIs, White/Cement IIIs, the Last Shot XIVs – the Jordans that tell a story every time it pops up in view. Euro retailer Afew (formerly Schuh-You) just put together a sweet microsite for the Air Jordan V, which includes a video of the Air Jordan V with flashback audio commentary, and teases the upcoming release of the Air Jordan V Black/Metallic Silver Retro. Check out the video after the jump and let us know if you plan on copping these classics, and if you want to get them ahead of time, pick up a pair now on eBay.
