With standout models like the ‘Metallic Silver’ OG, ‘Wolf Grey’ and ‘Quai 54’ drops, last July’s ‘USA’ Air Jordan V was one of 2011’s sleeper Air Jordan Legacy releases. All that white patent leather makes them a fairly blank canvas for custom work, and longtime sneaker handcrafter Revive recognized the opportunity to combine a love of Jays with the concept of not just flying through the air toward the hoop, but also en route to a deserted island paradise. The ‘Corona’ Air Jordan 5 custom adds familiar branding, bottlecap dubraes and a wholly unique medial colorblocking to this familiar silhouette that’s poised to bless us once again in the coming year; would you rather have a pair of these and a few fresh limes, or say, a ‘Fire Red’ or ‘Grape’ OG as slated for next spring? Let us know after you’ve seen more on the other side and stick with Sneaker News for all the 2013 Air Jordan V release dates.
