Did you pick up the Air Jordan 5 Retro “Hornets” this past weekend? If so, here’s a little tidbit of information you may be interested in. The shoe was not an entirely new colorway; it was actually based off of an original sample colorway from all the way back in 1990. The actual released version from last weekend was a bit darker overall, but the idea was definitely there—as a colorway loosely tied to MJ’s North Carolina roots. With the surfacing of images depicting an “Alternate ’89” Air Jordan 4 last week, the fact that the “Hornets” Air Jordan 5 was based off an early sample gives further question to whether Jordan Brand will continue to release once-scrapped sample colorways of classic Jordans. Enjoy the rare look at the original sample Air Jordan V, and stay tuned to Sneaker News for further developments in this story.
