Another retro of the Jordan 5 fire red will be making its way to select JB retailers on Saturday, January 26th 2013. Any Jordan collector will immediately notice differences between this retro and its predecessors; the most noticeable difference is the lack of any 23 branding on the back of the shoe and the midsole changes. We see a blue tinted icy sole which is becoming more popular with recent Nike releases (the blue tint although many dislike it is actually to combat yellowing overtime, something very innovative). The rest of the shoe appears to remain the same as the previous retros with 3M reflective material used on the tongue. If anyone knows their Jordan history, they will also know that this retro lacks a 23 on the back because the very first (OG, Nike air tag on back) fire red 5s did not have 23 anywhere on the shoe.The quality of leather looks superb and many Jordan fans are excited to see the actual OG fire reds making a comeback. Are these retros on your hit list? Sound off below.
