Jordan fans can get excited about retros making their way back to the scene just as much as remixes. We have seen quite a few makeovers from the Jumpman, but they all tie back to our beloved classics. Remember the update on the Fresh Prince Air Jordan V? The Air Jordan V holds strong in sneaker enthusiasts top picks. Even though I fell in love with the Air Jordan 1 and the Air Jordan 12 gets an honorable mention, the AJ5 is one that helped get me hooked. Skipping school for the first time to head to the Galleria and pick up my kicks was a thrill (until my Mom got involved). In the early 2000s, the Air Jordan V ‘Laney’ colorway dropped paying tribute to Michael Jordan’s high school alma mater. It took the streets by storm and it’s back more than a decade later with an update.

The Air Jordan V ‘Varsity Royal’ utilizes the OG colors continuing MJs legacy through kicks. This time, the silhouette is dipped in the vibrant royal tones with accents of charcoal and maize. Another change is the paint splatter details near the shark teeth design on the midsole. The ‘Varsity Royal’ is dressed in nubuck versus leather.

To kick off #MJMondays for the week, the Air Jordan V ‘Varsity Royal’ releases on February 2nd in a full size run that also caters to the small feet tribe. You can SHOP THE SNEAKS below on release day for $140 (GS Sizing price). Scroll down on SNKRS to catch smaller sizes.
