Air Jordan 5 Retro "Laney" White/Varsity Maize-Varsity Royal-Black 2013

The "Laney" Air Jordan 5 Retro is set to officially return, later this year. Check out the auction here.
Originally released in 2000, this Air Jordan 5 Retro was inspired by Michael Jordan's high school alma mater, Laney High School. After thirteen years, this "Laney" edition is finally set to make its highly anticipated return. This will mark this colorways second retro release to date. Coming in a white, varsity maize, varsity royal and black to match the Laney High School Buccaneers colors.

They are identical to the previous release complete with the number "23" stitched on the heels. This time around they feature an icy blue translucent outsole, just like the returning "Grape" Air Jordan 5 Retro. While neither the "Laney" release in 2000 or the "Grape" release in 2006 featured an icy blue sole, this new addition comes highly welcomed as it not only looks nicer but, it also helps slow down the yellowing process. While no official release date is set at this time, expect to see the "Laney" Air Jordan 5 Retro release sometime later this year. Once an official date is announced, I will be sure to make an update and let everyone know.

For now, enjoy a first look at this sample pair of the Air Jordan 5 Retro "Laney" edition in white, varsity maize, varsity royal and black. If you're looking to pick these up when they release, be sure to check in with your local spots to see if they will be receiving them.
