Air Jordan 5 Retro+ "Laney" White/Varsity Royal-Varsity Maize '00 Sample Available On eBay

A rare sample version of the first "Laney" Air Jordan 5 Retro has popped up. Check out the auction here.
While everyone is anticipating the return of the "Laney" Air Jordan 5 Retro in November, today we get a look at a rare early sample version from the first retro release. This sample was made in 1999 for the 2000 release of the "Laney" Air Jordan 5 Retro+. As you can see, the design is the same as the pair released however, the font and size of the number "23" stitched on the heels is different.

These feature more of an OG style look to them as it is bigger and bolder while the released version and all pairs featuring the number "23" stitched on the heels on other releases features a smaller design. So somewhere in between the production stages, Jordan Brand decided to scrap the OG style design and go with a new style, the one we all see today. As these are samples, this version was never sold in stores or available to the public. Very rare and not a pair you see pop up very often.

Enjoy the detailed images below of this unreleased early sample version of the Air Jordan 5 Retro+ "Laney" in white, varsity royal and varsity maize. If you can fit a size 9 or would like to add these to your collection, you can grab them from eBay here.
