Since the Back-To-School season is upon us, designers at Jordan Brand decided, quite fittingly, to re-release the Air Jordan V “Laney.” As a way to celebrate His Airness Michael Jordan’s path to G.O.A.T., the AJ5 “Laney” features the same Varsity Royal Blue and Varsity Maize Yellow colorway as the Emsley A. Laney High School in Wilmington, North Carolina, where Jordan excelled in baseball, football, and basketball. Though the design received a tepid reaction from both sneakerheads and Jordan fans when it first launched back in 2000, this 2013 re-release will not suffer the same fate, judging by the early interests. The Air Jordan V “Laney” will be available leading up to the holiday shopping season on November 2nd, 2013.
