Before seeing his name in the Hall of Fame, in the newspaper, books, and even on a pair of signature Nike kicks, Jordan failed to see his name on the list of players to make the varsity squad back at Wilmington’s Laney HIgh School. But, that’s exactly the type of thing that makes MJ’s story so great; he didn’t let the loss ruin his career. Instead, he kept at it, earned a scholarship to UNC and, well, you know the rest. Marking his formative years back at Laney, Air Jordan is releasing a retro colorway of the AJ 5 with a white tumbled leather with mesh windows and varsity royal and maize accents. We have more details in our earlier preview of the drop here, but the most important update is the news of its release date: November 2. Head to select Jordan Brand shops nationwide to purchase beginning this Saturday and use Nike Insider for more details.
Release Date: November 2, 2013 (Saturday)
