How Hard Was It To Pick Up A Pair Of The Air Jordan 5 Black Metallic

Air Jordan 5 1 Air Jordan 5 2 Air Jordan 5 3 Air Jordan 5 4 Air Jordan 5 5 Air Jordan 5 6 Air Jordan 5 7 Air Jordan 5 8 Air Jordan 5 9

If you read the latest installment of Buy, Pass, Wait, you probably already knew that I’m one of the people who chose to not even try to pick up a pair of the Air Jordan 5 Metallic Silver this morning. But, what about you? Did you manage to pick up a pair of this OG version of the Jordan 5.

Priced at $220, the shoe managed to get a lot of hype due to the Nike Air branding placed on the heels and insoles. To many people, that Nike Air is definitely a game changer. I haven’t had the time to see if they sold out online, so I’ll just ask you guys, how ward was it to pick up a pair? Let us know if you struck out and were able to get a pair in the comments below.

Author’s Take

It’s a cool shoe, but it’s one that I feel like I don’t need in my collection. The Nike Air branding is not a game changer for me.

An On-Feet Look At The Asics Gel Kayano Trainer Rioja Red

asics-gel-kayano-trainer-evo-rioja-red 1 asics-gel-kayano-trainer-evo-rioja-red 2 asics-gel-kayano-trainer-evo-rioja-red 3

Asics just released yet another tonal version of the Asics Gel Kayano Trainer. This time around the shoe boasts a Rioja Red (Burgundy) motif that puts me in a wine-drinking mood.

Construction-wise, the shoe is made out of stretch-fit mesh placed below the seamless stripe branding. This gives the shoe a lightweight, breathable and modern aesthetic. Below you will find a Gel cushioned sole unit to provide sufficient comfort and support. Asics branding, laces and lining all come in a Rioja Red as well. Out internationally, it’s only a matter of time before these drop stateside.

I recent;y picked up this model in the Spectra Green colorway. That version was done in a different construction, but seeing this Rioja Red colorway (which I love) done in mesh, makes me want to pick up this model as well. Great work by Asics, the shoe looks amazing!

Jordan Brand advocate and Los Angeles Clippers’ star guard, Chris Paul, recently attended the AAU team?s Championship Game wearing another exclusive Air Jordan 11.

Consisting as a player’s exclusive, the model essentially coordinates with the Clippers’ signature colorway. Textured leather across its upper, the distinctive patent leather overlay across its mudguard and midsole unit are treated in red, while the respective theme is topped off with blue accents on the logo and number on the heel.

Unfortunately, this model may never see a public release, although, stay tuned to KicksOnFire for further updates.
