I have a problem with this release, it was released last year. I’m assuming that Nike/Jordan must have got a backlash from people regarding the 2012 Fire Red release.
As you can see, unlike the OG colourway that came out this year (August 31st) this doesn’t have Michael Jordan’s number 23 on the outer heel side.
People are biased towards OG colourways, in regards to this year’s Fire Red 5’s because they do have the “23” on the side, but I think the extra red just above the sole is overdoing it. They could’ve done what they did with the “Nike Air” Air Jordan 3 ‘88, and just added the 23 to the model they had last year.
People are entitled to their opinion, like they are entitled to the shoes they wear, I just think that the Fire Red 5 2013 release was a little unnecessary.
This isn’t a full on rant about the shoe, just a minor point I want to point out. OK, I’m all about OG colourway, so of course I’m concerned as to why Jordan made the cement colours darker. I’m aware that Michael Jordan himself wore the black-ish cement, but I thought a cement grey, on the Fire Red was dope.
Just my opinion though.
