As part of next year's 23rd Anniversary celebration, the Jordan Brand will be bringing back the Air Jordan 5 in the original "Fire Red" colorway. Here's another detailed look at the 2013 version, which more or less follows what we saw when the shoe dropped as part of the V/XVIII Collezione Pack in 2008. The most noticeable difference is probably the lack of "23" embroidery on the heel, that element staying closer to the original '90 release. Other features include a 3M reflective tongue, red "teeth" on the midsole and the blue-tinted translucent sole we've seen used often on recent retros.
The "Fire Red" Air Jordan 5 is slated to return in January. Detailed photos here courtesy of Joe Venuto.
