The Industry // 250k Pairs of Laney Air Jordan 5s Sold Last Week
Words // Zac Dubasik
When the Laney Air Jordan 5 originally released in 2000, it was significant for the fact that it was the first "Retro+" colorway. Possibly related to that fact, it didn't fly from shelves, and even ended up widely on sale.
What a difference 13 years can make. According to Matt Powell, the re-release of the Laney 5 did significantly better, selling 250,000 pairs last week. This shouldn't come as a surprise, based on the level of anticipation they were met with this time around.
Are you surprised how many pairs were sold? Were you able to score yours?
