Words: Luke Taylor

2013 is shaping up to be the “Year of the 5s” in terms of Air Jordan releases. There have been plenty of different drops in various colorways thus far this year, and there are still a few releases on the way before the New Year. Since this year has treated us so kindly with all the variations of the fighter-jet inspired sneaker, it seems appropriate that we count down the op 10 colorways (that we know of so far) in 2013.

Ah, elephant print. When used properly, like accents on the Air Jordan 3, it can make a shoe look irresistible. It’s a very creative take for the sneaker as the Air Jordan V had never been a sillhoutee to include elephant print. In this case it’s just too much, and that’s the main reason the Air Jordan “3Lab5” comes in at 10th on our list.
