Next week we’ll be seeing the release of the Air Jordan 5 Bronze which appears to be a pair dedicated to the Olympics even though they’re long and gone. About a month ago we saw the release of the Air Jordan 5 Gold Medal which featured a vibrant gold tongue with a white leather upper. As soon as this shoe released, customizers were already putting their own twist on the shoe.

Today we take a look at one of the best customs that uses this colorway of the Air Jordan 5 and it comes from Mache Customs. Mache decided to create a pair of 5s inspired by Ray Allen and his time with the Celtics. Dubbed the Air Jordan 5 Ray Allen Alternate Championship PE, Mache added hits of green on this Air Jordan 5 as well as Allen’s signature by the heel.

Do you like this pair better than the original Gold Medal? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.

Not much was done to this custom by Mache, but it’s crazy to see how much a shoe can change with such a small alteration. I’m sure Ray Allen would have loved to wear this pair.
