This Saturday marks the highly anticipated return of the ‘Laney’ Air Jordan 5, a blue and gold accented colorway that pays homage to Michael Jordan’s time at Emsley A. Laney High School in Wilmington, North Carolina. At Laney, MJ averaged about 20 points per game in his final two season. In his senior year, Jordan was selected to the McDonald’s All-American Team after averaging a triple-double: 29.2 points, 11.6 rebounds and 10.1 assists.
With the ‘Laney’ 5 being a tribute to a younger Michael Jordan, it’s fitting that we take a look at the popular retro in a size made for his younger fanbase. The toddler retro features a white tumbled leather upper, plastic mesh panels, black on the inner lining and heel Jumpman logo and a kid-friendly grey rubber outsole.
You’ll be able to pick up these Jordan shoes in sizes ranging from men’s to infant here this Saturday, November 2 at 8:00 a.m. EST. Receive release updates and information by following @Eastbay on Twitter and @OfficialEastbay on Instagram.
