You won’t be dunking these bad boys in a cold glass of milk anytime soon, but the black and white scheme used on this Air Jordan 5 Retro has earned it the nickname of ‘Oreo’ by sneakerheads.

The classic model features a bold, black suede upper with contrasting white hits on the Jumpman branding, inner lining and midsole. A speckle print adorns the ‘teeth’ design, while a blue-tinted translucent outsole helps complete the look.

These retro Jordan shoes appropriately release here next Friday, November 29 at 8:00 a.m. EST / 7:00 a.m. CST. Follow @Eastbay on Twitter and @OfficialEastbay on Instagram for all release information and updates.

After checking out the toddler size earlier this week, here’s a look at this weekend’s ‘Laney’ Air Jordan 5 Retro release in men’s sizing.

Inspired by Michael Jordan’s time at Laney High School in Wilmington, North Carolina, the shoe sports a white tumbled leather base, accented by the Bucs’ school colors of blue and gold on the tongue, ’23’ embroidery and midsole. Black works the inner lining, heel Jumpman embroidery and shares the outsole with icy translucent rubber.

These Jordan shoes will release here this Saturday, November 2 at 8:00 a.m. EST. Follow @Eastbay on Twitter and @OfficialEastbay on Instagram for all updates and information.

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.
