Air Jordan 5 “Cool Grey” – First Look

News regarding Air Jordan retro releases for Spring 2011 leaked earlier this year, and Summer 2011 Jordan retro news recently hit the web. However, majority of Jordan heads didn’t know anything about the Cool Grey Air Jordan 5 that’s set to launch next summer. Maybe you heard about them, but today TSG is confirming that Jordan Brand will indeed release a Cool Grey Air Jordan 5 Summer 2011.

In addition to confirming the release, we also provide you with a first look at the CG Jordan 5. Enjoy the first look and get ready to welcome the Air Jordan 5 to the Cool Grey Jordan family. It’s way too early for a release date, but they are currently set to release in May 2011. Give us your feedback in the comments.

    man its just a shame that u cant wear these things without yellowing..one of the greatest shoes in the world ever and they have to b wraped in plastic forever

  • Tyler

    Is that suede? These should be a fall release IMO. Goes great with sweats

  • Passed on the Green Beans….good chance that I’m gonna pass on these as well.

  • curious george

    whoa! but i must say it would be nice to see the soles come in a different icy hue..

  • Hard to tell from the pic but if done correctly these could be a HUGE RELEASE imo.
    .
    Good Stuff dropping the EXCLUSIVE NEWS G-Roc.

    These are Winners.

  • Hunter

    So far my day has sucked. Get in here at lunch and this just made it a little better! Can’t wait for these to release!!

  • Solelace

    I like me some cool grey just as much as the next person but these just don’t look right on the 5’s here. The material also looks pretty bad and in just a couple of wears look like they will crease very badly. No bueno!

  • Shoop

    Well this is interesting. The entire “cool grey” concept has always stuck out to me. To me it looks a bit awkward on the Vs but I think the coll grey will work on these. But I have to see more detailed pics for these to win me over.

  • wayne brooks

    I’m on em for sure. Love Vs to death.

  • The Epidemic

    Omg I will pay loads for these!!

  • John B

    looks pretty good right now imo but i cant wait to get a set of detail pics to make my final decision. but they are a yes for now. good lookin G-Roc!

  • Nice!!!! Another dope Cool Grey C/W.

  • Converse King The Supreme Hater

    Horrible.

  • Hello Mr. Positive Converse King… Glad you could add something to this post as well.

  • G-Roc = King!

  • jp3

    Take off the “23” and we’ve got a winner

  • YESSSSSSSSSSS, THEY GOT THE ICEY BLUE MESH. NO MORE YELLOWING. THIS IS A WIN!!!!!

  • Sign me up. These are clean and simple…just how I like my kicks (most of the time).

  • Goat612

    2 pair

  • Nick

    Why does everyone think icy blue tint will be the end all to our yellowing woes. The new blueish tint has only been implemented within the last year or so..unless someone has direct experience of this counter-acting the yellow process then stop claiming such poop. There are ds and vnds Columbia 11s with a bluish tint out there, but it doesn’t stop them from yellowing if you wear them out in the world. Such is the dilemma with icy soles.

  • HATE IS FO SUCKAS

    These are future classics

  • Nick. Trust me. i rock my eggplants out every day. No yellowing. My space jams i rocked a few times and they already started

  • yeah, these are nice as hell. they will look even better in person

  • BcUz-I-cAn

    I can dig it. I would like some more hits of white though, but these are still the biz either way.

  • berlin

    i like

  • sci

    Niceee

  • CARTER

    these are nice but as far as a cool grey colorway goes the xi and ix are both better then these!

  • Not a fan of 5’s by any standard but these are looking pretty dope. HAVE to wait for future pics though, can judge a pass or buy on this.

  • the pic doesn’t really do a lot for me, they look super dark – almost like a lighter uni blue 5.

    but it doesn’t even matter because there is a huge chance these will be LS or something and I won’t even get a chance to buy (i’m a chick, I wear a 4.5Y) anyway so…

    *rolls eyes*

  • Muntz3000

    No comment…..
    Not until more detailed shots.
    I got a good feeling about the blue tint Soles though. But only time could tell how they hold up against the Elements

    (Sidenote)
    What happen to the Chi town 10s &
    Snake Skin 11s with 2010 releases?

  • CARTER

    I’ll now bet the grape and laney pack is real!

  • sneakz-n-billz

    I’m sorry……..but this colorway does not excite me at all

  • sneakz-n-billz

    I’m sorry……..but this colorway does not excite me at all
    ……let me take that back.
    ……..I’m not sorry these are wack as hell

  • they aight,nothing to run to the bank for.

  • GutBucket

    Need to see these in person to make a better informed decision.

  • Hmmmm… I’m just not sure “Cool Grey” works on the VI… like, AT ALL! It looks boring and I generally have grown fond of the CG CW over the years. Yeah, this is a boring looking shoe! (to steal from AM95) ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzz…

  • Royal Swagness

    Next year might be year of the 5’s. metallic, cool grey, & low chance in laneys or grapes.

    – In more detail pics they’ll look way better. give it some time. A picture says a 1,000 words but in person it’s more of a reality. Icy tint of these is smooth. I’m coppin.

  • BRINX aka Dont Get Mad Get Money

    LOL @ ASH AND LOL @ LA 2 THE BAY

  • G-Roc is my homie, motherlover, friend. no homo & no rainbow.

  • JJ

    Brinx, relax. We get you hate them. Doesn’t mean everyone who likes them is sqaure. Relax.

    With that said, these are nice, might pickup depending how they look in person.

  • @CenValCali – Thank you, sir.
    .
    Thanks for the continued support, TSGers.

  • weezy23

    nice i like em and will definatly copp but would love to get my hands on laneys and grapes 1st

  • Converse King The Supreme Hater

    If you all want some Jordan 5’s, I’ll be leaving two pairs in the garbage some day soon. Come around before the truck eats them.

  • D

    Copped

  • cuda

    This will look oh so dope sittin in between my Cool Grey IVs and 2000 Vs (w/ tha Nike Air on back).

    Now all I need is the Laney Vs so I can rock them to the game next time my School (Havelock) slaughters them in football. LMAO

  • LA 2 THE BAY

    Hahahaha @CK.

  • macabrecrown666

  • poo

    AJ5 welcome to the cool grey family

  • *SPEAKING OF THE GRAPE/LANEY PACK”…..I hope JB don’t eff up the grapes w/ a 23 on the side.

  • namebeBuddha

    i love cool grey colorway,and the 5 my favorite sneaker,but it just dnt look right on this shoe,possible cop tho

  • BiG_AcE

    this are not right….no this look pretty nasty. im guna have to see detailed pics or in person

  • Sdot

    The leather is amazing I must say.

  • Ron

    they seem nice…i gotta see better pictures to determine

  • iSETtrenDz

    ppl is crazy…

    i think i’ma cop these, but more for the sake of the “cool grey” bein’ on a “jordan 5”.. which is “new” & i like “new”. i don’t think these will rank high enough into the top 5 jordan 5’s.

    .OG white/blk/red
    .Fire reds
    .Grapes
    .Laney High
    .Metallics
