Starting with the “Black Laney” that resembles the Air Jordan 5 “Shanghai” colorway. Dressed in a full Black nubuck base with both Varsity Maize and Royal accents.
Next the “Black Cardinal” that is dressed in a full Black nubuck base with both Cardinal Red and Bronze accents. Both pairs failed to release, but some would say the “Shanghai” Air Jordan 5 was the closest thing to a “Black Laney” release.
It was the “Black Grape” Air Jordan 5 release that really sparked other “Black” edition colorways to follow. With the rumors to be dead, we ask the question which pair would you rather have in your collection – the “White” or “Black” colorways?
