today is the day oh my gosh I’ve been waiting for this package not normally  like I’ll just be like okay package coming in the mail but this is the one  where I was like no I woke up in the morning and I was tracking that delivery  and the package oh the package finally came this might be the best package of  the year I mean I know we’re only a month and a half in I’m excited to open  this thing up with you guys let’s get it  welcome back to the channel what’s up with you guys how you doing how you been  if you did not know by now my name is DJ and this is the DNA show you already  know what the topic is I’m so ready to get into it but if you haven’t already  don’t forget to hit that subscribe and join the family type a comment down  below and let me know if you are now new to the family if you all to the family  what’s up with y’all how y’all doing brah I’m excited to open these things up  but before we start I gotta tell you right now this package came from Nike  meaning I got these from 225 dollars I don’t even know what to say right now  literally hitting on sneakers up with this shoe right here obviously knowing  the value and how hard it was to get and everything but I’m happy about that.

because now I don’t have to worry about going spend a hundred thousand dollars  whatever it may be on a shoe like this because if so I probably wouldn’t a body  so let’s go ahead and open these things up let’s break them down let’s do some  comparisons let’s talk about the materials and brass let’s get into it  and here we have it Air Jordan Pi off white ah so let’s go ahead and dive into  this box first because obviously this isn’t like your typical Air Jordan five  box yes it has similarities but you can see a lot of holes inside these box on  the top you got three holes on the side three holes on the side and then another  two holes in the back and nothing in the front looks like a basic regular box in  the front there’s a little plastic lining right here so you can’t stick  your finger through it which is good because that protects the chute and then  also on the sides in the back of the box there’s a plastic lining on there as  well so not a bunch of stuff is just gonna be  able to get inside the box so on your off-white dump box you can actually  stick your fingers through the holes and I can cause other things to fall inside  the box as well ,cheap jordan 11,so I think they were thinking a little bit more ahead and  they probably had some struggles with that box but breath let’s open these  things up I know I’m sorry I’m taking so long but I got a cover  all these details oh my gosh this kind of reminds me of the UNC off-white one  where they had the flip up top and then they have the clear plastic and I said  off-white branding on the plastic as well I think that kind of has that vibe  was the newer vibe as well so it’s a cool little mix when it comes to the  packaging oh man but before we get started on the review .

I just want to  reference two different shoes in this one comparing the materials on the  off-white Air Jordan one and then obviously the overall scheme in the  colorway and the color blocking when it comes to the metallic Air Jordan 5 so  that way you guys have understanding of the two shoes that we will be using in  comparison with this off y5 so let’s go ahead and get into it starting with the  outside you have a semi translucent smoke whatever you like to call it black  in yellow tint air jordan v outsole with the classic nike branding on the outsole  also matches with the metallic v that you see here  Vergil took a lot of inspiration when it comes to the yellow outlaws from the  original pairs because over time,jordan 11 china, they start to yellow and they have that  vintage vibe so he wanted to use that homage when he had these pairs from back  in the day and then yellowing over the years too now when he owns them so I  feel like that’s a dope cool touch for his story and then also giving that  vintage vibe when it comes to an Air Jordan 5 now going into the midsole we  have a cool little touch here it has the same color blocking as the metallic vibe  but the silver is more of a grayish paint and it still has that same cement  print over the shark teeth as well obviously giving it that classic  metallic v vibe you have a similar colored air unit here kind of more  creamy ish off-white as whatever you like to call it and that’s also similar  to the 2016 retro as well going to the toe of the foot.

you can see that is more  of a grayish smokers tent with still a black stitch line compared to the  all-black toe here on the metallic v so I sold my 2006 metallic 5 but on that  pair it has a 23 stitched on the side and these also have a 23 stitched on the  side but it’s also dope because they took the og vibe and put the nike air on  the back compared to the jump man that they had previously on that retro so  another look here on the back of the foot compared to the 16 and the 2020  version you still have the classic nike air branding on there I think is a dope  hit now this takes me into the ankle portion of the shoe where there is  actually no padding around the ankle they put holes where they normally would  have those pockets on the side of the foot so looking at the two shoes you can  see that there’s a big prince when it comes to the ankle  there’s a huge padded ankle portion on the left in the right side of the foot  when it comes to the classic metallic v but this one they completely eliminated  it all and made it a smooth section here on both sides of the foot and then stuck  a circle in here with a little bit of mesh it’s pretty flimsy there’s no  padding or anything between it we saw Virgil the other day cut the  holes out of the shoe and done that on these different portions of the foot  I personally probably would never do that another thing that really stands  out to me is the off-white 5 on the left foot it has a hole that’s actually  already cut out on the tongue and then obviously .

you have a full complete more  plush air jordan 5 tongue here you have a 3m reflective tongue with a red  Jumpman on the right foot of the shoe is the German is offset to the left side of  the tongue and not in the center of the tongue yet there’s no hole over here I  don’t know if he’s expecting us to cut a hole out ourselves I’m not doing it ,cheap jordan shoes,so  you can kind of see the gist of turning a metallic 5 into a deconstructed  version or flip the inside out version whatever you like to call it but you can  see the similarities between the two shoes and that is something very cool  that he took the homage from a classic og sneaker and put his own major twist  on this shoe taking it to the inside of the foot you have your off-white for  Nike Air Jordan v branding Beaverton Oregon USA but this one has a hint where  it says 1990 and that is the year that the metallic 5 was originally made and  they used this as a 30 year anniversary homage to the metallic 5 so another cool  thing to talk about is the black zip tie this has got the 2020 vibe on it as well  looking at I see I’m loving that and obviously you have your red one here  classic like the whole school ones that they originally started with but the  thing that I really want to talk about is obviously the deconstructed elements  around the ankle of the foot and then the material that they used on this Air  Jordan one UNC colorway that they used on the toe cap because they use that  same type of material all over this whole shoe and one thing that I was  really happy about them doing that on this one compared to the Chicago one was  that this material won’t fray and get messed up as easy obviously I’ll kick it  dirty but you know that it won’t shred like the original Chicago one did from  the off-white pack so to now see them put that same  that they did on the toe cap here all over the shoe I think it’s a pretty dope  look I feel like it might be pretty sturdy it shouldn’t have no problems I  wouldn’t take a knife to it or anything like that  but I’m feeling like it’s gonna hold his ground so that brings me to my next  question drop a comment down below how do you  guys feel about this shoe is it dope is it hot is it not is it worth it so I  went to my Instagram story and I asked the people if you haven’t already go  ahead and follow me on there 76% of the people said these are fire 24% other  people said they are trash now I don’t know if they said they’re trash because  they didn’t get them or if they actually truly honestly feel that they are  trashed me personally I’m giving these shoes a solid a very solid 9 out of 10  do I think this is the best air jordan 5 ever no but could I rate it may be in  the top 10 air jordan fives that I like for colorways and different stuff like  that different vibes cool exclusivity all these different things I feel like  these fall in that category I’ve liked the craftsmanship I feel like the  materials I feel like everything when it comes to just creating these  deconstructed elements and all these parts of the shoe I’m making it a  functional sneaker I feel like they did a great job  and obviously this shoe is something dope to have in the collection with a  yellow bottom already like you don’t even have to worry about a yellowing  because it’s already yellow so then I went to Instagram which one’s better the  metallic 5 or the off white metallic 5 64% other people went to the classic  original metallic 5 this wouldn’t be nothing if it wasn’t for this shoe right  here ok so let’s talk about money let’s talk about dollars let’s talk about  value and all those different things the shoe retailed at 225 dollars I got very  lucky and I got them off of sneakers out so whatever happens to me is going to be  a win and that’s gonna happen to anybody else that got this shoe off her sneakers  at but unfortunately there were a lot of people that bought this shoe immediately  after it dropped in the resale market the shoe was going for around 1,400 to  1,200 dollars in my size range obviously it varies based on size I’m a size 13 so  the shoe was a hi-hi-hi next thing you know the shoe drops and it’s going for  around 1,100 bucks and people like oh man this is great should I buy it I sell  it is a she’s gonna go up in value what’s gonna happen I feel like the same  thing happened with this shoe as it did the UNC one the UNC one was going for  like a thousand dollars and the next thing  it was going for like 600 bucks everybody’s like damn I just lost all  this money but overtime would at the UNC one do it went back up in value and now  it’s worth twelve hundred fourteen fifteen hundred dollars whatever you  want to call it for that same exact shoot it always happens with a lot of  demanded shoes the price spikes immediately and that kind of gives you a  gauge of what the shoe is worth and then from there a lot of people that get the  shoe that don’t care about the shoe that don’t want the shoe all those different  factors they end up selling the chute and driving the price down because they  just want to make a quick buck they got the shoe for 225 and they’re like damn  I’ll sell it for 800 they sell it for $1,000 right now and then the next  person does that and the next person does it and they keep competing against  each other to drive the prices down which is a great thing for people that  are buying the shoe but also bad for the people that are selling the shoe  obviously it’s a two-way street I’m just trying to give you guys both  perspectives when it comes to this shoe I hope this was helpful I hope you guys  enjoyed this I hope this helps you with the comparison seeing more details about  the shoe honestly I love love love
