There are probably many collectors who are fond of custom sneakers and would not mind adding an exclusive one-of-one sneaker to their collection that only they own. Unfortunately, celebrities and those who can spare a considering amount of bucks are able to get their hands such custom kicks. Obviously, 50 Cent fits in both those categories and the Air Jordan 5 pair he was spotted wearing recently will likely not be up for grabs on one of the upcoming or future Jordan release dates 2015.
The fact that this is a custom Air Jordan 5 iteration is not the only eye-catching thing about this sneaker, rather the fact that the colorway has apparently been dubbed “Warriors” might surprise Jordanheads. For those who do not get it, “Warriors” is actually a reference to the Golden State Warrirors and 50 Cent has never really represented the Oakland-based team. However, now that he is laced up in these kicks that appear to draw inspiration from the team’s official colors, it seems that he is showing his support for Dun Nation.
This custom Air Jordan 5 colorway was seen in recent photos that 50 Cent posted on his Instagram account, which include two on-foot shots as well. The entire sneaker appears to be sporting a fade effect just like a gradient. The upper is apparently made up of synthetic ostrich, snake and stingray panels. Three different shades of blue are visible on the pair, light near the toebox but it gets darker as the hue extends towards the heel, while a vivid Yellow hue is the second color. This custom Air Jordan 5 rendition even looks like a doper version of the “Laney” colorway.
50 Cents even posted a photo of what looked like a custom Spider-Man-inspired Air Jordan 4 sneaker, which resembles Spidey’s suit from the latest film. The Air Jordan 5 “Warriors” is definitely awesome to look at but apparently that is all that Jordanheads will be able to, considering that it unlikely this pair will ever arrive at retailers on one of the Jordan release dates 2015.
