2000 vs. 2007 vs. 2011 Comparison Air Jordan 5 Retro Black Varsity Red-Metallic Silver

Since the Jordan’s released ,the Air Jordan 5 Retro Black Varsity Red have been a popular one in the sneakers world .It was designed by Tinker Hatfield and released in 1990. The original versions featured “Nike Air” on the heel, but more recent versions have a Jumpman logo. The AJ5 was part of the first “Remastered” releases that debuted in late 2014/early 2015. The latest Remastered “Black/Metallic” colorway releases with original “Nike Air” branding on July 23rd, 2016 .

But today we are talking about the version of 2000, 2007 and 2011,there are some difference as below :


The most beloved Air Jordan models and colorways ever is back in OG form, featuring the original Nike Air branding on the heel and Nike text on the outsole—just the way Tinker Hatfield originally designed them.

For the Difference of the shoes’s tongue ,lace system: Though it is difference version,but it almost the same ,we can see the a little difference ,the logo on the tongue, the version of 2000,it used the “NIKE “logo ,others still used the Jumpmen logo.For the lace system , it is the same material and the same design.WIith higher quality Durabuck and a more supple 3M tongue. That is great.

For the material ,though it the same material were the same.but there is a little difference , such as the version of 2000, it used more thickness of suede material ,Materials on this colorway require practically no break-in time. However, they get softer as you play so it’s less supportive as time goes by. then the version 2007, the quality of material is also nice too. then the last one —2011 version of jordan 5 , the material is a little thickness. so if  you like the thickness, maybe the 2011 version will be better.



For the traction : they are almost the same too,for the version 2000, and the version of 2007, they are used the  translucent rubber, Dust and debris will slightly hinder overall performance of the traction ront to back, the herringbone worked perfectly ,a lot of fans will like it .the heel gave me some slight slippage when in transition. Mostly when curling around screens, running fast breaks & driving by the opposing player at an angle.

For the cushioning: , actually they improved one version by one version.they are featuring a heel & forefoot Air unit along with a Polyurethane midsole. for the version ,it was great,but for the version 2007 , it is a little improved ,the grip is nice . The midsole will start off fairly stiff but soon breaks in over time, something that I had not experienced with the AJIII or IV.  For the version 2011, it is also great too. it is still followed the last version.


we can see the logo of difference version ,the version of 2000 and 2007 , it is used the NIKE words, and the version of 2011 , it is used the jumpmen logo.

For the supporting ,it is almost the same design and material of supporting , that is great . If the upper features leather versus the nubuck you will receive a bit more support from a material standpoint than you would from this particular pair. but the version of 2000 , it is  used the NIKE word….then others used the jumpmen logo.

There are some detail of the shoes have a little difference. Such as the mesh material ,it is a little difference .but the performance almost the same great.


For the price , we can see the picture ,the version of 2007 was the cheaper, it is  just usd 135 dollars.and the version of 2011, it is the most expensive–usd150 dollar ,so compare with difference version , the version of 2007 must the value of price .
