Yes Oregon players got suspended for selling sneakers, but that doesn’t mean that they’ll trickle out one way or another anyhow. Case in point, the Air Jordan 5 “Oregon” has at last hit your favorite online auction house. And, as was to be expected, the sneakers are fetching a pretty penny indeed. And who can blame the bidders-you’d think releases like this would soon be scarcer give the fact that the UO is cracking down on the selling of personal pairs at least a little bit. Continue reading to give these exclusive Jordans the once over and then check the chance to own them from sdotc on eBay.
One of the more obscure players to have signed with Jordan Brand in the 00s, former NBA player and defensive specialist Mickael Pietrus rocked the Jumpman during the latter part of his tenure with the Golden State Warriors. Here’s a pair of Air Jordan VIII PEs that were made for Pietrus a few months after GSW upset the Dallas Mavericks in just the second ever 8-over-1 upset in NBA Playoff history, a white edition with blue and yellow accents made for 2007-08 home games. They’ve got ‘MP2′ embroidery on the ankles, a detail you can see among others in more photos below; take a closer look and let us know if you’d drop a couple stacks for this pair and see what they sold for in this listing from phyuck_yo_kixx on eBay.
Just under a year ago, Russell Westbrook was the first to wear the Air Jordan XX8 as paired with the Oklahoma City Thunder’s alternate uniforms. Aside from this showcase, Jordan Brand made Westbrook a couple of other pairs to match those third jerseys, as we see in these two Jordan Super Fly colorways pictured below. In navy and white or navy and grey, both of these connect with the NBA’s only vertically-scripted jersey, but with Russ wearing the Air Jordan XX8 SE and the Super.Fly 2 having been out for a while, the only chance to get a hold of these is the deadstock PEs available for a short time from dballaholic on eBay.
Apparently this 2008 Air Jordan XX3 special was made for that year’s NBA All-Star celebration but never actually made it into the hands of players. Why not? Apparently the logo included is property of adidas so the production on these may have been stepping over some legal boundaries. Word has it that this pair is a Carmelo Anthony one (Although there’s no clear connection color wise to his then Denver home). Get with us after the break to see some more angles on the sneakers in question and then see how much the pair went for from phyuck_yo_kixx on eBay.
DJ Augustin has emerged as Jordan Brand’s face in Charlotte after the Bobcats had Gerald Wallace rocking the Jumpman for several years. One of many exclusives Augustin has gotten over this period is the Jordan 6 Rings pictured above, a pair created to match the Cats’ home games in mostly white with navy and blue accents. Click through to see more details like Augustin’s ‘DJ14′ id tag on the Six Rings’ AJ8-inspired velcro loops, let us know how these compare to the best Jordan PEs we’ve seen here on Sneaker News, and check out the completed listing from aias1111 on eBay.
This Jordan 6 Rings is one of a number of styles that’s on the way that will be wearing the gamma blue shade. The sneakers also utilize a black base and some varsity maize accents, and equation that has them looking rather like the Air Jordan XI “Gamma Blue”. The only thing is that they curiously skip out on the patent leather for the mudguard, a decision that distances them just a bit from that Holiday shoe. Continue reading to see more on this upcoming pair of Jordans and then get a hold of them early from kicksclusive on eBay.

Over the course of his twelve season NBA career (thirteen if you want to include the 29 minutes he logged for the Knicks last year), shooting guard Quentin Richardson amassed a collection of Air Jordan PEs that would make anyone not named Ray Allen or Mike Bibby insane with jealousy. Q-Rich’s sneaker closet is filled with unreleased colorways on some of the greatest models, and includes plenty of pairs from his first time around with New York. This Air Jordan V PE was made back when Richardson was wearing number 23 for the Knicks, its white leather upper having been made for home games at MSG. Let us know where these rank among the greatest Jordan PEs after you’ve seen more photos below, then make an offer on the pair currently available from thecoolshoeshine on eBay.
Next week figures to be the biggest one yet for the Nike Air Penny V, with the possible exception of the first colorway’s retail debut. That’s because we have two different Air Penny 5 releases in three days, which starts on Thanksgiving Eve with the Atomic Red ‘Lil Penny’ joints. The second half comes on Black Friday, when this ‘Camo’ edition hits retail with the deep green Black Spruce and black mingling alongside woodland camouflage and a few Volt hits. You can look them over with more photos after the jump, and be on the lookout for pairs arriving early from sellers like kicksclusive on eBay.

Yep, Denzel Washington wasn’t the only one to wear this Air Jordan 13. The pair was indeed around when Michael Jordan was still actively hooping in this silhouette. Extra proof comes in the form of this pair, which is autographed (UDA authenticated mind you) and comes in MJ’s size 13.5. They’re being billed as game worn but as always it’s difficult to really determine that accuracy of that status, especially since the usage appears minimal. Continue reading for a better glimpse and then purchase this Air Jordan 13 “He Got Game” OG for yourself from jordan23hot on eBay.
