There was much success last month for Jordan Brand with the exclusive, limited release of the Air Jordan 5 retro "3Lab5", which applies the elephant-print theme from the retro 3 onto the the retro 5 sneaker.

I was able to grab a pair, and the quality if quite amazing. It looks like Jordan Brand is trying to bring a new series — the Elements series — which is pretty similar to the BIN Premio series from a few years ago until JB stopped production. With that said, it looks like another 3Lab5 concept will be coming to the Air Jordan 5 retro again this year, as a new colorway was revealed.

In the photo above, we get an "Infrared" colorway of the 3Lab5. It features all-black on the upper and laces, along with it on the shark-teeth. The infrared can be seen on the tongue's Jumpman and on the midsole. The bottom is icey-blue. There's no look yet at the back of the shoe, but judging from the first 3Lab5, the Jumpman will likely be black.

Another look can be seen below:
Pretty dope, in my opinion. I wouldn't be surprised if this releases this year, but there's also a chance next year with the Air Jordan 6 "Infrared" colorways coming back in 2014. More info to come.

What do you think of the "Infrared" Air Jordan 5 retro 3Lab5 if it releases? Would you cop?
