Air Jordan 5: “Bel-Air Inside Out” Customs by El Cappy

November 6th, 2013 By

The Air Jordan V “Bel-Air” hit retailers to mix-reception by fans. Sure, there was a plethora of notable features on the sneaker – from the mismatched ’23’ and Jumpman stitching alternating between flash lime and club pink to the shark teeth, but with so many Air Jordan 5s releasing this year many opted for other pairs. El Cappy recently decided to take the unique pair and make it even crazier, taking the 90s inspired print seen on the inner lining and making the confetti print cover the entirety of the shoe’s upper for a bright look that will surely turn heads. See more views in the gallery and stay tuned for more customs courtesy of Jordans Daily.
