We’ve been bringing you reports on the Air Jordan 5lab3 as it’s been making its slow trudge from creation to release. Although we still don’t have any confirmed information on when we’ll all be able to get our hands on them, Instagram user kixdreams apparently has. Opting not to take advantage of the all 3M upper, kixdreams shows off his pair relegated to the back corner of his walled-in patio. The Rhenium-inspired sneakers continue to impress with their stone grey reflective upper, black mudguard, and ice outsoles. It seems like Nike is loosening its grip on these pairs, leading us to believe a release will happen soon.

We’re also noticing a trend: between “Re” (from the periodic table of elements) on the sneaker's tongue, and the “Au” and “Ag” on the Lunar Force One “Liquid Metal” Pack, is Nike up to something? We wouldn’t be mad at 118 different pairs that are this crazy.
