My first time playing GTA SAN ANDREAS, I noticed that ryder was wearing a pair of green "Jordan 5 retros", take a look for yourself. I find that this is an Easter egg or something that rockstar implemented in the game? It seems as if I'm the only one who noticed this??? anyone else? biggrin.gif

Just a wild guess, but I'd say that they probably look like Jordan 5's. moto_whistle.gif

Some comparison pictures would be useful.

Okay, what he's talking about is a pair of shoes that were EXTREMELY popular with sports players in the early 90's. They were made by Michael Jordan, and they are apart of a line called "Jordans". The shoes that Ryder is wearing in the game are Jordan 5's, being the fifth shoe in the series released in 1988 and continued until 1993.

look at ryders shoes, who agrees they look like Jordan 5 retros? Does anyone know if Rockstar took permission from Jordan to use the models in the game? (just wondering). I found this interesting, and this time I provide a comparison picture....

Judging by this comparison, the shoes are modeled after them, indeed. Permission? From my perspective, that's free advertising, so I wouldn't have a coronary about it, but that's my opinion.

Never mind, it appears the topics were conjoined.

There's quite a few little brands thrown in here and there... Rockstar's been good at that it seems. : p

 

I like it in a way, since it's got a slight connection to reality.
