Both situated near the very top of the list of non-Bulls Air Jordan colorways, the Air Jordan V ‘Grape’ and Air Jordan VIII ‘Aqua’ share a common recipe for success: adding teal and purple accents to one of Tinker Hatfield’s masterpieces. And seeing as we haven’t seen either retroed in recent years, sneaker customizer Rudnes decided to give us both in a single black leather package. The Air Jordan V ‘From Grape to Aqua’ looks exactly as its name would suggest, though there’s no use of the VIII’s signature graffiti print as you might expect from a project of this sort. Click through to see the blackout up close, let us know what you think and if a ‘Grape’ Air Jordan VIII is something worth executing. via Paint or Thread
Call these ugly ... I'll make them fly , but some nubuck would make these firm . And that grey should be snuck in on these from the aquas . I love them honestly , something to work with .
I like these I think the mesh shouldve been left clear. but over all I like these. But as usual haters will hate! nice job though!
Ebody is pissed cause grapes are grails... But these go hard, except the multi colored eyelets...well... the idea goes hard at least... I just personally could trash my grapes...
I don't like grapes too much ....but I do like these...:) That is actually not a bad color way....lol
Everybody saying there shit an he fucked up da shoes but if JB was to SHOW a digital drawing of this shoe saying coming soon u cats wood get rite on yo hypebeast shhh... me personally i wood cop if they dropped in black suede
Judging by the soles, the netting was probably yellowed to hell. I might have tried something like that too. Needs some white where the original Black was. I would have also done the eylets black. Maybe a couple of other changes, but an overall good idea.
Nice! All of the above "hater" comments are irrelevant. Let JB confirm a drop like this, it'll be mayhem at that malls. And u best believe, the critics will be there too. lol
i agree with preston. if you would have kept the eyelets one color. Perferably aqua, it would have looked better. overall, not bad at all.
More than likely he can afford to do this to a pair of grapes.... don't act like y'all don't got more than one pair of the same shoe.I wouldn't do that but cool for him
these look great as is, but if he had put the aqua's graffiti print on the back part of the midsole that is black right now...hoooooooly shit
Im SOOOOOOOOOO agreeing with you, plus ihe would have traded midsoles with themettallics, the would make these nicer . I mean if u gonna butcher sum grapes take your time n do it. Black suede, aquastripess, these would be deadly
i dunno what to say???? nice try???? umm???? okay good luck with that custom right there. giggles and leaves
