Air Jordan V ‘Grape to Aqua’ Customs by Rudnes

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

The black is a bit too shiny but if they were nubuck I bet people would love them.

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 .

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

Really?

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
