There’s already one OG colored Air Jordan V hitting in 2013 that we’ve had plenty of recent looks at, the white/black/red doing its best original impression after the slightly altered CDP from last time around. As of now, Sneaker News can confirm another, the beloved ‘Grape’ colorway that’s been one of the most elusive ever since its most recent, 2006 release. Word is that the pair will be hitting in May, making them the perfect summer sneaker purchase in terms of Air Jordan retros. Click through for a view of the last time this pair dropped and if you don’t wanna wait till next year then add the ’06 Air Jordan V ‘Grape’ to your collection now from shoefreak_mo on eBay.

People were praying for these to drop and now some people don't want them to drop at all -_-
Anyways FCUK YEAH ! I will definitely be getting these!
Gettin 2 pair like I did in 06... even tho in 06 I came In da wk after release date & still copped 2 pair no issues...
Was a little mad at first, but then I remembered these will have that "SUPER BLUE TINT" on the soles. Now I'll be able to tell the difference between my three 06 pairs and everyone else's 2013. Appreciate the lookout J/b!
Jb is holding no punches.. idk know folks are complaining on its gone be hard to get em it was hard last go round in 06 to cop... if u want to cop easily go to a small market or rural town J's never sell fast there
A fav of everyone even those who just got into the game and never actually seen a previous pair in person. Shame! Thunder 4 now these, whats next?? This game is dead and its sad. It pisses me off, but cant so anything about it. Just hope that At one point all this hype dies and it returns to how it used to be. I used to say i cant wait til 90s fashion comes back. Boy was i wrong. Fuck me
NOOOOOOO! Why do you ruin EVERYTHING Jordan! Is NOTHING sacred??? Im gonna pass on them THIS time... but ill grab a pair when they release them the NEXT time. Or the NEXT time after that(all within the next 5 years). smh.
Jordan Brand is dead.
Sad to say but someone will get killed for these. And you might as well be prepared to camp for these as if they were an 11. One of the Top 3 most sought-after Jordans.
Instant SELL OUT GUARANTEE smfh. -____- Impossible to cop J's these days, even in all the other 150+ websites out there going to say, "SOLD OUT".... Oh well, I'll just keep customizing Uptowns....
has anyone else noticed the frequency of drop dates lately? Its getting insane. End of the year surprise releases, early release dates...Im getting dizzy. Its gotta be some kinda guinness world record being set. Spread the joy
THESE ARE A "MUST HAVE" FOR MY AJ 5 COLLECTION... BUT DAMN THEY DONT HIT RETAILERS UNTIL NXT YR 2013, SO THAT GIVE ME PLENTY O TIME TO GET EM; BUT THESE ARE MANDATORY I GET THESE PERIOD END OF STORY
Sucks that lame ass middle/high school kids gonna be lined up for these and "doubling up" because this once was one of every true sneakerhead's fave Jordans. They so influential at that age I guess. Lol. If you only seen Fresh Prince as a rerun then back of the line, kid....
Glad I moved for my $300 earlier this year. Needed the cash and one would d eventually. I'll try to scoop em up again for retail hopefully.
@Koach_CartER Exactly! Thats why I'm kinda glad I live in San Antonio, its a big city but sneakers do not sell out fast.
@Rsilva i remember i used to look at da retro card saying when will they release these but now they're all out smh
@Rsilva People like you chose to make it some kind of game. In reality, It's called fashion! And like history, it always repeats itself! Still find it funny in 2012 that people are venting about certain J's getting the re re re re retroing treatment. Oh well, to each their own.
@Darrell_NC I understand and respect those who created this culture but u not gettin your pair before me buddy
@Lusinmader @Rsilva Yeah Co-sign on that... It's just lame ass people who think somehow they should be the only ones entitled to certain j's... Who gives a flying Fuck if some folk are getting a chance to cop certain j's they didnt have the chance to before? These salty "heads" are Lamer than the folks they brand "hypebeast"...
