The Air Jordan V ‘Grape’ is one sneaker that’s not been around the block too many times. In fact, the original 1990 pair is the only chance you have at a version sporting the much obsessed-over ‘Nike Air’ branding on the back end. There are indeed some of those left out in the while, like this pair that’s been kept in deadstock condition since its debut over two decades ago (even the hangtag is still intact). Get a look at this OG Air Jordan V ‘Grape’ in our gallery after the jump and then check out the price tag on them from tbag5 on eBay.
All you people complaining about the price for an original shoe are hype beast you know nothing about the history of these shoes you guys didnt even see MJ play but yet want his kicks get outta here and go buy Lebronss shoes.
Nothin to sweat, these will release at least 3 more times within the next 9 years... Nothin is sacred at Jordan Brand
These were da 1st Js I bought wit my own money when I was 8... talk about memories.. Wit da big tall phat tongue.. definitely in my top 10 of best Js ever.
This is just 1990...and there was some dude on the retro III 88' (nike air) post wanting people to save money so they can buy the original III's back in 88 .....AND WEAR!! Instead of paying the price for febs release...lol
Great condition for the age. Some days I wish was around during the Initial original era. Will be getting these in may but hoping that date is moved
@andrik78 you clearly have a misconception of the phrase hypebeast. You 40 year old losers need to get out the game, only the ones that say dumbsh.t like you. Grow the fuck up. You dont have to know shit about a sneaker to like it and buy it. You get out of here, selfish bum.
22 years ain't bad though, and since I wear my shoes, mine will age quicker. Thats the one good thing about the JB bombardment of releases: Whatever you buy now, there's a high probability you'll be able to cop them again within 10 yrs if they're 1-13. It almost makes copping 1 to stock and 1 to rock a waste. By the time you feel the need to break out the 2nd pair, they'll probably re-release them. But if you wear the hell out of a particular pair because they're 1 of your top 5 favs, then I'd double up anyways. Thats why I got 2 bred 4s and I'm looking for a 2nd pair of bred 11s. You never know when some drunk floozy's gonna stand on your foot with her 4" heels. Happened to my freakin cool grey 11s. WOMEN
@BKE420 pretty much..
@Sole_Savey How is it rape its OG bro never to be seen again better quality then what will release in a few months its 23 years old bro antique get a clue.
The* With* With* The*
@dopeman978 why? Why WHY?
@dopeman978 Or you can buy the new ones. . . and you know WEAR them.
@Born2fly @andrik78 I have the misconception you jump into a game and try to think your cool like you know something and when you get called out you react like a typical hype beast you probably trade shoes and wear worn shoes which is loser stuff i buy my kicks and im the only one who wears them so go back to wearg converse which is probably what you wore until your friends started making fun of you loser go get your money up
at the end of the day its only a sneaker, & yeah i seen this years shitty release im done with retros
@kb24lal I see u took time outta ur busy schedule of suckin ur moms dick to talk to me.... go fuck yoself yo... no but u cares bout grammar & spellin... fuckin loser
@Born2fly because people bitch about the quality of the new retros, so why not spend (if you got it) on these and do a sole swap.
@Sensible_Swag just saying, these are nice with the nike air on the back. but i bet someone will take what i am saying and do it
@andrik78 lol and the funny thing is that i've worn jordans since birth and aleays knew about them. I still have an infant pair stored up somewhere. I buy my sneakers new and wear them, i dont have time for trades wtf? I actaully never owned a pair of converses and i do like them. You sound like the real hypebeast because nothing is wrong with converses at all and they are original. This aint nothing about money, you the same broke fool camping for jays
@kb24lal LOL... dat was da fuckin DUMBEST comment EVER lol... wat a punk ass bitch u are lol.. ooooh & fyi, mom died long time ago u fuckin lame .
@dopeman978 its not that serious though. The icy nets on the side are gonna yellow too... I mean you might as well just buy new, sneakers arent meant to last forever.
@dopeman978 @Born2fly But the side net&tongue r fucked,so they will be still off...jus sayn waste of doe NO HELP(z ro voice)
