Just two weekends into the New Year and the OG Air Jordan re-issue channel is wildly impressive. Jordan Brand has another original Air Jordan ripe for the picking this May 4th when the beloved ‘Grapes’ make their return after a first-ever Retro in 2006. There’s no doubt that these will be among the most coveted of the year, punching its ticket to the year-end “best of” lists (including our Top 30 of 2013, which we’ve already started working on). A new set of photos is ready for viewing below, so take a look and let us know if these are a must-have for you!
Air Jordan V “Grape”
White/New Emerald-Grape-Ice Blue
New to the game or not... everyone is going to cop these. Hypebeasts and resellers are going to try to get their hands on them too. Whether you 'OG SNEAKERHEADS' like it or not, you have to pass on your fetish to the new generation. You guys might've started in 85, in the 90's, or even in the early 2000's, but we are the new era of jays. Ya can't live like this forever, considering you guys should be on ya damn ass looking for a job. Remember the guy who traded his car for a pair of Galaxy Foams?? yeah he's a sneakerhead now, while walking around with his Galaxy's instead of driving his car he traded. And the guys that got killed, OHH THATS ALL PAST US RIGHT? How about we take are of violence instead of kicking kids out the sneaker game. Im a 14 year old posting better shit than a 21+ man, just let that sink in.
Might have to amend my rule for myself on "one to rock one to stock" cause these are just too clean. These look like Summer beaters...
Does every pair come with a different lacelock I mean this is the 3rd different color I've seen first red then purple now black
I'm most def coppin but like the 88s these have gotten posted to death now all these 15 year old kids r fallin into the hype which is gonna make it hard for all the OG sneaker heads to grab em
Shit im trying to get the 88 retros, the phoneix foams, then these grapes..I genuinely like them all but I have to skip out on one.
Can't wait! Grapes are too sick. Gotta make sure someone can cop for me if this date doesn't change tho
Super Clean @Swagga Dagga
@PablitoHernandez young muthafuckers we don't have 2 pass up shit..true to this not new to this,plus most of y'all don't even keep ya shit clean couple weeks later shits are trashed,so most of these releases I don't have to go cop already got them muthafuckers
@PablitoHernandez you are the type of kid that is ruining the sneaker game
@PablitoHernandez omfg thank you, thats what ive been trying to tell these n*ggas man. If you are an og you were that same kid hyped over jays, now you're older a new generation has been created. Them dudes are so damn selfish and its petty stuff. One day, id be considered an og lol. But of course i dont care to own titles for petty s*it
i hope you're been sarcastic with this statement
@inTheNameofQuen You ain't neva lie!!!
@inTheNameofQuen I noticed that too, hmmmm
@ShoeGame514 i mean, you're grown doing teenager shit. If you gonna talk like that go buy the ogs or something, you grown ass losers fuck shit up for the younger folks which you once was. Give it up and pay bills and support the fam.
@ShoeGame514 I mean hopefully you're NOT a grown ass man pass the age of 22 posting on a sneaker blog about shoes. Sounds like something those 15 year olds would do.
@Born2fly Im on the same shit...i want all 3 of them plus the royal blue 1's...
@boodle81 same here, may 4 all day
@boodle81 the bred 4s came out on mines i felt honored 11/23 lol
nd i understand, ya got connects, we dont need your help with shit either. So listen clearly. These young nikkas like me dont care what you guys say, they'll cop anything. Me, i get what looks good to me. Im not a hypebeast. Js. and jordans arent the only kicks in my closet either.
LMAO my nikka shutup. Your a hypebeast. im not one of them. But one day while your ass is sitting outside in your throne of jays while your house is being disclosed, ima laugh in ya face.
Born2fly, back then been a young kid hyped over Js was different, youngins back then grew up watching MJ in his prime and know the history of the shoes he wore during those games. the new gen just wanna copp Js to impress girls, resell or jump the bandwagon.
@Lil Shaun yea man. But i think imma go and spend 3 something with the graps and foams versus getting all 3 and paying 500 something.
@CK16 first of all calm the fuck down, you're 21 act like one. if you're not a hypebeast or reseller props then, welcome to the club. of course there's no age to know the history of Js, but majority of "new gen" are lacking the knowledge.
@Enrik fuck that enrik. im 21, and im a basketball player/lover first, and just cus i like shoes too doesnt make anyone of those things. there are hypebeasts of all ages not just kids, plus resellers are all sorts of ages its not just "new gen" or whatever bull shit your callin us. you dont have to be old to know/appreciate the history, you just need a fuckin brain and an opinion
Lmao your right, but im only 14, and i know jays by heart, while kids my age still be on the hypebeast bandwagon, like i said i buy what i like, not by the hype.
@juelz203 @SkilledHooper82 lol yeah but still i really like sneakers and i have about 16 pairs. I dont feel right having all this shit though for some reason.
