It can be a supreme test of patience waiting for your grails to return. In the case of the Air Jordan V Retro ‘Grape’, we’re talking about a universally heralded design that’s one of the AJ Legacy’s defining moments. It’s only been retroed once, but 2006 feels like forever ago, especially when the three-plus months remaining until the return seems like an eternity. The thirst for ‘Grape’ Five flavor is growing and figures to fuel one of the spring’s most significant sneaker releases, of which a large set of detailed images awaits your click on the jump below. Let us know where this 1990 time capsule piece ranks in your personal pantheon and stick with Sneaker News as we approach the May 4th release date.

i remember copping the last joints, went through hell to get em still ended up getting taxed 250 for em BACK THEN in 06. So yall better buckle up this shit gonna be concords x10 sorry to say save a little extra
I missed out on the 06' but i had the OGs when i was a kid tho...I'm gonna need these when they drop ASAP!
Imagine if these had an icy-white sole, and 'Nike Air' on the heel...
I still think that day might come. Can only dream.
Top 5 of my favorite sneakers of all time. If I can't get them for retail, I'll pay reseller prices fort these. Which I usually refuse to do.
lol I already have an outfit in the summer for this... hornets SB, camo shorts, purple "catch of the day shirt" perfect.
@Jumpfan23 like you irritated the shit out of me with that dumb shit
@Jumpfan23 lmfao dude its 160 plus a lil tax, you just got robbed. These were never worth more than 11s come on now. You really get robbed.
@Lemons2 Lemons do not cop these
@caseyflinders no thanks
@caseyflinders I think the blueish tint on the clear outsole parts sets these off perfectly! But on the Fire Red V's that just dropped....nope.
@Born2fly Bruh, camo shirts aint it no more and all that purple is too much we get it they're "grape" fives.
@Born2fly I had no other choice i came up emty handed after driving to countless spots so i went to the only place i knew they would have em my size and all but everything comes with a $ sign. Again this was in 06. Just sharing my experience with these grails
@SneakerCraze @caseyflinders the icy blue in person on the fire reds really isn't that blue. It looks more blue in photos for some reason. Imo
@john_dough @Born2fly i love how the youngins try to act like "they" invented a trend with FASHION STAPLES "blazer jackets ain't hot not no more" Dude we never stopped rocking blazers. "Button up shirts are the shit" I've been rocking button down them since birth. "Plaid shirt to match kicks Wale started that" NO HE DIDN'T "camo anything..." CAMO AINT NEVER LEFT. Just cause a small minority of people suddenly discover new options in fashion, does not dictate what the majority of fashion conscious wear.
@john_dough Dont worry about my style... the shirt is white with purple writing. I dont follow no ones trend thank you.
@Born2fly @CreatedByLeon1 your a real big threat on the keyboard. You need to chill dude take a xnanax from your.momys med cabinet, who gives a fuck what bothers you, obviously your the only one on thia whole blog that has an issue whith what i wrote nothing you say is going to make a difference on anything. Besides it aint like anyone here really gives a fuck what you think.
@CreatedByLeon1 get off my dick lil faggot... When I see something that doesn;t make sense i confront people. Mind your fucking business lil boy.
@Born2fly I swear you are a bitch nigga i see you on here all the damn time starting shit. like shut the fuck up he was sharing his experience with these. and "taxed" doesn't technically direct to 'Tax" the fact that you didn't understand was you're fault.
@NewSneakerScent @imkennyypowers757 u want a Grammy for having shoes older than me u bitch ass? And nobody was talking u cunt @NewSneakerScent
@SneakerCraze @IgotthatFIRE Damn you mean velour isn't cool anymore?!?! Shit what am I goin to do with this triple xl fubu jumpsuit??? Lol
@IgotthatFIRE LOL@Purple Velour
So if you truely wanna rock em go old school.
These days there's nothing you can't wear.
Solong as you stand by your style it will allways be cool.
It's allways the daring people that impress us, watch Kanye West.
He wears leather skinny jeans and leather skirts and dress like t-shirts.
When you here about it you think it sucks, but when you see him rocking it standing by his choice you see it looks cool.
