You know you’re a skilled sneaker customizer when Jordan Brand codifies your work into an official release.  On the other hand, black nubuck has been very good to Air Jordans, and the purple/teal combo is a perfect two-for-two flawless victor in the Legacy.  So the ‘Black Grape’ Air Jordan V is a born winner, a design whose rich pedigree finds a proud heir.  Between these, the ‘Oreo’ and the GS Floridians-ish colorway, there’s a ton of velvety black AJVs on the horizon (not to mention the hotly anticipated ‘Grape’ OG), so have a closer look at this would-be ‘Aqua’ Jordan 5 after the jump and stick with Sneaker News for more details.

tbh I don't really like the Grapes, love the 5 model but I'd take the Metallics and Fire Reds over them any day. I think the Laney's are better as well. But these here seem like a custom to me they're ok but nothing to drool over, maybe if they were leather n not nubuck

These are ok, the white grape 5's are way better to me, just a Aqua 5 version of Aqua 8s, a ton of 5s I can put in front of these Fire red 5s, Lancy 5s, Raging Bulls etc.....

These aren't terrible. I'm sure detailed photos will sway some people's opinion, but I still choose Aqua 8's over these any day

I like these. I think most people aren't feeling them because its an altered version of the grapes. These are just as good though.

@SneakerCraze Exactly what Im saying looks way better than the whit grapes. 10x better than them ugly shits.

@Born2fly I see. You're one of those "If Nike makes it, I like it" types huh? You don't have an opinion, huh? Fuck outta here. We "complained" about the no "Nike Air" - boom! We raised sand about the grapes and laneys - boom! You, my friend, can go headbutt a steak knife.

@Born2fly really tho. I know most of us had probably been wanting to see what the grapes would look like in black for while anyway.

@TheNatural either way you still polly gonna cop just like every other sheep talking shit up here. I wouldn't be surprised if they will be sold out everywhere and dumn niggas sleeping on a damn street like animals just to get one pair.

@KevinEarnhardt I agree, those do look better than the white, but elephant grey 5s are tough, the grape whites are fire and black metallic is still sick. But I will try n cop

@TheNatural @Born2fly lol so you find it cool to tell me those things over some sneakers? Your life must suck. You faggots find anything to fucking say, if you dont like something shut the fuck up and dont buy it. Your little dick suckin ass would still be the first nigga camping for these. Lame ass lmfao. I havent ever heard someone complain about fucking ASH!!!!! Yall want lotion in a box with your jays? Fuck is wrong with yall, go kill yall self

@AswaggSoRite @TheNatural Not u too?! Yo what the fuck about my comment says these shoes aren't coppable? A respectable response would be u agreeing or disagreeing with my ideas for upgrades. Obviously JB isn't gonna release kicks that look as bad as this pic. and u late as hell btw.

@KevinEarnhardt It's obvious you are the hype beast because I'd take Metallic's and Fire Reds over grapes any day.

@TheNatural @Born2fly Adults these days at least im mature enough to realize these are just sneakers. You can have an opinion but you guys ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS find some little BS to say. "ASH" really? "Our culture" yeah i certainly dont what a part of your culture its only sneakers buy it if you like, if you dont like dont buy. You are absurdly self righteous lol. JB isn't listening to a damn thing because all of you are sleeping outside for the shit, money is coming in, your opinion doesn't matter. Simple. Maybe its time for you to give up the sneaker crap .

@Born2fly @TheNatural Kids these days smh. You're the one who said "stfu" - about having an opinion?! You obviously are young and have no respect for OUR culture. The point is, we as consumers don't appreciate JB using bummy materials (amongst other things they do wrong). So we express our opinion here so hopefully JB notices, and changes for the better. Relax young buckaroo.
