Another nickname for these Air Jordan Retros that has popped up is the Air Jordan V “Aqua”. While we do see the connection with the popular Air Jordan VIII colorway, we’ll point out that “Aqua” comes from the use of “Aquatone” – which this Air Jordan V does not. Aqua has a bit more of a blue tone compared to the New Emerald, although it’s hard to tell when paired with the purple and black upper. 2013 is shaping up to be an amazing year for Air Jordan V lovers, so are these a must-have for you, or are you in the hunt for the OG Air Jordan V “Grape” and the upcoming Laney release? Let us know in the comments below and stay tuned for a release date on the Air Jordan V “Black Grape”.

The word raisin is reserved for the dark-coloured dried large grape ...
The word raisin dates back to Middle English and is a loanword from Old French; in French, raisin means "grape", while a dried grape is referred to as a raisin, or dry DARK grape The Old French word in turn developed from the Latin word racemus,a bunch of grapes.
It is funny how ppl were calling these aqua's when the 5's have no relations with the 8's colorwise. Close in color yes but still there very different. Any jordan guy or shoe guy will tell you all they did was swap out the white leather for a black upper. Nothing went nowhere its all there, the colors on the white grapes are the same as the ones on the black grapes. Again how do you confused let alone call these the aqua 5's.
lol atleast they read the comments cuz i got pissed 2 or 3 times saying the same exact thing that aqua was the color used to nickname aquas not the materials. they already knew the color is emarld so why they are just now correcting it cool but its funny how they try to seem like they already knew what they were talking about
