Air Jordan V “Black Grape” – Beauty Shots

June 5th, 2013 by / 51

A classic colorway will go lights out this Summer, as the Air Jordan V “Grape” style is set to morph into the black-based take shown here that has aptly c0me to be known as the “Black Grape”. The Air Jordan V “Grape” itself is considered to be one of the earliest “Lifestyle” colorways of the Air Jordan, veering off the lane of classic Chicago Bulls colorway and opting for a stylish purple and green. It was the highlight of the Air Jordan Flight Collection of Fall 1990, which featured matching athletic apparel that Jordan himself modeled in the official look-book, but the absence of a Chicago Bulls connection meant that Michael couldn’t be spotted in the shoes too often. Only random promo shots and a Wheaties box appearance remain as some of the few “Grape” moments for His Airness, but throughout the years the unique color arrangement has managed to establish itself as an icon of the entire Air Jordan legacy.

But enough about the “Grape”; you came here to see the “Black Grape” – a shoe that has been making its rounds for a while and has been long targeted as one of the must have Retro colorways of the season. The shoe stays very much true to its inspiration, but opts for a brand new upper, as the standard leather body has been replaced by a black synthetic nubuck, similar to the Air Jordan V “Black Metallic”. As a whole, the release comes off as one of the most tasteful pairs that we’ve ever seen to riff off an original look, and more than likely fulfills a “dream colorway” that a number of Air Jordan fans have probably had in mind since the early 90’s. Continue reading for a full set of photos featuring the Air Jordan V “Black Grape” given its proper due, and make sure you keep it locked on Sneaker News for further coverage of all of Jordan Brand’s marquee Air Jordan releases for 2013.

The Air Jordan V “Black Grape” releases on June 15th with a retail price of $160.

                                                              DA RAISINS 5

                    THE NAME PROPER NAME IS ... AIR JORDAN V Raisins

A raisin is a dried 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.

They look good, but bad. Awesome because of the Grape parts... but terrible because of the black. The grape just pops on the white silhouette. Just not as fresh on the black. And i dont mean that to be racist:P ...Maybe im just an original lover and it takes getting used to, but i'm not feeling it.

These are DOPE! Anybody that is passing I believe don't want to go through the trouble of trying to cop! These are black grapes they are the aqua 5's! Think of the aqua 8's! Second would u like to see a white aqua 8? I personally wouldn't! Third your precious grapes will look like doo doo after a few wears and start to look dingy & that white stitching starts to get dirty! So yes these are perfect to get more wear out of them! This is just my opinion & YES they are a quick strike!

@geeman4life @AljosaCikojevic They "hype" right now is to not purchase this sneaker.  Everyone and their mother has stated this sneaker is soooo "ashly larry" and they will not be copping.  Go to any sneaker forum/news site and 80% of people are posting this exact sentiment.
