Just a few more days until the must-have catch of the Summer 2013 season is ready to be picked as the Air Jordan V “Black Grape” begins to make its way into retail stock rooms. Our gallery of “Beauty Shots” of these sick Jordans definitely impressed the masses, and for those who were iffy on these were probably pushed over the brink – but there’s no regrets here. Great quality, an outstanding colorway, and easy on the eyes – pretty much all that’s needed for an easy pick-up. Wish ATL is getting their pairs in as we speak so check out their detailed photos below and stay tuned for the official drop this Saturday.
Air Jordan V
Black/New Emerald-Grape Ice-Black
Can't wait to roc mines this weekend plus I can't wait for the Playoff 8's to drop....it's gonna be a great summer!
nubuck fucn sucks! BIG HAIRY MONKEY BALLS!!!! hate it when the crease on the toe box turns into what looks like the material has a bubble underneath it. other shit dont do that. it creases but doesnt look like a bubble crease. sucks! anyone else notice this??
Can't wait to roc mines this weekend....and I'm looking for to the Playoff 8's! Gonna be a great month
Some folks are gonna miss out where I'm from..
I won't be one of them.. missed the White graps.. being broke ain't no joke..
My cheese is stacked this time around..
Blacksanta has said these are Suede, folks on here are calling it Nubuck..
5's black grapes or 8's playoffs. These look more fresh to me. If i get the chance i'm definitely coping
^^ bro- my only suggestion is call youre local store and ask what time their cut off time is, meaning what time do those that have tix have till to claim the shoes. then hang out at the store before that end time. if youre lucky enough, someone maybe running late or simply said fuccit. otherwise resellers bro. lol
I'm so pissed i missed the ticket from Villa because they didn't give an alert on Twitter now I don't know what to do someone help
If i cop these they might be my last retro jordans because frankly im tired of all the BS store employees be giving me when it comes to the whole ticket thing some say first come first serve but then they give out the tickets the day before the release and come release day i cant cop a pair because i got no ticket aint that a bitch, i have nothing against JB or their "quality issues" is the damn employees at the stores, hopefully i can cop them and im done with Js for awhile
My shoe store switched up the norm for this release, they handed out tix yesterday at 6pm opposed to 9 am on sat. I was on time and lucky enough to get a ticket (following the store on FB and being a regular helped. All i gota do is show up on Saturday. From what i can tell, store mgr had any where for 30-40 tickets.. norm would be 40-80. So yeah this QS. is limited. Glad he plugged me in.
Just got all of my tickets and sizes from FL and Champs. Best part, all of them say you have until 3pm, 5pm, and close to pick them up. Feels like a general release to me.
@greghall024 these prolly wont restock just like the cavs 4s wont.
@iloveepurplee like 115$ i think
@JayNovacaneGriffin durabuck. somewhere in between suede and nubuck
@Ndo365 check the production date to be sure they are authentic.
nah these clean, im just fuckin with yall just saying i prefer the classics. They should do this to the laneys
@JFresh_136 i will lol
Yh deez r a quickstrike release so they are more limited nikka. And the low 11s wer just a normal release but sold out everywhere fast and deez will sell out much faster and prob sell out in 10mins online
@Marvel4321 go to a first come first serve store im sure that there are atleast 1 in your area. i dont get kicks unless its first come first served because that ticket and raffle stuff is rigged when before my friend got fired he said finishline raffles choose who they want to win.
They did the ticket alert on Instagram
@diegoz95 so you stop after these? Or you still copin you get the Champ 6's? You gettin the DB 8's? You get all the Lab's?? You ready for the Pythonlab2's?
@calladito95 - totally 100% man.. thats why you gota be on top of you're game. shit if fuct up. pick one store an get familiar with their system. if their store doesnt work for you, find another. the more in tune you are, the easier the cop.
QS are fuckin dumb anyway... Why make a shoe limited when niggas want them... Its not like their not gonna sell out anyway... On top of stores fuckin wit customers on wat kind of system they doin, game all fucked up homie
@Lusinmader Lucky... I will be lucky if I camped and I even get to cop. What city bro?
@LxrdLeon - if i had a dollar for everytime i herad that.
Shame thought isn't it?..
Considering we're paying 219.00 AUD in Australia..
If I'm paying 220 for a Retro I'd expect top notch premiuim shit!
@Da_Real_Big_Infinite - super fucct bro.
@EVERYTHING_EPIC hes in tx, eww braunfels, seguin or san marcos..
