The Air Jordan V “Black Grape” will release tomorrow, June 15th. The colorway will be the first one this year to stray from the original colorways as far as the Air Jordan V is concerned. Of course it doesn’t stray too terribly far, sporting the same purple and emerald combo of its OG counterpart while merely flipping out the white base for a black one. The resulting shoe is one that’s got quite a bit of buzz going, with many folks applauding them as a proper new-age take on a classic look. See the Air Jordan V “Black Grape” once more after the jump and watch for them in stores tomorrow like Sneaker Politics or right now on eBay.

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.
and the quality of the nubuck is superb. after cleaning them up w a brush. the nubuck is great!! reminds me of suede. if u wip the nubuck w ur fingers the grain changes much like suede does. very satisfied.
picked mines up, coulda been better but also coulda been worse. the nubuck was pretty clean.. looks ashy tho. gota use a brush to brush em up since the grain is long. few manufacter scrathceds but almost all pair come w some sorta mftr flaw these days. other then that glad i copd. to the guy below that copd frm champs, thats why i dont pick up at champs. footaction, finishline or footlocker, thats IT!
Man fuck Jordan brand!!!! I won a raffle at Champs. Go in-store to pick my shoes up give them a quick look and buy. Go into another store with my chick while she try shit on. Pull my kicks out again geeked up.... Man their was a big ass slit in the suede next to the toe and they inner side of shoe was dengy as hell. I march right back in that bitch and I'm like yo these defected ass kicks man. I wanna exchange that's some bullshit. Bitch tell me coperate doesn't care, they know these idots will buy them anyways so they but b grade shit in stores too. Told me they can't get anymore from wear house or store. Flat out told me to take it or leave it. Told that snob ass bitch to put my money back on my fucking card. Fuck that man if I drop 2bills on shoes they better be on point. Fuck Jordan Brand!!!
These should still look good after 10 wears which = a good pair of jays to have. JB + Nike coming out with way too many shoes though I condensed my collection to about 300 pair now Im back up 330 since december thats like 5 shoes a month (feel like a woman) but i'd rather buy now than later.
@Sole_2_Sole I feel you... I wouldn't have mind if it was a minor scratch but damn that gash was deep. To the point you could tell the tear would grow even more with wear. I wish I would have taken a pic mines was super ashy like they been worn before. Yea finishline and footaction have never disappointed when i get lucky online. But I seem to only win Champs raffles. Guess I'm done fucking with them.
@RobEdwards1@Sole_2_Sole Jordan Brand does need to respect us some more! Prices going up and the quality hasn't gone in the same direction it seems.Even if you left the store with a pair that looked clean who knows what would happen after you start wearing em.
My cement 3s started to crack in the mid sole after the second time I wore them. My friends thunders had cracks in em after the first wear.
Even if you leave the store with them looking decent who knows how they will be god forbid you decide to actually put your feet in em.
As much as I complain I was found myself in line this morning for a pair of black grapes anyway. My pair turned out to be pretty clean actually. It's hit or miss sometimes. Now wait till I wear them....
