Both situated near the very top of the list of non-Bulls Air Jordan colorways, the Air Jordan V ‘Grape’ and Air Jordan VIII ‘Aqua’ share a common recipe for success: adding teal and purple accents to one of Tinker Hatfield’s masterpieces.  And seeing as we haven’t seen either retroed in recent years, sneaker customizer Rudnes decided to give us both in a single black leather package.  The Air Jordan V ‘From Grape to Aqua’ looks exactly as its name would suggest, though there’s no use of the VIII’s signature graffiti print as you might expect from a project of this sort.  Click through to see the blackout up close, let us know what you think and if a ‘Grape’ Air Jordan VIII is something worth executing.  via Paint or Thread

If the Air Jordan VIII Aqua traveled 19 years into the future, it would see its ‘doppleganger’ in the Air Jordan 8.0. Featuring some structural upgrades like the breathable mesh panels and Flywire-laden crossing mid-foot straps, the Air Jordan 8.0 captures both the nostalgic flavor and new-age design that has been the formula for most of Jordan Brand’s non-Retro releases over the last few years. Set to release this January, 2012, the Air Jordan 8.0 ‘Aqua’ features the paint-splatter bumper that extends to the midfoot, which doubles as a spring plate for performance-friendly push. We’ve got additional images for you after the jump, so take a look and let us know if this ‘Aqua’ colorway provides some ‘umph’ to this new model.

Imagine you’re a young artist staring at an empty canvas.  It happens to the best of us from time to time, either too much to say at once or a mind as blank as the surface will leave you in search of inspiration.  Chicago-based street artist Kristoffer Mac aka Koca Monarchy walked his Stash Air Force 1s over to a museum where the tortured quest continued in vein until he found an unexpected treasure sitting on a bench in pristine condition.  From the Air Jordan VIII ‘Aqua’ he ‘found’ Kris created his latest piece, a close-up of the Eight’s unmistakable midsole streaking along with a re-branded ankle strap, and you can see the video of how it came to be when you click on the jump below.
