It is not uncommon for Jordan Brand to release accompanying apparel alongside the major Air Jordan Retro releases. Contemporary graphic design is obviously a lot more advanced, but no design today can touch the vintage motif provided by a true piece of Jordan apparel history. Yesterday we showed you a nice collection of warm-ups that featured the iconic Elephant print and others that matched the Air Jordan VI Infrared. Here’s a look at a set of nylon zip-ups, warm-up pants, and sweatshirts that go hand in hand with one of the greatest model + colorway combos of all time – the Air Jordan V (5) Grape.
The alternate colored panels, piping accents, and the Flight logo sitting atop a weathered frame graphic were all fitting of that time, but this collection of vintage Air Jordan apparel designed for the early 90’s seems to show no age. Back when Air Jordans were primarily used as performance shoes, the gaudy design and exorbitant amount of coloring matched perfectly with the breakthrough design of the Air Jordan V. Take a trip down memory lane (for some of you at least) and check out the gallery of great vintage Air Jordan apparel after the jump. Images via Flattophitop.
