A strange fact about the Air Jordan V “Grape” is that it’s so widely popular despite MJ never wearing them in a game. It has no special dunk or game-winner tied to it, but it was one of the first Lifestyle colorways of the Air Jordan Retro to hit the scene and was seen on Jordan’s feet on the cover of the Air Jordan Flight Collection look-book from 1990. Jordan Brand will indeed pair the Grapes with the “Black Grape” version later this year, which stands to be one of the coveted non-OG Retro releases of the year of the V. We’ve got a few weeks before the release date arrives, so check out the official Jordan Brand images below and stay tuned for a release on May 4th.
