A classic colorway will go lights out this Summer, as the Air Jordan V “Grape” style is set to morph into the black-based take shown here that has aptly c0me to be known as the “Black Grape”. The Air Jordan V “Grape” itself is considered to be one of the earliest “Lifestyle” colorways of the Air Jordan, veering off the lane of classic Chicago Bulls colorway and opting for a stylish purple and green. It was the highlight of the Air Jordan Flight Collection of Fall 1990, which featured matching athletic apparel that Jordan himself modeled in the official look-book, but the absence of a Chicago Bulls connection meant that Michael couldn’t be spotted in the shoes too often. Only random promo shots and a Wheaties box appearance remain as some of the few “Grape” moments for His Airness, but throughout the years the unique color arrangement has managed to establish itself as an icon of the entire Air Jordan legacy.

But enough about the “Grape”; you came here to see the “Black Grape” – a shoe that has been making its rounds for a while and has been long targeted as one of the must have Retro colorways of the season. The shoe stays very much true to its inspiration, but opts for a brand new upper, as the standard leather body has been replaced by a black synthetic nubuck, similar to the Air Jordan V “Black Metallic”. As a whole, the release comes off as one of the most tasteful pairs that we’ve ever seen to riff off an original look, and more than likely fulfills a “dream colorway” that a number of Air Jordan fans have probably had in mind since the early 90’s. Continue reading for a full set of photos featuring the Air Jordan V “Black Grape” given its proper due, and make sure you keep it locked on Sneaker News for further coverage of all of Jordan Brand’s marquee Air Jordan releases for 2013.

The Air Jordan V “Black Grape” releases on June 15th with a retail price of $160.
