Last week’s Sneaker News “Beauty Shots” of the Air Jordan V “Black Grape” was probably the final nail in the coffin in regards to your response to the release. Those who were “on the fence” were likely pushed over with great force into another Saturday sneaker purchase, while those who already considered these a must-have only found the wait tougher to endure. The original Air Jordan V “Grape” – one of the most revered OGs in the entire Air Jordan catalog – was already met with a great response when it re-released one month ago, and we figure the Black Grapes will experience the same simply because it tightly grasps that heralded “Grape” motif while embodying a whole new identity.

The “reversal” of colorways is hardly a new concept with sneakers as “Reverse” and “Un-” prefixes have been thrown around with sneakers for years. The mere replacement of yin for yang has been in use in basketball sneakers for decades with the idea of “Home” and “Away”, but other releases, like the Grape/Black Grape, have employed the exterior color-flip either arbitrarily or as part of a deeper concept. With the Black Grape finally releasing this weekend, we decided to look back at some of the best “Color Flips” of the past, so check out the gallery below and let us know which of these duets you enjoyed the most.
