With 2019 involving quite a few flipped variations of the colorways we’ve grown to love, it seems 2020 will be much for fevered by comparison, introducing new schemes, 1985 revivals, and now an Air Jordan 5 “Alternate Grape.” Utilizing the signature tones made near iconic back in the 90s, the pair arrives heavily saturated, swapping out the white smooth leathers for the purple in distinct and textural suede fabrications. Each and every panel is set to receive the same treatment, while cages, eyestays, and laces neutralize in their swathe of total black. Midsoles follow suit save for their icy bottoms and light blue spiked accents, matching that of the lace toggle right on center stage. Tongues, which emblazon with the signature Jumpman iconography are set onto a backdrop of lighter silvers. Though just a rendering, you can get a good of what’s in store for down the road right below thanks to @zsneakerheadz; if you’re looking to pick up a set for yourself when the time comes, keep it locked in as we update as information becomes available.
