Originally released in 1990, the Air Jordan V ‘Grapes’ wasn’t as an instant hit as you might’ve thought, even if the likes of the Fresh Prince and King Ralph were sporting a pair. Designed as a trainer to relax and recuperate, rather than actually play basketball in, the AJ V ‘Grapes’ gradually started to receive its illustrious status and can even be unofficially linked to the Charlotte Hornets, due to the emerald green colour.
Coincidentally 23 years later, the ‘Grapes’ are back in their illustrious lifestyle form, presented with a premium white leather upper and coloured accents throughout that are as near to the original as Jordan dare to produce.
The Air Jordan OG V ‘Grapes’ will be available from all size? stores later on today (04/05/2013) and online now – HERE, in sizes 6 – 12 (UK), priced at £135/€170.
