We’ve waited seven years for the last Air Jordan 5 Retro “Grape” release and the time has finally come. Tomorrow, Saturday, May 4th the Grape 5′s return to Foot Locker store shelves and online. The Air Jordan 5 was the shoe worn by Michael Jordan during the 1990 season, and even though MJ never hit the floor in the “Grape” colorway, it is still widely popular because it was one of the few retro non-OG colorways we’ve ever seen on his feet. MJ was featured wearing them on the cover of the Air Jordan Flight Collection look-book from 1990 as well as the iconic Wheaties box. Similar to the 2006 version, the 2013 silhouette features a mostly white upper with emerald, grape and black accents throughout and the bold Jumpman logo on the tongue, heel and bottom sole. The main addition to the 2013 version is the icy blue outsole which gives the shoe some unique character.
The 2013 Air Jordan 5 Retro “Grape” releaseS tomorrow, Saturday May 4th in stores and online for $160. A full size run of kids grade school, pre-school and infant will also be available. We’ll also have a ton of fresh new gear, including caps, tee’s, shorts and socks to hook up with your kicks.
