Update 03.12.20 // First looks at the “Purple Grape” Air Jordan 5 have arrived, and are pretty close to the mock-ups provided above and below, although the suede does arrive with a significantly bluer-hue than initially thought and it does appear that Nike Air branding will not be stitched into the heels. Take a look at the OG post and first looks further below.
Update 10.05.19 // A release date for the Air Jordan 5 “Purple Grape” has been penciled in for June 27th, according to notorious leaker @DJFolk. Stay tuned for more.
OG Post 05.17.19 // 2020 marks the 30th anniversary of the Air Jordan 5, and with it will see a flurry of colorways, new and old, OG and otherwise. And today we’re getting the first word of a retro release for next year, and it comes in the form of a “Purple Grape”. It serves as an alternate for the OG, which first released in 1990, and has since seen two other alternate takes in 2015’s “Pre Grape” and 2013’s “Black Grape.” The latter was originally rumored to return when the news broke yesterday, a story that was quickly quashed by sneaker leaker @DJFolk shortly after via Twitter, saying that the pair will indeed be purple-based.
