Greg Street’s Sneaker Of The Week: Air Jordan 5 Retro “Grape”
The Pick: Jordan 5 Grape
The Date: May 4
The Price: $235
The Look: After having established red, black and white as its primary colors, the Air Jordan series moved to this “grape” colorway in 1990. This is a near-perfect replication of the originals, minus the Nike Air blue tinted bottom pre-dyed sole to slow the yellowing process
The Feel: Smooth leather throughout the upper serves as the foundation, with netting on both side panels for easy ventilation.
The Reason: “This past Saturday Jordan heads around the world lined up, camped out, hit eBay, etc. to get their hands on a pair of these!”
