Grails. That’s really all I need to say about the Jordan V Retro ‘Grape’. I remember when they came out when I was in 5th grade. I remember begging my parents to get them for me. I remember the usual “shoes should not cost more than $100” speech and going home empty handed. I remember Fresh Prince wearing them. I remember Jerry Seinfeld wearing them. Of course I remember the GOAT wearing them. It just wasn’t meant to be at the time. In 2006 they returned and I was in my first year of owning a home and money was tight. Wasn’t meant to be again. Then in the past few years the rumors started flying about a Grape/Laney V 2-pack. I followed every story, post, and photo with Christmas morning like excitement. Alas, not meant to be again. All of that anticipation is finally coming to an end this May 4th. Jordan brand is bringing back the Jordan V Grape and I can’t wait!! I don’t know what it is about this shoe that just caught me. Perhaps it was the difference in colors that strayed from the Bulls standard. Maybe it was my love for LJ and the Hornets at the time. Whatever it is the primarily white upper sitting atop that fighter jet inspired purple and emerald midsole and icy outsole is just a beautiful look. I was slightly concerned with what quality these would be given recent Jordan releases but after grabbing the Fire Red Vs this past weekend I am ready. Have you been waiting for this release like I have? Take a look at the extra photos below and let me know in the comments. May can’t get here soon enough!!!
