Another Comeback: The AJ5 ‘Purple Grape’

Another OG colorway is making a comeback.

The Air Jordan 5 ‘Grape’ originally debuted in 1990, and was the only OG colorway from Jordan Brand that strayed outside of the Bulls’ palette. Other versions later followed the original, culminating in a well-known 2018 take, ‘Fresh Prince,’ that gave a nod to Will Smith’s iconic character on TV. Now, it’s time for a refresh, and this 2020 version is a must-cop for Summer.

Purple suede sits atop the unmistakeable ‘Glass Bottom’ outsole. Black and New Emerald details on the lace-locks, Jumpman logo, and tongue make this colorway truly pop – not to mention the signature plane-inspired flames.

The Air Jordan 5 Retro ‘Purple Grape’ drops on jdsports.com on 7/8, and at select JD US stores.
