Air Jordan 5 “Alternate Grape”

The Air Jordan 5 Alternate Grape colorway has seemingly been a mystery as there have been rumblings of the shoe that dates back a year ago. So much has been planned for the 5’s already with Virgil Abloh giving us his rendition of the iconic model during NBA All-Star Weekend. Now the release of the “Alternate Grape” is coming to fruition and and is set to release next month.

This vibrant colorway gets its name from one of the more popular colorways in the Air Jordan 5 series and is constructed of a mostly suede upper in a purple hue. Other standout features of the sneaker include the aqua blue Jumpman on the tongue with matching lace locks.

Release date is scheduled for some time in April, check back for more info.


The Air Jordan 5 “Top 3” | Release Details

Virgil Abloh’s Off-White brand has left some big shoes to fill for the Air Jordan 5 silhouette as far as 2020 is concerned with the release of his version during NBA All-Star break.

We now have some additional images of the upcoming “Top 3” colorway. This silhouette combines past versions of the Air Jordan 5 sneaker like the “Fire Red,” “Metallic,” and “Grape.” Features of the “Top 3” include hits of aqua blue and purple hues on the tongue, the mostly black “Metallic” upper and midsole molds featuring “Fire Red” “23” stitching and red on the soles.

Catch all the details and more in the images above. Release date is scheduled for May 16th with a price point of $200 USD.


Virgil Abloh introduced “The Ten” collection with Nike back in 2017 and ever since then it seemed that the sneaker industry shifted in a way that was geared more towards creativity than just putting out colorways. Abloh’s design scheme seemed to focus on the deconstructed aspects of the sneaker as we saw almost a “rough completion” of the overall silhouette that really made it stand out from a normal or general release.

The collab on the Jordan 5 model features Abloh’s signature design on the classic “Metallic Black” makeover utilizing a slightly translucent upper, with holes added on the mid-foot caging, ankle area and along the left side of the tongue. The traditional Beaverton, Oregon branding can be seen in it’s usual spot on the side under the cage. For those looking to pick up a pair, they will be releasing on and at select retailers for $225 during NBA All-Star Weekend on February 15th.
