Release Reminder: Air Jordan 5 Alternate Grape

The Jordan 5 Alternate Grape, first rumored in 2019, only existed in mock-ups until recently. The first and on-foot glances couldn't have come at a better time as official images of the Jordan 5 "Fire Red" surfaced this week alongside speculation that Virgil Abloh has another Off White Jordan 5 in the works. Like the latter, the "Alternate Grape" shares Fresh Prince approved "New Emerald" shark tooth shapes on the midsole. This vibrant hue also inherits Jumpman logos on the tongue and lacing, as in the 2013 'Black Grape' version of the '90s silhouette. 'Black' complements the flair of the era in the throat and midsole, allowing the abundant suede panels on the upper to bear the "Grape Ice" that is responsible for this AJ5's nickname.
