Taken its inspiration originally from the Charlotte Hornets team colors when it hosted the 1991 NBA All-Star Game, the vibrantly adorned Air Jordan V gained a fellowship in no time. The iconic edition found itself nearly in every conceivable sneaker collections at the time, including a fictionalized one by Will “The Fresh Prince” Smith on thetelevision sitcom Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. And because of its unexpected success, Jordan Brand elaborated on the design theme further with the introductions of Air Jordan VII “Aqua” (1993) and Air Jordan XI “Concord” (1995).
Only re-released one time before in 2006, the upcoming launch of this Rare Air is definitely something any sneakerheads will not want to miss. However, in order satisfy the most rabid Jumpman fans out there, Jordan Brand devised an entire “Grape Collection” from head to toe. Curated to be the next iteration of Champs Sports‘ The Game Plan, now you can sweeten your AJ5 purchase with an entire matching ensemble. And the best part, the whole can be put together during a one-time stop at your local Champs Sports on April 17th.
