Even though it took its colorway from the http://nba.com/hornets” target=”_blank”>Charlotte Hornets when the team hosted the http://nba.com/allstar” target=”_blank”>1991 NBA All-Star Game, there are no significant milestones tied to the http://jumpman23.com” target=”_blank”>Air Jordan V “Grape”, at least in terms of Michael Jordan’s career. However, the shoe gained a considerable amount of interest among sneakerheads since it was loosely promoted as “lifestyle model.” And the fact that someone by the name of http://willsmith.com/” target=”_blank”>Will “The Fresh Prince” Smith publicized them on the television sitcom Fresh Prince of Bel-Air quickly made the “Grape” a must-have in everyone’s sneaker collections.
Now that http://jumpman23.com” target=”_blank”>Jordan Brand has made May 4th the official re-release date, it is interesting to know that the “Grape”, one of the four original colorways launched between the 1990-1991 season, was re-launched one other time back in 2006. So mark your calendar now or you might have to wait another 7 years for the next release.
