Celebrating 35 Years of the Air Jordan 5 with the Return of the Grape Colorway

In 2025, the Air Jordan 5 celebrates its 35th anniversary, and Jordan Brand is planning a special release to mark the occasion. Early reports suggest that the iconic Air Jordan 5 “Grape” will make a comeback. This colorway was one of the original four released in 1990 and quickly became a pop culture sensation. Will Smith famously wore the "Grape" in the intro and several episodes of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, and Michael Jordan himself appeared wearing them on a Wheaties box cover.

The Legacy of the "Grape" Colorway

The Air Jordan 5 “Grape” has a storied history and a strong connection to the early '90s. It first hit the shelves in 1990 and was retroed for the first time in 2006 as part of Jordan Brand’s LS (lifestyle) series. It returned again in 2013 and saw a special "Fresh Prince" edition in 2018 to celebrate Will Smith's 50th birthday. This version featured an elastic collar instead of laces, reflecting how Smith wore his pair on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.

Additional "Grape" Variants

Over the years, the "Grape" theme has inspired several other colorways. In 2013, a "Black Grape" version was released, followed by an "Alternate Grape" edition in 2020.  Lastly we even saw a golf-specific "Black Grape" version in 2020. Each of these variations has maintained the iconic status of the original "Grape" while adding new twists to its design.
