We saw another retro of the shoes occur in 2013. Once again, the Jumpman was used instead of the original Nike Air branding. Fans of the silhouette and color blocking wanted the shoes, but many complained about the craftsmanship, material, and overall shape. The last time we saw the “Grape” Air Jordan 5 release was in 2018. This version was dubbed “Fresh Prince” and celebrated Will Smith’s 50th birthday. Since Will wore the pair in episodes without laces, this rendition lacked laces, and the eyelets weren’t punched out, allowing fans to wear them just like the Fresh Prince.

The 2025 iteration will come dressed in a White, New Emerald, Grape Ice, and Black color scheme. Jordan Brand will also update the mold to resemble the 1990 shape. It is built with White leather across the upper with the signature translucent mesh netting on the panels and tongues. Highlighting the shoes is Purple on the tongues with an Emerald Jumpman, while the same hue forms the embroided Nike Air branding on the heels. A mixture of Black, Grape, and Emerald form the midsole, while a translucent rubber outsole completes the design.
