    Definately 5s. I'm on a sk3, but they may be OG Grapes.

    Wish I could be more help.

    Not OG grapes. fckn n00bs.

    Im not sure of the real story behind them, but supposedly he had them customized by BJ.

    This was floating around the web around a year ago.

    DEFINITELY not grapes. Could have been almost any of the nubuck releases to begin with. Looking at the Jumpman on the tongue, I'd say Burgundy as well. Tome though... Whether or not they started out as genuine, by the time you alter them that severely they no longer are real. Shouldn't be done to Jordans. Dowhat you want with forces and dunks.

    Bro, I don't think you can be anymore wrong than this. Might be some customs, but at the end of the day they are trash. I still f**ks w/ Drake though, butthose shoes are terrible...

    What is wrong with some of you? You have no knowledge at all of Jordans and you come in and make ******ed statements. Where did you get that from?

    Im pretty sure these are legit

    for those of you who dont know Drake
    you will soon...
    he's better than Wayne in my book
    ever heard of rumors of someone ghostwriting for Wayne? Guess who the writer is...





    LeBron even hosted his mixtape release party (Post from Drakes blog below)
    Lebron James has not only co-signed this mixtape but has also decided to attend and host the celebration. Both men, masters of their craft share acommon interest in good music, good parties, and good people. So on Wed. Feb. 18th @ 10pm you are invited to celebrate the release of Toronto's mostanticipated mixtape in history. This Mixtape is a world class product of Toronto. See you there!
