A Look Back at Sneaker “Color Flips”

 Jordan V “Black Grape”

Jordan V “Black Grape”

The “reversal” of colorways is hardly a new concept with sneakers as “Reverse” and “Un-” prefixes have been thrown around with sneakers for years. The mere replacement of yin for yang has been in use in basketball sneakers for decades with the idea of “Home” and “Away”, but other releases, like the Grape/Black Grape, have employed the exterior color-flip either arbitrarily or as part of a deeper concept. With the Black Grape finally releasing this weekend, we decided to look back at some of the best “Color Flips” of the past.

Air Jordan III “Black Flip” and “Flip”

2007 introduced the “Flip” concept, which reversed the blocking of the elephant print and tumbled leather. 2011 took it further and create an all-black version to contrast with the original white.

Air Jordan IV “Lightning” and “Thunder”

One of the few concepts ever employed by Jordan Brand resulted in one of the best color-flipped colorways in history. This limited online-only release from years ago stands as the highest-priced individual Retro releases ever.

All-white and all-black – can’t get any more “reverse” than that. These releases of the Air Jordan III  Retro embodied a metaphorical persona of Michael Jordan – the Black Cat and Pure Money.

One for Euro customers only, the other for VIPs of VIPs. 2011′s Air Jordan V “Quai 54″ was joined by the Hyperstrike Friends-and-Family version in a black nubuck.

 

Air Jordan VIII “Aqua” and “2007 Aqua”

In 2007, Jordan Brand released another version of the “Aqua” using a white upper and added touches of the yellow and red (used as minor accents on the original Aqua). Even more “reverse” is that the flipped version was a women’s release.

Air Jordan XIII Low “Black/Maize” and “White/Maize”

“Home” and “Away” have always been represented with White and Black, but this set of Air Jordan XIII Retro Lows from 2005 weren’t close to Home or Away in the realm of Michael Jordan.
