Rumour: Will Smith's Getting Jiggy With Jordan Brand
The Fresh Prince is set to get even fresher with multiple leakers announcing that an official Will Smith x Jordan Brand colab collection is on the way. According to py_rates, the collection will consist of two tees, two hoodies and a special laceless version of the Air Jordan 5 'Grape'.
Why laceless 5s you ask? Because that's how Big Willie liked to rock 'em back in the day, as seen in multiple Fresh Prince episodes and publicity shots, one of which is featured on the collection's apparel.
But don't go thinking the colab's AJ5s are just a pair of Grapes with the laces removed. Sample shots leaked by SneakerJamz reveal that the shoe's standard plastic eyelets have been replaced with solid leather panels that have been dimpled to simulate lace holes. Instead of laces, we're going to guess there's some elastic at play on the inside to keep your feet snug. One other notable change is the addition of 'WEST PHILADELPHIA' debossing just below the tongue.
A release date hasn't been announced for the Will Smith x Jordan Brand collection, but rumour has it they'll be dropping soon. Could all of this have something to do with the Air Jordan 5 'Reverse Bel-Air' that leaked recently?
