It's been 22 years since Will Smith said smell ya later to Bel-Air, but the Fresh Prince's impeccable footwear legacy lives on. As previously rumoured, Jordan Brand are saluting one of TV's all-time greatest sneakerheads with a special edition Air Jordan 5.
The AJ5 'Fresh Prince' is a modified version of the iconic OG 'Grape' colourway that features a few sly nods to Big Will. The special make-up goes sans laces — just as Will liked to wear them — and features the name 'West Philadelphia' embossed on the tongues. There has been no further mention of whether this is an official colab or just a tribute.
According to Sneaker Bar Detroit, the Air Jordan 5 'Fresh Prince' is slated for release on Will Smith's 50th birthday, September 25.
