After Will Smith’s hilarious unveil for his new “Fresh Prince” Air Jordan 5, releasing on the famed actor’s 50th birthday, Jordan Brand is giving us an even closer look at the super limited colorway.
Inspired by Smith’s actual pair of laceless Grape 5s that he used to rock on set of the hit ’90s sitcom, this special AJ5 release recreates the style to a tee, including the OG Nike Air branding on the heel. The shoe is updated with a Fresh Prince-inspired insole that uses the yellow/pink color theme and typeface style synonymous with the show’s opening credits. Definitely one shoe that just makes you want to go, “Innnnn West Philadelphia, born and raised!”
The extremely limited Air Jordan 5 NRG “Fresh Prince” drops on Big Willie’s b’day (September 25), as well as an even more exclusive “Friends and Family” gold edition limited to 23 pairs. See pics of the more general of the two releases below:
