Air Jordan 5 will be celebrating Will Smith's 50th birthday with a special edition Air Jordan 5 NRG "Fresh Prince" release. What really gives the shoe the Fresh Prince vibes is the decision to remove the customary lacing system by sealing the lace holes, resulting in a slip-on design, much like Will used to wear on your favorite 90's sitcom. It includes "West Philadelphia" text underneath the tongue, Nike Air branding on the heels, no laces (sealed lace holes) – as a nod to the way Will Smith wore them, and Fresh Prince inspired insoles.
Buy The Sneaker will be releasing a special version of the Air Jordan 5 inspired by the Fresh Prince of Bel Air. The colorway might be familiar, but the design, not so much. Dressed in a White, Grape Ice, Black, and New Emerald color scheme. This Air Jordan 5 looks exactly like the OG Grapes, but with some added detailing. Other details on the shoe include the "West Philadelphia" text underneath the tongue, Nike Air branding on the heels and Fresh Prince inspired insoles.
Buy New Jordans, Back in 2012 artist Rocketboy Nift changed the sneaker game when he gave us his version of the "Fresh Prince" Air Jordan 5 which brought custom kicks to the mainstream and even inspired Jordan brand to deliver its own take on the shoe. Four years later RBN comes back with a follow up which features three different 80s & 90s-themed prints on the upper, along with the original 2012 "Fresh Prince" Air Jordan 5 prints on the midsole and insoles. Both white speckles and hologram flakes finish off the look.
