Anyone alive in the ‘90s could—and probably still can—sing you the story word for word. The one that started with a scuffle on a West Philadelphia playground and ended with a throne in a Bel Air mansion. When he stepped out of the cab and into his new kingdom, the Fresh Prince was rocking a pair of ‘Grape’ Air Jordan Vs.
This September 25th, America’s beloved Fresh Prince turns 50, (Will Smith, for anyone residing under a rock). In order to celebrate the occasion properly, Smith has teamed up with Jordan Brand to bring a re-release of the Air Jordan 5 ‘Grape’ color way, made popular by our royal highness himself.
In general, the shoe is re-issued as the original, with some special-edition details that throw it back to the legendary sitcom. Featuring a “West Philadelphia” hit below the tongue plate, paying tribute to Smith’s hometown, the kicks also include bold, custom, striped insoles in Pink and Yellow with a printed “Air Jordan”, designed in the show’s legendary title font. Each side is then finished off with a lace-less application system--a cryptic homage to the individual, slip-on style of the Jordan 5s that Smith constantly wore on set.
