Jordan Brand has made more than it’s fair share from routinely re-releasing pre-existing color ways, all while hiking the price for inflation. This time around, sneaker heads have the most logical reason to camp out in years. This latest pair of Air Jordan 5s, dubbed The Fresh Prince of Bel Airs is an ode to one of the greatest sitcoms and actors of modern times.
Fans of Fresh Prince witnessed Will Smith rock the Air Jordan 5s on numerous episodes of the show, and now Jordan Brand has created a color way that the Prince himself would have begged uncle Phil to buy for him. The neon colors infused into the sneaker match the inside of his prep-school jacket, which he infamously wore inside out.
The best thing about this pair of Jays is that it’s kept simple with a gray nubuck body, allowing the insoles to be the loudest part of the shoe. Whether you keep this on a mantle, or you wear them for special occasions, this is something we’d all love to have in our sneaker collection. For $185, it could be yours.
