Will Smith’s Fresh Prince of Bel-Air character inspires the Air Jordan 5 Grape

Will Smith’s flashy outfits and use of colours from the iconic TV show, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air inspires the Nike Air Jordan 5 Grape.

Jordan Brand had already nodded that the Fresh Prince’s influenced the silhouette’s legacy with 2013’s Bel-Air 5s, but now they’re taking the inspiration even further with a recently revealed 2018 repetition of the Grape 5s.

The most instantly noticeable design twist is the striking absence of laces. Die-Hard Fresh Prince fans may recall that Smith wore the Air Jordan 5 laceless in the opening credits and throughout the show’s first season, so Jordan Brand has removed the normal laces and lace lock, and covered all the eyelets with a premium tumbled white leather.

Air Jordan 5 Grape will be out on September 25th 2018 – Will Smith’s 50th birthday.
