New Air Jordans 2019 focus on bringing back its heralded classics in their original forms has been met with praise, but for the upcoming re-issue of the Air Jordan 5 "Grape", the Jumpman is taking on a fresh approach by honoring a television show that has imprinted a permanent mark in cultural history. The beloved "Grape" Air Jordan 5s are returning to retailers later this month with some subtle modifications as a nod to the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. While the kicks will still feature the familiar white leather upper accompanied by hits of emerald green, purple and black, this time around they'll come without laces.
The Air Jordan Shoes is gearing up for its collaboration with The Fresh Prince of Bel Air's leading man, Will Smith. The partnership sees the arrival of two limited edition sneakers, both of which take cues from the "Grape" Jordan V colorway, which Smith famously wore while playing a fictionalized version of himself in the '90s sitcom. The laceless shoes feature a white upper with purple accents on the tongue and midsole. Elsewhere, shoppers can find custom pink and yellow insoles while Jumpman Branding is located throughout.
2019 Jordan is set to celebrate the Fresh Prince aka Will Smith's 50th birthday by releasing the Air Jordan 5 Fresh Prince on September 25th. Wearing Air Jordan icons during his on screen come up, Will Smith's youthful style helped further cement the Air Jordan line's place in pop culture. Now in 2018, his own unique touch on the original Air Jordan 5 becomes a footwear reality. Additional details include "West Philadelphia" text debossed just below the puffy purple tongue, Fresh Prince-inspired insoles and emerald green "Nike Air" branding on the heel.
