- To celebrate Will Smith’s 50th birthday, Nike released this Air Jordan 5 Retro in honor of one of the actor’s most popular roles: The Fresh Prince. Inspired by the laceless AJ5 model that Smith was known to wear on the set of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, the NRG ‘Fresh Prince’ seals up the eyestays entirely and dresses the high-top in a Grape Ice and New Emerald colorway. The design’s clearest tribute to the sitcom can be found on the insole, where ‘Air Jordan’ branding appears in the same graffiti-style as the show’s title sequence. https://www.goat.com/sneakers/air-jordan-5-retro-nrg-fresh-prince-av3919-135
