The Air Jordan 5 Retro NRG "Fresh Prince" gets its inspiration from Smith's Fresh Prince of Bel-Air persona from the '90s TV show. Rather than concoct a new colorway like it did back in 2013, Jordan Brand looked to an OG influence for this release by reissuing the sneaker's "Grape" make up with a new twist.
Taking a cue from Smith's preference to wear the shoes without laces, this NRG retro comes in slip-on form without its traditional shoelaces, lace holes, and lace locks. Although the laceless feature has been met with mixed reactions, this will be the first time the "Grape" colorway has been re-released with its original Nike Air branding, so there's still appeal for purists.
The Air Jordan 5 Retro NRG "Fresh Prince" drops Tuesday, Sept. 25 for $190 from select Jordan Brand retailers.
