In the early ’90s, Michael Jordan made his shoes fly on the hardwood and Will Smith kept them fresh on primetime TV.
While there were a handful of early 90s TV appearances for the Air Jordan line, no show gave them as good of a look as The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. As some might recall, Jordan Brand paid homage to the program in 2013 with a Bel-Air Pack that included an Air Jordan 5, Jordan Six Rings, Air Jordan 1, and Jordan CP3.VII.
Five years following the 2013 “Bel-Air” Air Jordan 5, Jordan Brand brought back the “Grape” Air Jordan 5 with NIKE AIR branding on the back for the first time since its 1990 debut but created a laceless version to give a nod to the way the Fresh Prince would frequently wear his pair on the show.Will Smith wearing “Grape” Air Jordan 5 without laces (1990) & Laceless Air Jordan 5 “Grape” (2018)
A year later, Jordan Brand surprised Will Smith with a gold version of the Grapes for his 50th birthday that was said to be limited to just 23 pairs and only given to closest friends and family.Air Jordan 5 “Gold Grape” for Will Smith

The Air Jordan 5 Bel-Air White does not have a firm release date or official images at this time. However, a Summer 2020 release date is reported.
