Will Smith’s Golden Air Jordan 5 PE Comes into Clearer View

Jul 11, 2019 | Ian Stonebrook |



Before Will Smith was known as Jaden and Willow’s dad, he was best known by another title.

The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.

Starring on primetime as a Philly transplant that made it big in Cali way before anyone knew what a Kobe was, Will was cracking jokes on NBC every week in a fresh pair of Jordans. It was often the Air Jordan 5.

As seen above, sometimes it was two styles of AJ5s at the same time.

Mismatching aside, Will was best known for rocking the Jordan 5s in the “Grape” colorway and keeping it G by doing so with no laces.

In 2018, Jordan Brand honored His Freshness with the “Fresh Prince” Air Jordan 5 that was essentially the OG “Grapes” crafted with no laces.

While the world got those, Will and 22 of his famous friends got the uber-limited friends and family pair that was graced in gold.

Just exactly how do those look in detail? See our best view yet in the gallery below.
