Maybe because I’m a sucker for gray but these Fresh Bel Air versions of the classic Air Jordan Vs have been catching my eye. I believe one of the reasons the Vs were picked as its a shoe you seen Will Smith rock countless times on the show. So why not show some love and create a shoe dedicated to that 90s era of bright and loud colors.
The upper is of a cool grey color, while the midsole is a majority of purple with some pink,blue and green neon coloring thrown in for good measure. The iconic “23” is also in neon green while the inner sole has a splash of various colors. While the kicks are just about the same, there are some color swaps on the Jordan symbol on the tongue and back heel, on the midsole, and the #23.
Anyone in the market or picking these up or just going to give them a pass? I know they are on my radar and as usual, people will say they wont want them and the hypebeast sneaker machine will try and gobble them up. I hope its not the case with these, but time will tell.
Air Jordan 5 Retro “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” is set to drop in October 2013.
