If you grew up in the 90s, then there's a big chance you know who the Fresh Prince is. An iconic character, played by the legendary Will Smith, took us on a journey in Beverly Hills that consisted of lots of laughs, loud fashion, and fly sneakers. Some may say that the Fresh Prince sitcom etched the Air Jordan V silhouette into sneaker history. Hailing from West Philadelphia, Will's character was known for his sneaker style and the past is back for this MJ Monday. Some of us remember dressing up with crazy outfits rockin' our AJ5s with the same bold personality as Will did. He created his own lane that has connected a story to a very special shoe.

The Jumpman is paying tribute to an old classic with a retro of the white/grape Air Jordan V, but there's a twist. This time the Air Jordan V is going laceless as a tribute to how Will rocked his kicks. The clean white upper is accented with grape and teal details and to add excitement - classic Nike Air branding on the heel. The sockliner pays homage to Will's bright choice of apparel while 'West Philadelphia' sits below the tongue.

The Fresh Prince's style has always been a celebrated piece of 90s pop culture. The celebration doesn't stop as these special Air Jordan Vs release on Will Smith's birthday tomorrow, 9/25. Get ready to SHOP THE SNEAKS below on release day for $190 USD (on the SNKRS App). If you're a fan of the original 'Grape' colorway, we want to know your thoughts about these. Sound off!
