The King of Instagram is doing it big.
Will Smith has taken to Instagram to reveal just how big he’s celebrating his 50th birthday later this month. Smith unboxed an unreleased pair of Air Jordan 5 “Fresh Prince” kicks and told his 21 million Instagram followers how they can win a special limited edition pair of the NRG “Friends & Family” edition of the sneakers.
Through his first unboxing, you can tell the difference between the Air Jordan 5 “Grape” color way we’ve seen before and the Fresh Prince edition. Its lace holes have been sealed shut with the addition of “West Philadelphia” subtly found on the tongue above its netting. The insole also pays homage to the hit show with pink and green stripes and Air Jordan done in the shows retro typeface. The NRG “Friends & Family” edition swaps out the white color way for gold with black lacing.
If you want the Air Jordan 5 “Fresh Prince,” the sneaker will be available on September 25th (that’s Will’s birthday) at select Jordan Brand retailers. If you want the gold edition, well, the Fresh Prince has teamed up with Nike to give away 23 pairs.
