It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia remains one of cable’s edgiest shows entering its seventh season this Thursday, but one show will always maintain its place in Brotherly Love lore thanks to the opening bars of one of the most unforgettable themes in TV history. The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air opened with a story all about how one young man’s life got flipped, turned upside down, and we’d like to take a minute, just sit right there, we’ll tell you how many dope kicks showed up on the air. Will Smith was depicted in a rotating throne rocking the ‘Black Metallic’ Air Jordan V that just saw a retro release this summer, and also happens to be the first in a list of forty-three sneakers in Complex’ latest compendium. The selections range from those to the Fire Red Vs and of course the ‘Grapes’ that many still to this day call the ‘Fresh Princes’, but there’s also a ton of other early ’90s standouts on display and you can see a smattering of the selections after the jump before you head over to Complex for the entire feature.

You're in point of fact a just right webmaster. The web site loading velocity is amazing. It sort of feels that you are doing any distinctive trick. Moreover, The contents are masterpiece. you have done a magnificent process on this matter!
Yeah I agree with both will and dewayne. I also agree with fly kicks in do the right thing. som other movies with fly kicks is in them can be "clockers" and He got game. If u seen these to movies u will agree. jesus had mad foams in he go game.
Fav scene is when Will tricked Carlton into thinking he killed Lisa and left her in the cabin and he went beserk and ran through every set lmfao!
Fresh Prince and Martin shows displayed the dopest kicks...I wish I had the OG Air Wacks that Martin had since he couldnt rock his OG AJX lol
Nice Article...but see if Jordan Brand wants to Retro sneakers and put out others such as non Retro'd sneakers that barelly sell...why not just either Re-Retro or Retro these older shoes atleast...like Laney 5's and such...you know some stuff people can really want to wear and not have to worry about if I wasted my money on them or whatever lol...but yeah there has been excellent releases in the past couple years and next year going to be as well which I can agree. Also I just dont want all these Jordans to go to the hypebeast and the people who dont appreciate them for their history, instead of trend from these wack mainstream radio rappers lol...look at snapbacks and throwback jerseys...they done already ruined that for everyone haha...as well other things. UGH!!! it is what it is you know...you just got to look ahead of them and know whats cool not just some trend though.
Fresh Prince(Will Smith), Martin Lawrence, and Marlon Waynes always rocked the best kicks on their shows.
columbia's always hot to me..if i am not mistaken i thought he rocked the penny1 at one point? oh well colum's were dope!
Yo the first pic of the second page looks like he has on a pair of "year of the rabits".... you gotta admit
Its not complete, he used to rock the Brett Farve's too, and yeah Jerry Seinfeld's kick game was on point
Fresh Prince fans know on of the greatest moments in the show's history can boiled down to one line: "...why don't he want me man?..."
2nd to last pic. looks like a blunt in his hand lol. But man, Will used to stay sneaked up. Best show ever IMO
Older sneaker heads cuz when the grapes frist dropped they wasn't as popular as they are now a days but after the fresh prince rocked ppl started going crazy from what I heard
one of my favorite shows for sure...and one of the best parts was checking to see what shoes he was wearing....but seinfeld is def my favorite show of all time...who cares whos white or black lol
one of the greatest tv shows ever. 10 times better than friends, seinfeld and all those other overrated white shows. Martin, fresh prince, cosby show...etc best shows ever. hats off to will for coppin all those OGs
Martin was on top of his game, fresh prince was more colorful so it may have seemed like he had more kicks.... Don't sleep on The Insane Martin Payne....
I can see what your saying...but for real I'd have to dis-agree on that hahaha...I knew exactlly what they looked like when I see them...but yeah he wore the best sneakers out of all celebs on TV I'd say...also "white men can't jump"...."do the right thing"..."little monsters"...I cant think of anymore at the moment but I know alot more shows/movies but yeah and plenty of other shows/ movies back then had some tight sneakers...you just got to keep your eyes peeled!!! lol
exactlly...people wait to see others wearing them then decide once it gets big then they say its cool or whatever...its wack!!! lol
word. I think the last picture with the grapes was the best fit (out of this group of pics). Man i miss this show. One of the greatest.
haha yeah...and damn good thing I came along this article... NOW I WANT TO GET THE BOX SETS OF ALL OF THE SEASONS!!! lol I wonder if he still has any of his sneakers from these days still? that would be tight to see him pull out them OG's now ha but too risky with the ageing and such :/
shows back then kill nowadays...like...In living color...the wayans...fresh prince of bel air...as well of movies...like..."white ment cant jump"..."do the right thing"...and so on...same with kid movies and shows like nicolodeon and such...plus MTV was actually cool back then instead of all this gay hype stuff like...Jersey Whore...and 16 and pregnant...and them other shows...lol its rediculous as FUUUUUUUUUUUUCK!
haha...agree...but idk if I could ever have pulled it off like he does though lol...he was the man back in the day.
I disagree... the cardinals first then the 95's second as far as the order of the cleanest shoe/ensemble combo is concerned.
