A Complete Guide to The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air’s Sneakers
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.
