Who knew the goofy kid from Philly who started as a rapper and was later transplanted to Bel-Air, would be a blockbuster movie-star commanding eight-figure salaries? We recently showed you some of Will Smith’s greatest sneaker moments as, uh, Will Smith in The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, but since the show ended in 1996, Smith has moved forward and upward in his career, playing the trigger-happy Mike Lowery in the ‘Bad Boys’ franchise (a third would be swell, wouldn’t it), the suave Alex Hitchens in ‘Hitch’, and Muhammad Ali in ‘Ali’, which garnered him his first of two Oscar nominations. Will Smith – the person and the character – will always be remembered in the sneaker game for rocking some sweet Nikes and Air Jordans during his reign as Prince, but he’s still a Nike guy at heart, as he was recently spotted with the Nike Zoom Huarache TR Low Joe Mauer PE while celebrating Mark Anthony’s birthday. Check out the the Fresh Prince and his kicks below and let us know what you think!
