“Now this is a story all about how my life got flipped-turned upside down…”
80’s babies consider The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air as one of the greatest sit-coms in the history of television, and rightfully so; a hilarious plot-line, a great ensemble of actors led by one of the biggest movie-stars in history, and the ‘Carlton Dance’ certainly justifies that title. During the show’s earlier years, Will Smith’s character of the same name showed off quite a distinct fashion style, sharply contrasting with the dapper country-club attire worn by the rest of the Banks family; his calling card was his daily outfit of high-top sneakers (mainly Air Jordans) and his reversed Bel-Air Academy blazer, which serves as the inspiration behind this Air Jordan X custom. The luxurious paisley-like print from the inner lining of Will’s jacket is used to decorate the insole, while the exterior uses wild African-inspired tribal art as well as colorful details from early-90’s hip-hop fashion. A gallery of images and videos detailing this sick custom is right ahead, so take a look and check out the full listing from crking61 on eBay.
nice concept. the insole and the midsole are sick. only thing i would've done diff is probably switch the midsole and the upper.
This the creator of these kicks.....I just wanna thank everybody for the feedback - &+ follow me on twitter @niftnif to ask questions or for updates
F****n sick. this is what customs are supposed to be. PURE, ORIGINAL IDEAS. makes me wanna watch the show again. again dope concept. keep it up.
These are pretty daring. I'm hurting for the Chicagos but dig the design concept. Very much in character, considering that Will was rocking J's on literally every other episode.
