Excerpt From COMPLEX Magazine: A Complete Guide To The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air's Sneakers
Check out this EXCERPT of COMPLEX MAGAZINE's Guide of all sneakers that Will Smith (FRESH PRINCE) wore throughout the tenure of the show. Very interesting, engaging, nostalgic article:
Episode: #1 'The Fresh Prince Project', #2 'Bang The Drum, Ashley', #17 'The Ethnic Tip', #23 '72 Hours', & #37 'Something for Nothing'
Year (of Sneaker): 1990
From the very first moment Will pops up in the intro of the show, he dons a pair of black Vs. Throughout the first season it was obvious that William Smith/Williard Smith (his name on the show/real life) is a huge fan of Js including the nearly murdered-out numero cincos.
Nike Quantum Force
Episode: #6 'Mistaken Identity', #11 'Courting Disaster', #14 'Day Damn One', #18 'Young and the Restless', #25 'Working it Out', & #99 'The Philadelphia Story'
Year (of Sneaker): 1990
Stand out red joints like that? The Quantum Forces were a staple in the first season — seeing Will get arrested for racial issues, take over as captain of Bel-Air's basketball squad, scare the hell out of his little cousin Ashley, and catch the eye of Queen Latifah.
Episode: #56 'Here Comes The Judge' & #60 'A Funny Thing Happened On The Way Home From The Forum'
Year (of Sneaker): 1992
In '92 Nike switched up the Flight logo and started dropping the top on its kicks and going with mid releases more and more. A man of times, Will started donning the mids more versus the chunky high-tops which were a staple in his footwear collection throughout the first two season.
