Will Smith, Adidas unveil Fresh Prince of Bel-Air inspired shoes
Philly fans have been treated well in the shoe industry in the last few weeks. From Phillies-inspired sneakers to Wawa Air Maxes, and now three shoes based on Will Smith’s hit show, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.
Recently Will Smith and Adidas unveiled three shoes whose designs are based on Will Smith’s Bel-Air Academy uniform. The first shoe has a more simplistic design while the second goes all out with the pattern of Smith’s suit in the show. The school’s logos are displayed over the laces and the tongue of the shoe and look incredible. Differing from the first two designs, the third shoe is black and yellow based off the Bel-Air basketball team’s uniforms.
The catch? The shoes are Donovan Mitchell’s signature, D.O.N Issue 3s. Why Will Smith couldn’t team up with anyone else? I don’t know. Smith is a part-owner of the Philadelphia 76ers; Damian Lillard has a signature shoe with Adidas, perfect marketing/recruitment opportunity right there.
Overall the two simplistic designs are alight but the second shoe with the heavy patterns are pretty sick. Compared to the other Philly shoes I’d rank them below the Phillies Question Lows but ahead of the Wawa sneakers. If you want to purchase your own pair, the shoes are on sale for $120 on the Adidas website.
