The shoe must be! Are these famous words mean to you anything? Should. The notorious Mars Blackmon has often said this sentence by referring to the monumental results that a Michael Jordan epic can achieve. Mars Blackmon, aka Spike Lee, with Nike and Michael, joined the Air Jordans in the late 80's. Although the commercials were quite entertaining, the marketing of Air Jordans at that time was not really necessary. The popularity of the Jordanian shoe line has always been high.
Quickly forward to 2007. Michael and his shoes are reunited with Spike Lee. This time, an Air Jordan hybrid is created. Jordan Spizike shoes came from this reunion. Like the Jordan Hybrids, it was as hateful as the new shoe enthusiast. Most of the sneaker community thought this shoe would be bust. Initially, the "retro Frankenstein", Spizike, was named after Spike Lee, who announced that it would only be available on the I-95. The shoe was originally dropped in two colorway only. Despite the negative reaction of the traditional Jordan Retro sneaker community, the popularity of the shoes caused Jordan Brand to throw another 5 colors. It was obvious that a large group of Jordanheads actually liked hybrids.
As a Jordanian hybrid, Spizike consists of several different jordan retro styles. The Air Jordan 3, 4, 5, 6, 9 and 20 different design elements are used in the shoe composition.
Here's how it breaks down:
Jordan 3-Elephant printing, the sole and the soles.
Jordan 4-The Air Jordan "wings" logo is used.
Jordan 5 – The primary silhouette of the shoe is used.
Jordan 6-The shoe language and trinket system are used.
Jordan 9-The back cover was used.
Jordan 20-A laser printing graphics on the inner lining.
Some nice versions of Jordan Spizike will tell you about this upcoming holiday season. Both Orange and Blue, Spike Lee's New York Knicks, will be available in December. If you remember, Spike was detected on both colored courses on both sides of last season's NBA playoffs. And now you are in the same Spizike model and colorway as Lee was pounding last year at Madison Square Garden.
With Spike Lee PE releases released with an additional Spizike color page, it seems that this shoe will be back in the spotlight. Some people, as always, hate it. Others will be happy. There seems to be no hybrid of hybrids. They are Jekyll and Hyde of Jordan shoes basketball.
