A hot topic on Sneaker News this week was the Air Jordan Spiz’ike in the ‘Bordeaux’ colorway. Taking a direct inspiration from the original Air Jordan VII colorway of the same name, these upcoming Spiz’ikes were initially confirmed by Sneaker News when we did an advanced preview of the Jordan Brand Spring 2012 collection. However, the Jordan Spiz’ike ‘Bordeaux’ has been under a fire set by the sneaker community primarily for its non-resemblance to the actual Air Jordan VII ‘Bordeaux’. What makes the OGs and these Spiz’ikes so different is that the multi-colored color-blocking surrounds the entire shoe of the latter, but is concentrated on the tongue on the former. Maybe that’s what makes the Bordeaux VII such an incredible shoe, as it perfects the ‘controlled’ color-blocking seen on the earliest Air Jordan colorways. In any case, the Bordeaux Spiz’ikes have popped up early for purchase, so take a look at these new images and snag one months in advance by visiting the auction by el-store on eBay.

Sick shoes like the concept jus wish I couldve made a move on one of the knicks release o well these jus might do
these look just as crazy as the db4 but they are still spizikes... atleast the 4s are 4s. i will never understand why the spizike is as succeful as it is.
I like them they hard nice shoes but for 175 I just can't get pass the cracking to easy that happen to my last spizike and I barely worn them maybe twice 3 the max
if the white leather was grey and the red was bordeaux i could see that being the name. they don't look bad but rainbow is just not me. reminds me of them 6's that was colorful like that. forgive me sneakerheads for not know the name of them.
If you pay $340 for these, you are a fool. Matter of fact, if you pay $175 for these, you are a fool.
Who cares about bordeaux, all yall bamas must be from new england or ohio or sumptin, these shoes r fire , yall need to be on one of those unmanly commercials for some of the girlyist stuff yall say. Probably be wearing bally boots or some 310's or sumthin (lol). Don't know what a good shoe is if yall seen 1. DMV been wearing J's all these Foams, when they were just called a shoe, didn't have 2 make up a name back in the day 2 sell a shoe. Now look at off brand shoe wearer's, concerned about( its the wrong name for a shoe color. Sounds crazy !!!
I don't care what people say. These joints are viscious. It's a given that there is a lot of heat dropping next year, and that $175 hurts your pockets, but I'm Collin. And if they just had some light blue, yellow, or maybe even white laces, I bet 90% of you all wouldn't be sayin how they're ugly. Im gonna cop for sure.... sALuTe
Good for you but honestly, these are terrible. I can't even stand just looking at the things, let alone put them on my feet.
