President Barack Obama is currently in Harlem, NY for a Big Apple visit where NYC-native Spike Lee presented the leader of the free world with the custom shoebox containing the Jordan Spiz’ike. It features the presidential seal carved into a rich brown wood box, containing the Jordan Spiz’ike ‘Bordeaux’ (a February 2012 release). With his roots in Chicago, the president is certainly a Jordan fan, so it’ll only be a matter of time before Barack rocks these in one of his well-publicized White House pick-up games. Let us know if you think if this package is worthy of the President of the USA and stick with Sneaker News for more info and updates.

Spizikes are garbage. These were a scheduled release, and not made special for the prez, other than the box being custom made in this case...if you gonna present something to a president, it better be one of a kind both box and shoe...there is nothing special about this shoe..its almost an insult to give this shit to the president. I would be pissed if he gave that shit to me, cuz like many people have already said, there are so many other timeless classics to choose from..why pick one of the shittiest jordans ever made?!?! Spizikes are like the motherfuckin frankenstein kicks...parts from different places, assembled half ass, and ugly as fuck..just simply awful...but I guess the shoe matches the president and he creator...LMAO..
You kiss kill me! Stop beating with the concords lol I do think these spizikes ate ugly he should have gave him the white/red /blue joints for all that or even the cement iv.
Bordeaux Spiz'ikes? For the President?!?! Of the United States?!?!?! Damn, give him some Bred 1's if you wanted something classic/timeless. Some "True Blues" if you wanted something patriotic. Some "Chicago" 10's if you wanted something Chicago-y. But Bordeaux Spiz'ikes?!?!?! C'mon, son...
i think im more comfortable with Bieber wearing Jordans than Barack, but Barack does need some new kicks, all the pics ive seen of him balling he's wearing the same pair of white/black huarache 2k8's
It should've been the chicago 10s (saturday baby). Those rep chi town as well as any. I know its spike with the spizikes, but i dont feel these. Imagine Bam in the oval office rocking chi 10s lol
This is Hard fam, Copping mines the 4th. Im glad no one is worried about these less hypebeast to annoy me while waiting in line. A smooth in and out like a smooth pussy. Thanks HypeBeast!! Get yo gear up!... PS check my out...DJ YD at SoundCloud/ WaterTowerGang and TheShoeGame/ WaterTowerGang!!
I still do not understand why these spizikes are bordeaux. It has no color blocking resemblance whatsoever.
He will need those shoes, since he will be run out of town in November! He can go back to Chicago and play as many pick up games as he wants.
The Package is worth, but the shoe is not. They should've gave him something ICONIC like the Concords or something. He could've worn those with his tuxedos too. Those Ugly "Bordeaux" Spizikes look like a three year-old child should be rocking them.
or maybe even some Concords i mean like you really think obamas gonna be rocking those anytime soon?
maybe im jjust not so well-traveled, but are there rough pussys out there youve come across? on the plus side i dont think youll have to worry about too many hypebeasts annoying you in the "line", or the sidewalk where the line would be i mean
if u have style u can rock anything if u choose too! but you are right a pair of 11's would have been way cooler !
My thoughts exactly...of all the J's or spizikes for that matter they could've gave him, they give him these SMH at spike and JB for lettin this happen
I understand where your coming from president. Thank you, and when I become president of the world, i'll make sure you dont go through any trouble.
I think your the best rapper to step foot in this game. As america watched tupac die, we shall see the same with you. Im glad to have served a term where the best rapper was just as rich, if not richer!
