If Barack Obama wins another term of presidency, now you’ll have to ask yourself: “Is it the shoes?”. Just yesterday Sneaker News showed you the Jordan Spiz’ike Custom Box made just for President Obama, and later that evening, Mr. Obama was presented with the special gift from Spike Lee himself. President Obama is a Chicago native and is a huge Chicago Bulls and Air Jordan fan, but do you think Barack will keep these on ice, or will he un-DS them for a pick-up game? If you missed out on last night’s post on the custom presidential-grade box, check it out below and let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.

the only reason spike gave the President that colorway is because they tryna get rid of pairs..the colorway is so bad that they tryna promote it while getting rid of it at the same time.i guarantee you someone who doesnt know about kicks will see this and buy them just because the President has them smh

They should have gave him a pair of DS 2000 Concords.... not a shoe that looks like it was made for the jungle jim playground.

Obama will probably put these away, and keep them as a reminder of his Presidency when he goes back to Chicago. He doesn't seem like the kind of guy to rock shoes that are this outlandish. It's a nice trophy, and it's the thought behind the shoe that counts. But again, he's pushing 50, and a President rocking these shoes would just look silly.

This is an insult to Michael Jordan's legacy. No leader of a fascist military empire should wear Jordans.

Great box, but the president shouldn't get GRs. He should have some 1 of 1 joints.

he will try them on and actually play in them, then ice them after he finds out how uncomfortable they are, and how bad his feet feel afterward...
