Giving back to the sneaker-loving community, Nike has gone and donated a quartet of Jordan Spiz’ike iD pairs to a heart-broken family. After the passing of her husband Hondo Morales, widow Jimica Perea was saddened even further to find his car broken into one night, and the Air Jordans he’d left behind stolen. Helping her repair what she calls his legacy for his children, Nike iD reached out to Perea and the family, letting each of the four surviving children design their own version of the Jordan Spiz’ike iD. Continue reading to watch the heart warming video and join us in a round of applause for Nike’s move on this one.

Who cares if he rides around with 15 pairs of kicks in his car. It is his right to ride around with 100 pairs if he wants to. That doesn't give these low life douche bags to steal from a dead man! RIP HM, and let's not forget the real victims in all of this!!! Stop blaming NIKE, STOP blaming Spike Lee, and let's hold these crooks accountable for killing and stealing and robbing.

Uh, why did they leave all those shoes in the car in the first place?  No offense, but if he bought those at retail, we're talking about at least $1000 if it's mixed sizes (for his kids/etc), and over $2250 if they were for him.  If they're deadstock, they could be worth far more.  Looks like an SUV too, which in terms of the trunk and shoes is like walking around with a see-through briefcase filled with money.  And as with many thefts, it's probably someone who was at least aware of the guy.  Stealing from a dead man, now that's fucked up.  Well RIP dude, I hope you left more to your wife than just some jordans and 4 kids.

Hilariously sad part about all this?  Nike still made tons off the guy, even with these free pairs they gave his family.  Drop in the bucket for some prime PR, which is always an attempt at justifying what they're doing by marketing to people in the lowest income brackets.  Reminds me of how I resent Spike Lee for his association with JB.  Guy tries to act like some sort of MLK Jr with his movies, but then advertises over priced shoes that are targeted at some of the most marginalized percentage of the US population?  Get outta here.  Why don't you just walk down to the ghetto and slap them with your money stacks yourself?

If I die before my wife, I wonder if she'll wear a T-shirt with my picture on it. Now that's love.

@badgerbiscuits His legacy was he was a father! Shithead. and why does he have to be ghetto? Because he is a minority? Bottom line, he left behind 4 children and a wife.

@rnrwithdave what the fuck are you talking about? they give 1 person a couple shoes for promotion and then its acceptable to tax the shit out of people... if you want to donate to a good cause, contact the humane society or red cross

@Snpdo @rnrwithdave First off dip shit, learn how to read and RETAIN what you read. Then after that, you analyze what you have read. Then once you do that, what was said should be loud and clear. Evidently your ignorant ass doesnt have a job or career in anything important or dealing with money! Keep flipping burgers, making sure the fries dont burn and taking out the trash. #dumbfuck

@rnrwithdave  I am 25 and I go to college buddy, I'm not trying to bust my ass working minimum wage just to get a 10,000 dollar house in the ghetto.  And in regards to camping, I don't need to camp out buddy, everything releases online and I got my bot situation on point and shit who hasn't camped for anyway "rares" havin mfer...  and quit searchin guy you keep doin that because your argument is bullshit.  I never said some hoes give a shit about some shoes so quit makin shit up.  Let me reiterate, I'm younger, buy all my own shit(so before you go on sayin that bullshit), and I got my life situation on point so quit makin up excuses about why your shoe situation is heavily depleted.  This is a shoe website, keep it in context loser...

@clams @rnrwithdave @Snpdo LOL Depends how you look at it. But its just a young dude yapping about anything because he's frustrated them dollars are tight and he has to carefully choose which release he's getting. LOL "This week or wait 2 weeks? I can get some socks if I wait, but these Jordans everybody on the bus stops will have" LOL Get out of here with that @snpdo Grow up, broaden your horizons and have a heart. How would you want to be remembered if your time expired and your love ones were hurt?
