In 2006, Jordan Brand released its most celebrated non-Air sneaker model called the “Spiz’ike” – a tribute to Spike Lee, his film production company 40 Acres and a Mule, and his role as the memorable and irreplaceable Mars Blackmon. The Spiz’ike, which pulls in key elements from the five Air Jordans that Lee helped immortalize, is perhaps the best “hybrid” sneaker design in the Nike/Jordan history, and there’s no denying that this tribute model to Spike is as revered as the legacy models are.
Since its release in 2006, the Spiz’ike has seen a vast number of releases as well as an introduction to NIKEiD, making the number of colorways truly endless. With the first colorway returning this Saturday, we went back and selected the ten best, starting from the original to one that went all the way to the White House. Check out our compilation of ten awesome Spiz’ike releases and let us know what pairs you have in your collection or if you feel that another pair deserves to be in our batch.

Every so-called "The Best" or "The Top Whatever Number" list will receive backlash from the public...with that being said I'm part of that public and here's my backlash...."Where's the "Do The Right Thing" editions!?
I had them all except the ones coming out this weekend and the black/gum bottoms...the woman's black/ice/pink should be there and infrared...the university blue were a rare one too, infrared was quality too
Cool grey color way was one of the best ones to be done in this shoe. Shows how poorly these lists are put together.
