JORDAN SON OF MARS The Jordan Son of Mars is a hybrid design from Jordan Brand in the same vein as the Jordan Spiz’ike. The name references Spike Lee’s “Mars Blackmon” character frequently featured in Air Jordan ad spots, with the sneaker itself grabbing design elements from all of the Air Jordan models Spike played a part in promoting: the Air Jordan III, IV, V, VI, and XX.

Breaking Down The Jordan Son Of Mars

When something is underscored as a ‘Spike Lee joint’, it’d be safe to expect something out-of-the-ordinary in the level of envelope-pushing themes and ideas. It all started with the Spiz’ike in 2006, when Jordan Brand unveiled its multi-hybrid creation inspired by the original Air Jordans that Spike was cast in the supporting role, and even six years after the release, the Spiz’ike continues its esteem as the best Air Jordan hybrid ever created. The Jordan Son Of Mars is like a re-constituted Spiz’ike, using the same Air Jordan III, IV, V, and VI detailing with the Air Jordan XX mid-foot strap to hold everything down into place, and the ‘pop-art’ colorway that just dropped served as the perfect barometer of how successful the unofficial Spiz’ike Part II will be. JordansDaily had a great feature breaking down the design of the Jordan Son Of Mars, making the appropriate connections with each of the models, so check out the images below and get your Son of Mars now on eBay.

Jordan Son of Mars ‘Pop Art’ – Arriving @ Retailers

March 1st, 2012 by | 29 comments

Though its exact inspiration(s) have yet to be specified, the Jordan Son of Mars pictured above manages to reflect its ‘Pop Art’ theme by applying playful shades of the primary colors.  This look is vaguely reminiscent of corporate art thanks to all the major companies that use similar palettes in their logos, but the international concern that’s the most obvious fit would be the Olympic Games and its five-ringed flag.  Consider this a gradual lead-in before Jordan Brand gets serious around the time of the London Olympiad this summer, and get ready for the release at select retailers like West on Saturday, March 3rd.

No, we’re not talking about Jeremy Lin, we’re talking about the Son Of Mars sneakerthe next multi-Air Jordan hybrid that is set to debut in 2012. The first such release is this colorful rendition inspired by 1950′s pop art, previously dubbed the ‘Olympic’. Jordan Brand states that the Son Of Mars “follows in the footsteps of the Spiz’ike”, and like many offspring do, the Son Of Mars can only hope to achieve the same success its father had. The Jordan Son Of Mars ‘Pop-Art’ releases this Saturday, March 3rd, and Jordan Brand retailers, so let us know if you plan on copping the Spiz’ike Jr. when it becomes available.

Can you believe it’s only been seven years since Jordan Brand debuted the Dub Zero?! We go through so much new heat these days that when you zoom out to 50,000 feet and examine the territory covered in less than a decade, it’s nothing less than mindblowing. From the very first JB hybrid in 2005 arose the Spiz’ike in ’06, followed in subsequent years by several other ‘greatest hits’ hybrids. The latest chapter in this remixed Air Jordan Legacy is directly tied to both the Spizikes and the Dub Zeros. Jordan’s Son of Mars offers the laser etching introduced during the AJXX/Dub Zero product cycle while keeping with the early ’90s silhouette that we see on the earlier Spike Lee-referencing hybrid. This first release is something like Son of Mars’ take on the Spizike’s ‘Grape’ rendition, itself an Aquatone hit or two away from the beloved Air Jordan VIII it sampled. This is a crisp look for spring, and one that you can find available from select JB retailers like Sole-Up on eBay.

Drawing its inspiration from a concentrated string of Air Jordan legacy models for the most part, the Jordan Son Of Mars mixes up elements from versions III through VI, throwing in the lasered up midfoot strap from the XX on top of it all. The result is a bit more focused than the typical blender approach for hybrid models, although we’ve got to admit it’s a bit strange that neither of the two colorways previewed so far pick up a particularly typical Jordan Brand colorway. The purple version shown here comes in closest to the beloved ‘Grape’ look from the Air Jordan V, with the sole setup of that same shoe doing a good amount of the heavy lifting in terms of color.

Jordan Son of Mars ‘Olympic’ – New Images

February 13th, 2012 by | 39 comments

The ‘Olympic’ designation within the Air Jordan repertoire isn’t always a clear one. Just take a look at the Air Jordan ‘Olympic Pack 2012′ and compare them to this colorway of the Jordan Son of Mars and you’ll realize how little overlap there is. Of course in this specific instance the moniker is derived from application of the colors from the 5 Olympic Rings, a range whose tones pop up on the various accents of this new hybrid for 2012. The result is something pretty reminiscent of the recent ‘Bordeaux’ Spiz’ike, with the Frankenstein design standing out even more thanks to the less than subtle colorblocking. Follow us after the jump to see what we mean, and let us know in the comments if you’re on board with the Jordan Son of Mars or not. via HC
