Shuttlesworth on the back of his jersey on January 21st, has confirmed discussions with Spike regarding a sequel to the movie – so long as production, the cast, and the script live up to the bill. As you may already know, a major subplot of the film was the collection of sneakers spotted during the movie and the Air Jordan XIII that Jake Shuttlesworth (portrayed by Denzel Washington) purchased. Do you think sneakers will play a big role in this upcoming movie? If so, what Air Jordan shoe do you expect to rise to the occasion?

cole haan knicks revive spike 1 Cole Haan Lunargrand Knicks Playoffs for Spike Lee by Revive Customs

Spike Lee’s shoe-game has gone “grown” recently, much in part due to Revive Customs and his insane redone Lunargrands done just for the Brooklyn-born film director. This latest custom features a tonal orange upper with a classic Knicks blue Lunar midsole and the jersey mesh print on the upper for that sporty touch on this refined shoe. Finishing off the custom is the custom “SL” logo on the heel inspired by the original Cole Haan logo, the throwback Knicks logo on the right insole, and a pixelated version of the Mars Blackmon logo on the left insole. What’s better is that Spike wore these during Game 6, when the Knicks clinched their second-round playoff berth. We’ve got a high-res gallery below, so give it a look and let us know if you’d cop these Knicks-inspired Cole Haan Lunargrands if they ever dropped in store!

The Jordan Brand love runs in the family as Spike Lee’s son Jackson was given his own sneaker called the Jordan Son of Mars Low.

In addition to the “Tour Yellow” and tomorrow’s “Grape Ice”, Jackson gives us an advanced look at the “DTRT” colorway and a fourth version that appears to have “White/Cement” flavor.

jordan brand classic 2013 event recap Jordan Brand Classic 2013   Event Recap

Part of the equation Jordan Brand Classic 2013 is basketball, and the showcasing of young talent and future superstars. But another part of the equation, one just as crucial, is the goal of bringing together a mini-community of athletes and providing them with a once-in-a-lifetime experience crafted by the Jordan Brand. Leading up to the trio of games on Saturday, the kids bopped around NYC and discovered the heritage of the brand throughout the city, from a sit down event with Spike Lee and Sway out in Brooklyn to a trip to Gleason’s Gym for some boxing with Andre Ward.

Of course yet another aspect of the event is its star studded status, one that was particularly prevalent this year thanks to this year’s New York/Brooklyn locale. Countless athletes, rappers, and the like were spotted courtside (Amar’e Stoudemire, Carmelo Anthony, Victor Cruz, and Fabolous just to name a few). And then there was the Drake concert immediately following the final game which brought everybody out of their seats at the culmination of the evening. Continue reading to see what the Jordan Brand Classic kids were up to before the games went down, the celebrities that showed up, Drake’s explosive performance, and more in our Jordan Brand Classic 2013 event recap.

Nike Air Trainer 2 LE “Spike Lee” – Unreleased Sample

April 12th, 2013 by | 5 comments

nike air trainer 2 le spike lee unreleased sample 0 Nike Air Trainer 2 LE Spike Lee   Unreleased Sample

We’re rewinding a few years back (2009 to be exact) to the Nike Sportswear “Spike Lee” Pack that featured the Air Max 97, Big Nike High, and Blazer Mid…and almost the Air Trainer 2 LE. The Spike Lee Pack was tied together by the dope tongue label depicting Spike’s rectangular-framed glasses which was also used on the Air Trainer 2 LE, but for reasons unknown, the Trainer was never released in the Pack. The colorway is definitely much louder than the rest of the set, which is probably why we never really forget about ‘em. A rare chance to own this sample is up now, so refresh your memory and place your bids in on this true auction from mandmanda2445 on eBay.
