The Cole Haan Lunargrand seems to be a favorite of Spike Lee’s, as he’s been spotted several times wearing the Lunar-ed out wingtips, saddles, and chukkas from time to time. It looks like he wanted to add some special flavor, so Revive Customs rose to the occasion and reworked a fragment design x Cole Haan Lunargrand Saddle in “Knicks” style, with orange soles, a royal blue upper with jersey material holes, and brown leather uppers. This special Birthday edition for Spike Lee is quite the follow-up to Revive’s amazing “1928″ custom editions that we showed you not long ago, and when seeing them on Spike’s feet when he was sitting courtside during Carmelo’s half-dollar against the Heat earlier this week, they look even better! We hope this only marks the beginning of a string of Cole Haan customs, so check out the exclusive photos of the shoes and Spike below and let us know what you think.

Today’s official unveiling of the Air Jordan XX8 was a top secret event by all accounts, with industry folks tight lipped about what exactly the sneaker media should expect going into their exclusive set up in midtown Manhattan today. As folks from the blogosphere filtered into the dimly lit room, things became more and more apparent. Jordan Brand president Larry Miller kicked things off, bringing out the one and only Spike Lee to get things started, with Carmelo Anthony eventually taking to the stage as well to talk the game of hoops with Mars Blackmon himself.
