Spike Lee hasn’t had much of a problem expressing his personal style and taste through his films and fashion.

What unfolded as an idea by Nike’s long-time ad-agency compatriots Wieden & Kennedy ended up becoming one of the most iconic ad campaigns in history and set the ‘Air Jordan’ off to new heights. Spike speaks candidly about the terms and process of this partnership in the video below, so take a look and absorb some of this great info from one of the most influential figures in all-time sneaker history!

Spike Lee was one of the big names involved in 106 & Park’s tapings last week, and the man behind not one but two Air Jordan models certainly came through with some special editions to wow the crowd. He took the center podium alongside Rocsi and A$AP Rocky wearing a pair of Jordan Spiz’ikes in an unreleased Green/Orange/Black colorway that Spiz’ike fans can only hope for a release, as this particular combination of colors isn’t easily composed on Nike iD. With the ‘Gym Red’ still on the way, we can at least rest assured that the Spiz’ike is still going strong, so if you’re hoping for a release, check out the additional images below and Sneaker News will keep you updated.

Although he promised us that he would wear them for Game 4, Spike Lee could not resist his own temptation and wore his Knicks Foamposite PE for Game 3 – the first game of the series to be held at Madison Square Garden. Unfortunately for Spike and Knicks fans worldwide, the New York Knicks could not seize the Home Court opportunity and fell deeper in the loss column, facing a possible sweep at the hands of the Miami Heat as we near Game 4 this Sunday. We’ve got some shots of Spike Lee wearing his Foamposite PEs courtside below, so take a look and hopefully the Knicks’ fortunes would be a bit better come Game 4. Photos: espn

Yep. Spike Lee has his own Foamposites now. Here’s a look at a pair of Knicks-colored Air Foamposite Ones with Spike Lee’s icnoic logos stamped on the heel; it features the punchy orange Foamposite upper matched with Royal Blue on the inner bootie and the lace-placket, bound together with a tranlucent outsole. Spike’s allegiance may be with the Air Jordan, but he’s been spotted many times courtside rockin’ Nikes, and you can see these for yourself as he “scheduled” himself to wear these for Game 4 of the Knicks/Heat series. Will these be enough to distract LeBron and Wade? Remember, Sneaker News showed you a sick Air Foamposite One ‘Knicks’ customs, but these appear to be true issues from Nike to Spike!

Jeremy Lin x Mars Blackmon ‘BALLIN’ T-Shirt By The Forest Lab

February 27th, 2012 by | 16 comments

mars blackmon jeremy lin 1 Jeremy Lin x Mars Blackmon BALLIN T Shirt By The Forest Lab

Going from 12th man on the bench to superstar point guard in one of the most celebrated sports arena in the world is one thing, but to be the toast of the town in the year’s most star-studded basketball event is on a completely different level. Jeremy says he still has a hard time letting everything sink in, but we wonder how he handled being one of the brightest spotlights of the NBA All-Star Weekend. One of Lin’s proudest supporters is none other than Knicks fanatic Spike Lee, who was spotted during the All-Star Weekend wearing one of the funniest t-shirts we’ve seen; Jeremy Lin as Mars Blackmon on Spike Lee. Mars, as we know, is a fictional persona forged by Spike Lee during the Air Jordan advertisements in the early 90′s, but even Mars will admit that Lin’s success and meteoris rise goes beyond ‘the shoes’. If Linsanity has taken you over, hit up The Forest Lab to cope your own shirt! via FRESHNESS/jose3030
