Spike Lee was out of uniform (but not of character) during last night’s Knicks/Bulls match-up as he donned an outfit supporting a different NY team – the New York Giants. To match his New York Giants beanie and Lawrence Taylor jersey, Spike Lee wore the Nike Air Foamposite One ‘Metallic Red’ while cheering on the Knicks, who put up a valiant effort against Derrick Rose and the Chicago Bulls. Luckily for him, there are no Home games scheduled for Superbowl Sunday, so his attendance streak won’t be broken! Check out one of the most sneaker-crazed celebs in Hollywood (by way of Brooklyn) after the jump and let us know what you think.

spike lee barack obama spizikes Barack Obama Receives Jordan Spizikes From Spike Lee

If Barack Obama wins another term of presidency, now you’ll have to ask yourself: “Is it the shoes?”. Just yesterday Sneaker News showed you the Jordan Spiz’ike Custom Box made just for President Obama, and later that evening, Mr. Obama was presented with the special gift from Spike Lee himself. President Obama is a Chicago native and is a huge Chicago Bulls and Air Jordan fan, but do you think Barack will keep these on ice, or will he un-DS them for a pick-up game? If you missed out on last night’s post on the custom presidential-grade box, check it out below and let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.

jordan spizike pack for barack obama 1 Jordan Spizike Pack For Barack Obama

President Barack Obama is currently in Harlem, NY for a Big Apple visit where NYC-native Spike Lee presented the leader of the free world with the custom shoebox containing the Jordan Spiz’ike. It features the presidential seal carved into a rich brown wood box, containing the Jordan Spiz’ike ‘Bordeaux’ (a February 2012 release). With his roots in Chicago, the president is certainly a Jordan fan, so it’ll only be a matter of time before Barack rocks these in one of his well-publicized White House pick-up games.

Jordan Son Of Mars – White – Black – Varsity Purple

January 16th, 2012 by | 60 comments

jordan son of mars wht prp 6 Jordan Son Of Mars   White   Black   Varsity Purple

The Son Of Mars has stirred up some interesting debate once that ‘Olympic’ colorway surfaced late last week, but the understated White/Black/Purple that we showed you earlier seemed to have yielded more positive results. Meshing several Air Jordans into one model is easy to do; doing it seamlessly is exceedingly difficult. Among all the Air Jordan hybrids to have released in the past – the Spiz’ike, Six Rings, Rare Air, Dub Zero, 6-17-23 – only the first of that bunch experienced wide success, so maybe the Spike Lee tie-in will help the Son Of Mars when it releases later this year. This new set of detailed shots of the White/Black/Purple colorway shows that the inclusion of the Air Jordan XX strap gives it a – dare we say – Yeezy-like atmosphere; a closer look at said strap reveals some updated Spike Lee x Michael Jordan imagery, like ‘Mars Blackmon’, ‘Is It The Shoes?’, and ‘Yo Yo Yo’. Continue reading for another look at the Jordan Son Of Mars in this understated colorway, and let us know if you think the Son Of Mars is a potential hit. via MarqueeSole.

Jordan Spiz’ike ‘Knicks Collectors Box Edition’ – Available on eBay

December 24th, 2011 by | 7 comments

spizike blue signed 1 of 8 1 Jordan Spizike Knicks Collectors Box Edition   Available on eBay

If it ever made sense for a non-basketball player to get a PE colorway, than Spike Lee would have to be the dude in question. His courtside dedication to the New York Knicks has been unmatched through the years, and since he already has a Jordan Brand hybrid model named after him in the form of the Jordan Spiz’ike, the homage just makes sense. The alternating blue and orange colorways were made extra special by an NYC scavenger hunt where pairs were tucked in hidden locales in the city, each one signed by Spike himself and accompanied by the super luxe wooden boxes, only eight of which were produced. Fortunately, at least one of the lucky winners from said scavenger hunt is parting with their pair, with this size 8.5 available now on your favorite auction site. Hit the jump for the full images and scoop this collectors item up from ace1185 on eBay.

spike lee do the right thing sneakers 1 Complexs Complete Sneaker Guide To Spike Lees Do The Right Thing

Spike Lee seems to leave a profound mark in whatever realm he steps foot on. Already considered to be one of the iconic film directors of our generation and noted sneakerheads of the sub-culture, Spike Lee’s interests have crossed over from time to time – most notably in the 1989 film ‘Do The Right Thing’. Nikes and Air Jordans are easily spotted throughout the entire movie, which is a rather accurate depiction of the popularity of sneakers in the inner city; kicks like the Air Jordan IV, Nike Air Trainer III, and Nike Air Force II are just some of what can be seen during many of the memorable scenes. Even more recently, Jordan Brand has released a few select Air Jordan Retros in inspired colorways, like the Air Jordan 1 and Air Jordan III. We’ve got a quick sampling of Complex’s latest list below, so take a look and head to Complex for the full feature.
