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.

Spike Lee played a major role in the earlier Air Jordan ad campaigns as well as promoting the relevance of the Air Jordan in pop culture.
