A hot topic on Sneaker News this week was the Air Jordan Spiz’ike in the ‘Bordeaux’ colorway. Taking a direct inspiration from the original Air Jordan VII colorway of the same name, these upcoming Spiz’ikes were initially confirmed by Sneaker News when we did an advanced preview of the Jordan Brand Spring 2012 collection. However, the Jordan Spiz’ike ‘Bordeaux’ has been under a fire set by the sneaker community primarily for its non-resemblance to the actual Air Jordan VII ‘Bordeaux’. What makes the OGs and these Spiz’ikes so different is that the multi-colored color-blocking surrounds the entire shoe of the latter, but is concentrated on the tongue on the former. Maybe that’s what makes the Bordeaux VII such an incredible shoe, as it perfects the ‘controlled’ color-blocking seen on the earliest Air Jordan colorways. In any case, the Bordeaux Spiz’ikes have popped up early for purchase, so take a look at these new images and snag one months in advance by visiting the auction by el-store on eBay.
