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’.
