Spike Lee’s part in Nike’s history deserves more than one article to adequately explain, but — even now — it’s obvious to see that the revered film director has had a significant effect on not only Jordan Brand but the entire umbrella as a whole. Featured on screens big and small with Mars Blackmon as his proxy, Lee gave way to many a campaign, including the adverts for the Re-Fresh’d Air Raid 2 which effectively became the “Peace Raid” through promoted inclusivity. Now, years after, the “Live Together, Play Together” themes are making their way to new styles inclusive of this Air Force 1.
Mirrored in its colorway, the homage starts with a near full black coloring. White swooshes and midsoles accent on the side, while more colorful details come through in overt nod to the central inspiration. Key to the “mo’ colors, the mo’ better,” the pair layers on contrast yellow stitch to the vamp while the forefoot bears the multicolor insignia the Air Raid 2 employed during the titular run. Alongside, the Nike Air patch has been flipped to match that of the aforementioned as well as the loud retro print that dresses both the heel tab and insole.
Grab a detailed look at these here and expect a release to hit Nike.com hopefully in the coming months.
