Amidst all of the Jordan models that look to reincorporate elements from the most famed Jordan sneakers, the Air Jordan Spiz'ike
has managed to stay interesting. This particular Air Jordan Spiz'ike owns a few different details from the previous pairs we have seen. This retro basketball shoe possesses a predominately black suede base similar to the Air Jordan 6 Retro Black/Red. Another interesting design can be seen on the inner lining which possesses the infamous line, "High-flying, death-defying 360 slam dunk" from the famed Mars Blackmon commercials that features Spike Lee as the character that made his debut in She's Gotta Have it. The usual side netting that came from the Air Jordan 5 was replaced with the mesh from the Air Jordan 4. Also, the "Spike" print that hit the toe cap and back of the sneaker has been replaced with a more familiar elephant print. To finish off the cosmetic transformation, Jordan Brand speckled part of the midsole and the "wings", slight blue accents as well to compliment the tongue. Overall, this clean model pays homage to the most famed of Air Jordan's without overdoing it.
