Air Jordan Spiz'ike
The Air Jordan Spiz'ike is the ultimate mash up. Jordan Brand fused the Air Jordan III, Air Jordan IV, Air Jordan V and the Air Jordan VI models to create one unique design.

To add some extra Spike-related touches, the retro kicks also sport a "Do You Know?" on the inner lining, a Mars lace lock, and a Mars Blackmon illustration on the insole along with the tag line, "Fresh Since 1985? printed below. You can plan to expect a lot of people to kick off the new decade with this new Jordan Brand release. Continue Reading...
