Considering that fall is around the corner, this Jordan Spizike is perfect for the changing seasons.
In today’s sneaker culture, Air Jordan hybrids are looked down upon as being “not quite like” an actual Jordan shoe, even though the pieces match those in the main Jordan line. The Spizike isn’t immune to that critique, and at a time when hybrids are becoming more and more common, the shoe is a combination of the most iconic sneakers in Michael Jordan’s signature line.
For example, the tooling is taken from the Air Jordan 3, the upper is a mix of both the Air Jordan 4 and Air Jordan 5, while the tongue is plucked from the Air Jordan 6. Additionally, the heel pull tab and logo comes from the Air Jordan 9 while the interior lining comes from the Air Jordan 20. And although the upper may feel comfortable, don’t expect anything too groundbreaking with the cushion considering that it’s the same setup used 30 years ago.
The Jordan Spizike was originally created with iconic director and filmmaker Spike Lee in 2006 to celebrate his relationship with Michael Jordan. You can learn more by checking out Nightwing2303’s Jordan Spizike Detailed Look and Review.
There has been no confirmed release date as of yet for the Jordan Spizike ‘Olive Green/Grey’ but you can expect the shoe to drop on nike.com and select Nike retailers soon. Retail should be the usual $175 but keep it locked to WearTesters for any updates.
