2010 is the year of the Jordanhead. Not only is it the 25th year of the Air Jordan line,, the year’s been filled with kicks that you really can’t miss out on. We’ve seen the Silver Anniversary pairs come out, a ton of VIs, and a host of others. From new kicks to rehashes from the collection, it seems like the Jordan Brand’s mission this year was to send everyone to the poor house with their releases. One thing that hasn’t really appealled to a lot of heads are hybrids. Hybrids may sometimes complement (though oftentimes ruin) classics, but they’re there really to give the new generation their own take at a shoe’s history.
Among all the hybrids (at least this is what I can recall) of the Js, the Spiz’ikes can be catergorized as one of the better ones. On May 8 (or possibly being sold on other stores already) ,Nike Park BHS will be selling this version of the Spiz’ike. Others have dubbed this as the Infrared Spiz’ike, even if it’s just the midsole and portions of the outsole that has the coveted color. The cw (black/new blue/white/infrared) is pretty clean and comes off as one of the better looking ‘zikes around.
Aside from the infrared being the x-factor, the shoe also has an icy blue sole (another favorite of shoe heads) and a white-on-white elephant print, a design aspect taken from the IIIs. With the rumor of the shoe being designed by DJ Clark Kent being discarded, wouldn’t this be a nice pick up regardless? The shoe’s lace buckle has ‘Mars’ on the left, with ‘Mike’ on the right. The Spiz’ike also carries the Mars image and Spike Lee’s 40 Acres logo on the shoe’s heel tab.
Just so everyone’s in the know, the shoe drops this Saturday (if they haven’t sold them yet).
