The Jordan Spizike combines elements of iconic shoes worn by Michael Jordan, including the Air Jordan 3 (elephant print overlays at heel and toe and overall profile), Air Jordan 4 (lace support wings), Air Jordan 5 (eyelets, mesh underlays and ankle collar), Air Jordan 6 (tongue), Air Jordan 9 (heel badge) and Air Jordan 20 (laser-engraved details).

Originally debuting in 2006 in a limited-edition run of white and black colorways accented by red and green — with a handful of pairs signed by Spike Lee, the filmmaker whose Mars Blackmon character helped inspired the model — the Spizike quickly went on to become a favorite among many Air Jordan fans.
One of its most popular styles, 2007’s “White/Cement” makeup, is now back again a decade after its debut. But to make the deal even sweeter, Jordan Brand readied another Air Jordan 3-inspired “Black/Cement” look that carries over all of the same details but swaps a white leather build for black.
Both of these retro-inspired styles are available now for $175 each from nike.com and select Jordan Brand retailers.
