Last night, the 76th annual Golden Globe Awards honored the best in both film and television. Among the talented group was filmmaker Spike Lee, who was gifted a pair of gold kicks from Jordan Brand that were specially made for the special occasion.
Lee took to Instagram to preview a customized pair of Air Jordans inspired by his latest comedy-drama film “BlacKkKlansman.” Created by legendary footwear designer Tinker Hatfield, the mid-top style sports an all-gold upper with a matching gold tongue and laces. Additional details include a side-zipper with two different brands on the heel — the Jumpman logo appears on the left shoe, while the crest of Lee’s production company, 40 Acres and a Mule Filmworks, is on the right.
The decorated kicks also were adorned with slogans on the midsole: “Truth to Power,” “Speak on It” and “Resist.” The sneakers are likely a one-of-one, made exclusively for Lee, which means the likelihood of a formal release is low.
Lee’s long history with Jordan Brand dates all the way back to the late ’80s, when he played the fictional character Mars Blackmon in the movie “She’s Gotta Have It.” He later reprised that role in many Nike Air Jordan commercials, where he helped coin the catchphrase “It’s gotta be the shoes.”
Lee was nominated for Best Director at the 2019 Golden Globe Awards, and the “BlacKkKlansman” was up for Best Drama.
