Nike’s iconic basketball sneakers have been re-released with vintage-inspired details and modern styles. Inspired by the infamous style originally worn by Michael Jordan, these reboots are just as stellar as their original counterparts. Get the details on the new Air Jordan style from Footwear News below:
A popular Air Jordan sneaker is back in two vintage-inspired looks.
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.
