Year: 2006

Originally the Spizike was going to be a one-time-only drop, but after Jordan Brand saw how well the hybrid did they decided to drop numerous colorways and release them all over. The sneaker borrows traits from six Jordan models: the Jordan III’s elephant print, the IV’s wings to hold the laces, the overall silhouette and eyelets of the V, the lace locks and tongue from the VI, the IX for the back tab, and the XX’s lasered graphics in the sockliner. The sidepanel mesh is from the IV or V, depending on the shoe. The best part is letting the tongue hang out like Mike.
