The highly anticipated revamp of the Spider-Man franchise with Miles Morales replacing the character Peter Parker was officially unveiled yesterday, as Phil Lord and Christopher Miller released the trailer for the animated project Spider-Man: Into the Spider-verse. While comic fans were predictably excited about the fresh take on Spidey, the clip peaked the curiosity of another segment of enthusiasts for a completely unexpected reason.

Viewers quickly noticed that Spider-Man is doing whatever a spider can in what appears to be an animated pair of "Chicago" Air Jordan 1s.

In this version of Spider-Man, Morales is an afro-latino teenager who assumed the role after witnessing the death of Parker at the hands of Green Goblin. The character, which was first introduced in 2011, and his choice of footwear spawned a long list of responses on Twitter.
