If sneakers could bear offspring, the next of kin to the Jordan Spizike might have resembled the Jordan Son of Mars.Released in April 2012, the Son of Mars drew from the six Jordan brand sneakers represented on the Spizike. Those sneakers were models on which filmmaker Spike Lee had some creative input along with the shoe’s namesake, Michael Jordan. The two struck up a relationship during Nike’s run of iconic TV commercials in the late 1980s and early ’90s in which Lee portrayed Mars Blackmon – from his 1986 film She’s Gotta Have It – and proclaimed the reason for Jordan’s greatness: “It’s gotta be the shoes!”The Jordan Son Of Mars was birthed from the Spizike, which was originally inspired by all the Jordan shoes made in collaboration with famous urban director Spike Lee. The Jordan Son of Mars has a hybrid design that combines several Air Jordan elements. They feature an Air Jordan VI-inspired upper, Air Jordan III elephant print toe/heel, Air Jordan IV midsole, and an Air Jordan V tongue, just to name a few. The design comes together nicely for a truly unique look. Benefits: leather and synthetic upper with perforated side panels for comfort and breathability, foam midsole with Air-Sole unit in the heel and forefoot for superb cushioning, translucent outsole for traction and durability, padded collar for comfort and an enhanced fit, elephant print overlays for signature style.
