You Are Blind. These Spizike’s Be Cray.

January 24, 2012 | 29

Although 2012 just started, that is the quote of the year thus far, so it was only right that I used it as a title for this shoe. Spike Lee presented President Obama with a special Jordan package last week. When Spike announced the news via Twitter, one of his followers replied stating that the shoe is ugly. Spike Lee responded with a simple reply saying: “Lady, you are blind. These Spizike’s be cray.” Hilarious! If you agree with Mars Blackmon, you can scoop a pair when they hit stores. Release date is February 4. Retail is $175. Enjoy the official photos.

  1. These are just as wild as something J.Scott would put out…..but the brandwashing has me loving these! Brandwashing….like how I did that created a new word with brainwashing and….. well you get it. JJH, we got another Thursday Thoughts topic!

  2. Executive

    Ugly and definitely not worth almost $200!!

  3. Jerronimo aka Seattle Slimm

    Look like McDonalds (limited edition) Jordans…lol.. U could not give these to me!

    But peeps will still buy them anyway cus of the HYPE. U know u wrong JB! Stop taking these kids lunch money.

  4. LOL.. AT THE CAPTION G-ROCK.. I THINK SPIKE NEED SOME THICKER SPECS CAUSE HE IS CRAY FOR PUTTIN THESE OUT..

    These are ugly period. Bad colorway. Best spizikes were the Knicks joints and the 1st 2 OG colorways.

  6. MelloYelloMD

    joints turrible…

    I wouldn’t cop these even if President Obama sold his pair to me below retail price.
    Hey did y’all see Obama rocking these during his State of the Union Address tonight. LOL.

    How dare you disrespect the President with these Crayola Sh*ts. Whats wrong with Designers these days and there Color Coding? I’m really trying to find the inspiration behind these and Nothing stands out. I Mean was he even thinking about the Oval Office when he made these??
    Terrible.

    Garbage!!!!

  11. Do some patriotic sh!t with small details that’d tie em into Obama’s run as President if you’re gonna have the honor of creating a shoe for him, not just have a gay unicorn vomit into a Spiz’ike mold after eating too many Fruity Pebbles….these SUCK.

    ^oh hell no…LOL

    I nabbed the cool grey’s and the Mars Edition. They were tolerable.

    But most, including this one, just don’t understand it. I get the color scheme being designed after the bordoux, but for Obama?

    I agree with TM, do something in maybe a red, white and blue. Add something related to him. Weather it’s his Chicago roots of his being born in Hawaii.

    I sometimes think I’m in the wrong business.

  13. These are a disgrace to the Bordo’s itself. Grey should be darker, and colors should not be this wild. So far fromm being worth $200 damn near. Try again.

    Love Spike, but this is some GOP shoe right here…

  15. snkrcritique

    He shouldve gave him the DTRT spizikes since Obama and Michelle saw that movie on their first date

  16. goat612

    DTRT Spizike is besst hands down…..
    these are cool cuz they are unique, but Rubio Pass

  17. Chaz

    These are trash.

  18. Big Gai

    These Spizikes look even better then what was expected copped yesterday and I’m really liking these shoes. its about time they changed the color way up on the shoes. Has anyone heard anything else about the University Blue color way ?

  19. @iSpyF_ckery

    I actually like these. I’m not a big fan of colorful shoes, but I’m satisfied with these. It’s not too much goin on. It’s just right. Everyone has their own taste, but I honestly do not think these are ugly. Somebody will buy ‘em lol.

  20. @iSpyF_ckery

    To add to my last comment. Maybe it’s one of those shoes you just have to see in person. When the Cool Greys came out I didn’t like them until I saw them in person.

  21. Matt

    eek!!! Spike what were u thinking with these they look like lego shoes and its not even the real bordeaux colorway!! Well at least we knw when we see the guess my footwear article with these featured we knw it may be obama….i would probably crack up seein him wear em and try rock em fresh though he may just use em for b-ball and @Sek about the colorways ur right but also include the DTRT True Blue and Kings County colorways those were all fire!!
