GS Air Jordan Spike 40


What Air Jordan Spike 40 Is All About:

  • This Jordan line has close ties to Spike Lee’s character Mars Blackmon in She’s Gotta Have It (1986)
  • In the film, Mars is a “Brooklyn-loving” fan of the New York Knicks and Air Jordans
  • In late 1980s and early 1990s, “Mars” made appearances in Nike Air Jordan commercials alongside Jordan and became well known for his use of the phrase, “It’s gotta be da shoes.”
  • As of January 2011, Nike resumed using the character for its Air Jordan “Spiz’ike” line of shoes

The Design

  • Durable upper with Black/Silver and accents of Sport Fuchsia
  • Clear, translucent blue outsole
  • ‘Nike Air’ branding on each back heel

Your little one may be too young to know who Spike Lee or Mars Blackmon are, but that doesn’t mean they can’t wear this stylish sneaker. Ladies, remember you can size down 1.5 from regular shoe size and have a Jordan day with your girls.
