There’s nothing like an original- remixes to songs can sometimes be over-done, sequels don’t live up to the first movie, re-released sneaks can… well… piss you off. So you can imagine people’s responses when the Spizikes were suppose to emerge- after the disappointment of Jordan Fusions.
Spizikes are a compilation of six retros: the III midsole, sole, & elephant/Spike print, IV wings, V netting and body of the shoe, VI tongue & lace locks, IX back tab, and XXI laser graphics on inside sockliner. Quite frankly, I think it’s safe to say they were a success. Some color-ways weren’t fan faves, but others were worth searching for.
And these Infrareds are definitely worth it. Equip with patent leather, suede, and premium leather, oh yea. Available in two color-ways – the varsity red/black was released May 8 (Happy Mother’s Day) and the black/new blue is set for June 5. When will we grow out of Mike’s? I’m thinking and hoping never. Judge me if you want, but if he keeps releasing joints like this? I’m rockin’ em ’til I’m 60. ~ Courtney Michelle
