Spike Lee Exclusive “Knicks” Jordan Spizikes

Spike Lee Exclusive Jordan Spizikes NY KnicksSpike Lee recently visited the Complex office to talk about his court-side rivalry with Jack Nicholson, his beef with Rudi, and his new school for sports journalism.

He walked in supporting his choice for ’08 as well as some exclusive Spizikes made just for him that he refers to as his “New York Knicks joints.” Spike also talks about how his relationship with Nike and Air Jordans started and they continue to support him and his work.

Nike and Michael Jordan made a $250,000 scholarship contribution for Spike’s new academic program which Spike said was “basically all the money they made on the Spizikes.” Let’s hope Spike isn’t teaching math at his new school.

Peep the video at Complex.

  1. LOL Matt you killed me with that line.

    $250k…Nike probably made more than that off of the FIRST Spizike that was limited to 4092 pairs.

  2. haha. if Nike somehow convinced Spike that they only made a quarter million off those shoes, he needs some new friends. and a new accountant… quick. haha.

  3. I am quite confident Nike and Jordan made much more than $250,000 on the Spizikes – probably closer to $25M. Either way it’s good to see that Spike and Mike still have a good relationship and I can’t wait for the Spike Lee Jordan Documentary.

    As for the shoes, I don’t MIND the white, but black would have been better. Seeing Spike throw the white on that panel makes me wonder if he had major influence in the Kings County color up that also had the white patent in what some would call an odd place.

  4. No doubt an all black base with orange and blue would be a nice Knicks colorway…in any event is it just me or does Spike Lee ALWAYS manage to make (even the illest) kicks look corny by rocking them with wack pants/jeans??? WTF

  5. spike lee always stay wit a fresh ugly azz pair of spizikes!!!!!!!!!!!! and dey always in dem weak ass new york knick colors!!!!!!!!YIKES

  6. Theese look better than the orange spizike’s he had last time and i dont know what yall talking bout cause I PERSONALLY LIKE THEM.

    so the rest of yall can STOP HATING !!! on my man spike

  7. i prefer the cool grey spizikes to these
    if they gon release any of tha new york knicks spizikes they should release those white and orange ones (in a picture a few weeks ago)

  8. spike- ”hey mike, whats up man”

    mike- hey spike

    spike- yo in commin to the jordan studios, i think im gonna make like 15 different exclusive colorways

    mike- no problem

    what i lucky man

  9. If they only made 250K off the spizikes it must be the same accountant that WESLEY SNIPES had taking care of his Taxes! They not bad but that WHITE siding is not looking good with this colorway.

  10. HAAAAAAAAAAAA thats some funny ish, “Let???s hope Spike isn???t teaching math at his new school” rofl

  11. why do they incest on having like 94 different colors on one kick?
    remove the white these joints would beast but they look kinda fake now

  12. screw the knicks! but I don’t find it hard to believe that they might’ve exploited Spike by giving him some insignificant amount of money for the use of his name. what he needs to do is come out w/ a celtics pair!

  13. i dont know why they keep messin w/ spzikes no one is gonna buy dem the need to make more jordan 1′s ya digg

  14. Ugly imo, but as long as ghetto and pseudo-thug people keep copping the spizikes and other jordan trash, the releasing will continue.

  15. “ghetto and pseudo-thug people keep copping the spizikes and other jordan trash, the releasing will continue”
    u stereotypin hard on people. not every body can afford top line like some people can. i kno people like that they save up and buy the mosy expensive pair that they can find just to have somthin no one else got
    the world does not revolve aroud you JT
