Celebrity Rewind: Denzel Buys Air Jordan 13 in “He Got Game”


Spike Lee’s sneaker game doesn’t stop at the sideline. The award winning director brings his love of kicks to the big screen, inserting the shoes that define the time. Case in point, He Got Game. While tons of heat is rocked through out the flick, the most iconic moment is when poppa Shuttlesworth cops the Air Jordan 13. Denzel wears the Jordan 13 throughout the flick and his son, played by Ray Allen, is seen sporting the same pair near film’s end. Do yourself and a favor and watch the whole movie.

  8. He got game is one of my favorite movies of all time!!!

    Next time u see the movie notice the heat throughout….
    For example:
    The Lincoln HS practice shoes are Uptempo IIIs
    Jesus sports the pearls as an everyday day shoe.
    He wears flight ???s as a kid
    And my all-time favorite… Flight Hawks when he’s playing Denzel in the last scene.
    (lil booger rocks heat too)

  9. These were my first pair of J’s ever!! Got these in the 5th grade. If only I knew then what i know now I would have kept them. I want them to re-release these!

  10. I liked this scene…..even though we know DAAAAMN WELL those would’ve been sold out in real life! Lol! Gotta love the Spike hook-up :) But I’m sure when he saw the FLINT GREYS come out, he was SICK!!!
