Kanye’s Fav Jordans, Featuring Spike Lee


Clover Hope / January 22, 2010

Kanye West knows a lot about sneakers. Partnering with Nike last year, the producer released his series of limited edition kicks, the Air Yeezys. He was also rumored to be working on shoes with Nike affiliate, Air Jordan, which he quickly dismissed. But that doesn’t mean he’s not a fan of the brand. This week on his blog, the native Chicagoan paid homage to No. 23 by posting five classic Air Jordan commercials featuring director Spike Lee as “Mars Blackmon.” FYI, tomorrow (Jan. 23), Air Jordan drops the Retro Premium 6, a rerelease of the pair that first came out in 1990. And Air Jordan celebrates its 25th anniversary on Feb 13 with the Air Jordan XXV. Go on, get you some. –Brad Wete
