Sneakerhead (noun): a person who collects, trades, or admires sneakers as a form of hobby. Not quite a sneakerhead but still appreciate a good-looking shoe? Enter the Air Jordan Spizike. The world was first introduced to the sneaker, designed to commemorate the friendship between Michael Jordan and Spike Lee, in 2006. Over the years, the Spizike has seen its fair share of design changes and colorway introductions. And now, thanks to NikeiD, sneakerheads and regular folk alike can customize their Jordan Spizike iD sneakers from top to bottom, creating a look that’s entirely their own.

According to the Nike Launch Calendar, the newest Jordan Spizike is available in a variety of exclusive materials and colors, including denim. Choose from regular denim or an 80s-inspired black or midnight-navy acid wash, add a glow-in-the-dark outsole, and top off the look with bold laces if you so desire. And at $210 a pop, it’s a small price to pay for a piece of sneaker history.
For the ideal laid-back look, pair your custom Spizikes with a solid tee, cashmere cardigan, and narrow-leg denim (need a new set? Check out our Denim Fit Guide).
