Not many sneakers that Michael Jordan HASN’T worn on the court has escalated to the same success as the Air Jordan Spiz’ike (and the B’Loyal which is huge on the selling charts). But as long as they continue to sell, Jordan Brand will give the people what they want. It seems as though there has been a progression in colorways. Originally, many differing opinions existed with the white/red/green colorway, but slowly but surely each colorway has gotten progressively better reviews, and I don’t think these are any exception.
