Bits and pieces of the upcoming Air Jordan “Do the Right Thing” are slowly surfacing. It originally began with the Jordan III’s, other Jordan Brand footwear, then clothing. Now the latest pictures come in the way of the Spiz’ike. Unlike the Jordan III, these Spiz’ikes have a less liberal use of the brisk blue color, however the two toned cement print and the paint splatter are pretty different.
