These Air Jordan 4 Are Inspired By Do The Right Thing’s “Sal’s Pizzeria”

One of next year’s Air Jordan releases 2019 will be celebrating the 30th anniversary of Spike Lee’s comedy-drama film, Do The Right Thing. The film was originally released back in 1989. One of the most noteworthy locations in the film was Sal’s Famous Pizzeria. Spike Lee’s character Mookie works there as a delivery man. Radio Raheem, one of the film’s most prominent characters, is also killed there. Since it will be the thirtieth anniversary of the film next year, Jordan Brand will be releasing two Air Jordan 4 colorways inspired by the fictional yet iconic pizzeria. Here’s a clip from the film actually featured an Air Jordan 4.

Why Is Sal’s Famous Pizzeria So Significant In Do The Right Thing?

A lot of the racial conflict in the film revolves around Sal’s Pizzeria. The root of the conflict is the fact that the Wall of Fame in the restaurant features no black celebrities. In addition to Radio Raheem’s, another integral scene that takes place there happens soon after. Mookie throws a trashcan through the pizzeria’s window and the enraged onlookers proceed to completely demolish it. In the film, Sal’s Famous Pizzeria is located at the southwest corner of Stuyvesant and Lexington Avenues in Brooklyn. However, the pizzeria was actually built on a lot specifically for the production of Do The Right Thing.

Why The Air Jordan 4 For These Colorways?

As mentioned, Spike Lee actually wore a special Air Jordan 4 iteration in the film. The photos of these Air Jordan 4 NRG colorways are actually Photoshop renditions by zSneakerHeadz. They are also being referred to as “Gucci” iterations due to their color scheme. Of course, the colors they are dressed up in have actually been borrowed from the Italian flag and more specifically, Sal’s Famous Pizzeria. One is nearly all-Black, while the other is mostly plain White, but they most feature similar Gorge Green– and Varsity Red-colored accents. According to zSneakerHeadz, they will both be joining next year’s Air Jordan releases 2019 in April in limited quantities.
