Ever since the Elephant Print made its first appearance of Michael Jordan’s third signature, it became a classic aesthetic of Air Jordan sneakers. Michael Jordan wanted his basketball sneaker to look luxurious and Tinker Hatfield achieved MJ’s wish by introducing the Elephant Print. Ironically, the “Wolf Grey” version was one of the most popular Air Jordan 3 colorway of 2014, which was released soon before the model was discontinued. Now, small-footed 23isBack readers should rejoice because one of the upcoming December 2014 Jordan release dates will mark the retail debut of a Jordan Spiz’ike that combines both these elements.
Jordan Brand is all set to release this Air Jordan Spiz’ike GS for all the junior Jordan heads, and of course, this also means girls and women will also be able to slip their feet into this new jordans. Perhaps if some shade of green was a part of the color scheme, maybe somewhat like the OG colorway of the Spiz’ike, then this iteration could be regarded as a more appropriate Christmas release. However, even then, this sneaker tends to give off quite the festive vibes.
The base of the upper is in the same wolf grey hue that was seen on the Air Jordan 3 earlier this year. The wolf grey base of the upper has been combined with black accenting, cement grey panels and Gym Red lining. Beneath the complex upper of this sneaker is a white midsole and a Gym Red outsole, both of which contrast well with the upper. Surprisingly, despite being a GS pair, this version of the Jordan Spiz’ike is quite sophisticated and subtle rather than vibrant and vivid.
Nonetheless, 23isBack readers with small feet will likely want to get their hands on this Air Jordan Spiz’ike GS “Black/Gym Red/Wolf Grey.” Even though December 10 is now amongst confirmed 2014 Jordan release dates that was recently announced by Jordan Brand, this sneaker pair can also be copped on eBay rightaway.
