No doubt, Jordan Brand has been drawing tremendous inspiration from Warner Bros. characters Bugs Bunny and Lola Bunny for the Looney Tunes, but they are apparently not the only ones. There are probably many little ones who admire the Tasmanian Devil and this particular Jordan Spiz’ike GS pair is inspired by the destructive Taz. This colorway that Jordan Brand has aptly dubbed “Taz” has already arrived at retailers on one of the recent Jordan release dates 2015.
As a part of celebrating their 30th anniversary, Jordan Brand has been using the Looney Tunes as a source of inspiration for their “Hare Collection.” They have already dropped Bugs Bunny- and Lola Bunny-themed Air Jordan colorways. This time it is the growling and spinning, youngest Looney Tunes character who is the focus of this latest GS-exclusive Air Jordan Spiz’ike iteration.
Jordan Brand’s renowned hybrid silhouette has an upper that is primarily made up of Black nubuck leather, while Bright Citrus, Bright Crimson and Court Purple colored accents are also featured on this sneaker. This pair also reflects Taz’s wild nature with its multicolored laces and the Cement/Elephant Print covered panels that are present over the heel and toecap. The midsole is speckled and the stitching contrasts with upper. Last but not least, whirlwind-like patterns, resembling the Tasmanian Devil’s movements, can be spotted on this sneaker, while an illustration of the character is also present on the insole.
A week or so ago, another GS-exclusive “Tasmanian Devil” colorway of the Air Jordan 1 High had also been unveiled, and now this Spiz’ike rendition has also made its retail debut. The fact that this sneaker is inspired by a well-known Looney Tunes character and that it is so colorful to sure to appeal to the youngsters. May 6th was one of the expected Jordan release dates 2015 slated for this Air Jordan Spiz’ike “Taz” retail debut and it indeed retailed for $125 on that very date.
