Air Jordan Spike Forty PE “Game Royal”.

by Henrik Buzzi

Following in the footsteps of the Jordan Spizike and the Jordan Son of Mars, Jordan brand proudly presents the third silhouette in the Spike Lee franchise, the Spike Forty. The lucky designers at Jordan were given access to Tinker Hatfields’s sketch vault to come up with the inspiration for these. The features on the shoe such as the clear outsole, reflective material, lace toggle as well as additional details on the lace tips and tongue are all reminiscent of the Air Jordan V. Alongside these the modern, crafted textile and moulded TPU based upper represent Jordan DNA, while a phylon midsole with heel unit zoom air adds comfort. The shoe pays reference to Spike Lee’s 40 Acres and a Mule production company using the “Sho-Nuff” and “Ya-Dig” mottos in the inner tongue detailing and the Game Royal/Total Orange color way are of course representative of Spike’s beloved New York Knicks.
