Shopping for Women's Jordan Spiz'ike shoes is even more difficult than shopping for Men's models because despite women's growing interest in collectible sneakers, Nike still does not manufacture as many pairs for women as they do for men. These iconic Air Jordans are a collaborative effort between basketball legend Michael Jordan and super star film maker Spike Lee. The sneakers are a tribute to Lee's alter ego Mars Blackmon from his 1986 film She's Gotta Have It. They are a combination of six older models of Air Jordans with lots of details that reference Lee's character and films. You can spot Spiz'ikes instantly because the back of every pair has a tiny, half portrait of Mars Blackmon's famous glasses and Brooklyn hat and a number 40 in reference to Lee's production company.
Jordan Spiz'ikes are not as simple to purchase as regular old Nike sneakers because the Spiz'ikes are released in limited batches. This makes them irresistible to sneaker collectors. Usually when a new model of Spiz'ike is released it sells out almost right away. If you want a pair of your own, you are going to have to figure out when the next release date is scheduled. You can do this by subscribing to Nike's newsletter or you can do this by following sneaker blogs. Sometimes the blogs are able to get more information about release dates before the newsletter.
Once you figure out a release date, you'll have to make sure that the sneaker is being released everywhere. Some Spiz'ikes you can buy online from Nike or at Nike stores and others are limited release. For example, the first Spiz'ikes were only available along I-95.
If you can't get your hands on a new pair of Spiz'ikes right when they are released, you can try buying a pair from a sneaker collector. Check online auctions. Be wary of fake sneakers, though, and make sure you buy from a reputable seller.
