Air Jordan Son of Mars, bits and pieces of Jordan history.

Six years after the Jordan Spizike launch, in 2012 the innovative Jordan Son of Mars were introduced into the market.

Following the thought process used with the Spizike and based on a mix of elements from different models from Brand 23, a new and unique model was formed.
Pieces were taken from the III, IV, V, VI and IX Jordans to create the Jordan Spizike. Want to know which models go into the Son of Mars?


The midsole comes from the Air Jordan V. The famous air chamber remains visible, which absorbs each and every impact you receive while walking. The Son of Mars tongue is taken from the same model.

Meanwhile, the lower part of the upper with the elephant print was chosen from the Air Jordan III. This same print was featured in the Air Jordan III, which Michael was wearing when he won the Slam Dunk contest in 1988.


Maybe the part that least stands out in the sneaker is the one that comes from the Jordan IV, which is the mesh found on the tongue.
The ankle part on the Air Jordan Son of Mars comes from the Jordan VI and it’s in charge of protecting your ankle with each step thanks to the cushions on each side.

Overall, the Jordan Son of Mars is a modern model with just three years under its belt, but within them, many years of Nike history can be found.
