Spike Lee just got the VIP treatment, courtesy of the folks over at Jordan Brand.
The Chiraq director was gifted his very own pair of "Oscar Edition" Air Jordan VIs, and they're amazing.
The famed director/world-renowned basketball fan took to Instagram, revealing that the one-of-a-kind Jordans are gold-leafed, meaning that the upper is made with a thin sheet of actual gold. They also feature a glittery translucent tongue and heel tabs with an all-white midsole.
So, seeing as these shoes are literally a piece of art, will Spike be wearing them? Not quite. "They will sit next to the Oscar on my home mantelpiece," he said.
