Spike Lee is developing a TV series loosely based on the life of tech entrepreneur Chad Sanders.
J. Cole and Spike Lee are putting their full support behind Colin Kaepernick.
Spike Lee is bringing ‘She’s Gotta Have It’ to Netflix, and you can catch a brand new sneak peek here.
It's impossible to single out one pair of Air Jordans as the rarest in the world. There's several one-offs, as well as a few mysterious samples that can't or haven't been explained. However, Kris Arnold can make the claim that he at least owns one of the rarest Air Jordans, and he stopped by Sole Collector's Full Size Run last week to share the story of how he obtained this likely unicorn.
During the early 90s, Arnold worked as an account executive at ProServ, a sports management firm that included Michael Jordan as one of its clients. Among the many projects ProServ worked on for Jordan was helping put together his Nike deal. Jordan had parted ways with the company a year early, prompting an office cleanout of gear that had been stored and displayed. When Arnold saw two Air Jordan sneakers on the verge of being tossed out, he asked if he could take them instead. The shoes were early production samples of the original “Chicago” and “Black Toe” Air Jordan 1s.
“I happened to be there in my office while it was happening and I said, 'No, I’ll take those.’” Arnold told us in a 2015 interview. “They were going to just throw them in the trash. That’s what they would’ve done hands down.”
At first glance, one may not notice the differences between Arnold's shoes and the pairs that actually released, but there are distinguishing features. For example, the overall shape of the samples is a bit more sleek, the cut is lower, the Swooshes are larger, the toebox cut is minimal and there's subtle differences on the outsole.
To date, Arnold has received big money offers for his Jordans, but not one that has seriously made him consider selling. With that said, he hasn't completely ruled out parting with the shoes.
See Arnold discuss his rare samples in the video above, which also includes segments on the new Spike Lee x Air Jordan 1, DJ Khaled x Air Jordan 3, Lonzo Ball x Foot Locker and more. Subscribe to Full Size Size Run on YouTube and iTunes for future episodes

Making fun of someone for being unemployed doesn’t seem like it would be a smart move for a sitting president. But that’s essentially what Donald Trump did on Monday night.
While delivering a speech at a rally in Louisville, Kentucky, Trump inexplicably took a shot at former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick. It sounds like Trump is taking great pride in the fact that Kaepernick is not currently signed to an NFL team, and he thinks he may have something to do with it. He believes NFL owners are shying away from inking Kaepernick to a deal because they know Trump is not above calling them out for doing it on social media.
“Your San Francisco quarterback, I’m sure nobody ever heard of him,” he said. “There was an article today, it was reported, that NFL owners don’t want to pick him up because they don’t want to get a nasty tweet from Donald Trump. Do you believe that?”
Trump then added that he was talking about Kaepernick with those gathered in Kentucky “because they like it when people actually stand for the American flag.”
This is not the first time Trump has gone after Kaepernick. Shortly after he started taking a knee during the national anthem before games last season, the QB called Trump “openly racist.” And that led Trump to fire back when the then-presidential candidate was asked for a comment about Kaepernick during a radio interview.
“I have followed [the Kaepernick story], and I think it’s personally not a good thing,” Trump said. “I think it’s a terrible thing. And you know, maybe he should find a country that works better for him. Let him try, it won’t happen.”
Trump’s comments came just one day after Spike Lee took to Instagram to question why an NFL team hadn’t stepped up to sign Kaepernick:
Spike continued to ask that same question on Tuesday morning in light of Trump’s most recent comments:
Kaepernick is yet to respond to Trump.
