At a fund-raiser over the weekend, director Spike Lee presented President Obama with a special pair of Jordan Spizikes high-top sneakers. The Spizikes line, a collaboration between Lee and Nike, are sneakers incorporating "mashed up" elements of up to six different Air Jordan designs; President Obama's "Boredeaux" pair aren't officially available until next month — and his came in a special wooden box with the Presidential seal on it.
