Film Director / Producer / Writer / Actor / New York Knicks #1 Fan / Mars Blackmon, etc. celebrates his 56th birthday today, and we'll honor one of the sneaker community's most beloved celebrities by taking a look at some of his Madison Square Garden courtside kicks worn throughout recent years. 

From his days in the late 1980's as Mars Blackmon alongside Michael Jordan in Air Jordan commercials, to the Air Jordan IV and XIII incorporated into two of his best films, (Do The Right Thing and He Got Game, respectively) to the Nike Air Raid campaign and plenty of other Nike sneaker ad appearances along the way, Spike Lee has been ingrained in sneaker culture for nearly thirty years. 

Being one of Nike's biggest ambassadors allows certain perks, as you'll see with Spike's impressive rotation of sneakers throughout the years, including his own signature shoe, the Air Jordan Spiz'ike, which combines pieces of each Air Jordan from the Mars Blackmon commercials.  As a huge Knicks fan, many of Spike's courtside kicks are flavored in blue and orange, like his exclusive Air Foamposite One and Air Jordan XX8 colorways. 

Check out Spike Lee's amazing collection of courtside kicks below...and these are only the ones we found pictures of! Happy birthday, Spike!
