The Son of Mars is still a fairly new addition to the Jordan Brand catalog, but its story traces back nearly 30 years ago, when Spike Lee founded his 40 Acres and a Mule Filmworks production company. Without that moment, there's no She's Gotta Have It. And without the landmark film, there's no Mars Blackmon. See where this is going?
For a more through breakdown, Champs Sports' The Drop has put together a detailed visual evolution of the Son of Mars, from the 1986 introduction of 40 Acres and a Mule to its most recent colorway launch. You can view the feature now at The Drop.
