The new Jordan Spiz'ike 'Bordeaux' will be released in Feb. 2012, but President Barack Obama got first dibs.

While in Harlem, Ny. Spike Lee presented Obama the kicks with the presidential seal carved in a wood box, also containing the No. 23 carved into the side.

The shoes will be on sale in February for 175. What do you think of Obama's new kicks? Can you see him wearing them? Do you plan on getting your hands on a pair?
