Mars Blackmon will definitely have you asking "Is it the shoes?"

Mars Blackmon is a fictional character in the film She's Gotta Have It, originally played by its writer/director, Spike Lee and currently played by Anthony Ramos in the newly rebooted Netflix series. Mars is a Brooklyn-born super New York Knicks fan and true Michael Jordan stan! But most importantly, Mars is a legendary Sneaker Head!

He even coined the phrase "Is it the shoes?". So its no surprise that the 2017 version steps perfectly into his predecessor's shoes! So check out some of the super rare heat Mr. Blackmon rocked on the show.

These sneakers aren't really rare or super expensive. Actually, they're easy to find — but the black and white color way make them the ultimate go-to and that's why I think featuring them in the show is dope!

Another meta moment for Spike. This version of the 13 silhouette gained popularity from another Spike classic, He Got Game.
