Twenty-five years ago, Michael Jordan etched a noter piece of his legacy with his victory in the 1988 Slam Dunk Contest in Chi-Town. Equally to the extent of the victory itself, the shoes lived on to take a life of their own. And just in case you needed a come up, now’s your lucky day.
My homies Vaughan and Steve are brains behind the new sneaker spot in Richmond, Virginia. While the spot doesn’t officially open its doors until April, they’re getting things started early by giving away a pair of the Air Jordan Retro 3′s “1988.” Come tomorrow at 6:23 p.m., an announcement will be made about the steps needed to win. Check their Facebook page today at 6:23 p.m.
And if you’re wondering the significance of 6:23, you were never a real Jordan fan to begin with.
