We don't usually do this, but the demand is strong and supply is limited. The Air Jordan 13 3Ms drop Saturday, October 4th, 2014, and you'll need to enter a raffle for a chance to purchase the sneakers. Stop by Alumni on Thursday, October 2nd, 2014 to pick up your ticket; we'll announce the winners on Friday, and if you are one of the lucky ones, come to the shop on Saturday to claim (and pay for) your pair.
A little history on the 13s... First released in 1997, the sneakers marked the beginning of Jordan Brand as a separate entity from Nike. The design, conceptualized and executed by Tinker Hatfield, was inspired by the black panther, and the influence is clearly seen in the hologram (panther eyes) as well as the sole, which resembles the elegant animal's paws. MJ lead the Chicago Bulls through a 62-game winning season and the NBA Championship in the 13s, and in the film He Got Game, Jake Shuttlesworth laces up in a fresh pair of the white-black-red OGs. With that said, the 3Ms are coveted for the rippled, reflective upper, and the very appropriate use of sure-shot Jordan colors, black and Infrared.
