The “Cinco de Mayo” weekend will be commencing with full force all over the United States, including Las Vegas, Nevada. The HBO pay-per-view fight between Amir Khan and Saúl lvarez is also scheduled to take place in Las Vegas this weekend as well. However, there is another very talented boxer, who also happens to be a Jordan Brand athlete, will also be present in Las Vegas. He is none other than the undefeated “Son of God” Andre Ward, who will be at Shoe Palace on May 7th between noon and 2 p.m. for a “Meet and Greet” autograph session.
There is a reason Jordanheads will want to take interest in this news. The primary reason he is making an appearnace at Shoe Palace’s Las Vegas location is for the launch of his Jordan Brand Collection of apparell and shoewear. However, in commemoration of his appearance there on the Saturday, they made announcement via their Twitter account (@ShoePalace) that several “special Jordan releases” would get restock at the store. Apparently, these “special Jordan Brand releases” will include some coveted Air Jordan sneakers from recent times, and although not Shoe Palace did not mention, some of the kicks being re-stocked have been revealed.
One of the sneakers that will be among these Retro gems is the Air Jordan 11 “Legend Blue,” which is virtually regarded as a retro of the silhouette’s “Columbia” colorway and was 2014’s Holiday Air Jordan 11 release. While Jordanheads have had plenty of Air Jordan 12 iterations to cop as of lately, the Air Jordan 12 “Taxi” that originally made its retail debut back in 1997 is also getting restocked at Shoe Palace. The sneakers that can be seen in the photo that accompanies this post will also be a part of the restock.
Obviously, this is great news for Jordanheads who are in Las Vegas, whether residing there or visiting for the “Cinco de Mayo” weekend. They should definitely pay a visit to any of the Shoe Palace location in Grand Canal Shops, Las Vegas to both meet and get Andre Ward’s autograph and also potentially grab a pair or more of the Air Jordan sneakers being restocked there.
