[Style Addict] For The Love Of Jordans..(HIStory)

Meet Spoc Jenkins.A well-groomed gentleman from Upstate New York, my best friend to be exact. When I first saw him back in 2004 I just knew he was a NBA player. However that surely wasn’t the case being as though we were in a training class for Verizon Wireless. LOL. Nonetheless Spoc is a huge advocate of the Jordan brand. No, like really! It’s deeper than just standing on long lines, copping them before a release date or tattooing the Jordan sign on his chest. The Air Jordan’s are apart of his history. His name is Spoc Jenkins and this is HIStory. “It was May 1995 in Rochester, NY. The Great Michael Jordan had recently unretired by sending in a one page fax to (NBA Commissioner) David Stern stating simply, “I’m Back.” In the playoffs that same year Jordan debuted his 11th shoe (Concords) in a series against the Orlando Magic w/ the number 45 on the back replacing his previous one, “23.” Jordan and the Bulls would go on to lose the series to “Penny” Hardaway, (a young) Shaq, and the Magic in 6 games. For the first time since 1990 (versus the Detroit Pistons) in the Playoffs Michael seemed, human.” Head inside to read more and grab a Kleenex.

Later on that year My brother was born on September 25. I remember my father placing him in my arms in the delivery room and I couldn’t stop looking at him. At that moment (as with my sister in 1989) I knew what LOVE truly was. I wasn’t just a kid “existing” anymore, I began living. Someone to guide, help mold, and a revival was all wrapped in one a 9 lb package called Tyrone Burno. Later that year for Christmas I received those same air Jordans w/ a “23” on the back. Jordan was indeed “back” that next season and the Chicago Bulls would go on to a 72-10 regular season (record breaking to this day) record and win the NBA Championship on father’s day 1996. Jordan cried on the floor as his father had been murdered on a road trip 3 years earlier, magnifying the moment even more. See, these aren’t

just shoes for me… they’re a watershed moment in my life

Spoc Jenkin also creates cool concepts for photo-shoots. Below is his little brother Mr.9.25 rockin a spiffy bowtie and yes folks the Air Jordan Concords are on his feet. NICCCCE!!

I know this was long, and if you did, Spoc and I sincerely thank you for reading.

Being that 1) its a wig and 2) we don't want to see you in a local Walmart, dragging these inches almost tripping while trying to strut....GIRL!! Anyway! “MotorSport” is the lead single off Migos’ upcoming album Culture II, due in January. Check the video out below.
