In 1991, Duke University basketball program was on the verge of becoming this generation’s version on the 1960′s Boston Celtics. But legend has it that after the 1990 loss to UNLV for the crown, Mike Krzyzewski was looking for a change. Others thought he was thinking something else, but he was looking for something extra. Then, the Air Max Uptempo was born, and like a father seeing his newborn child for the first time, it was love at first sight. Many believed that there was something more to the story. It had to be more than a shoe that would make Coach K. just up and change his shoe contracts for his entire program. Those who say that probably have never had the privilege of wearing a pair of shoes that pros swear by.
Dubbed after the epic June 1996 bout of Mexican boxing legend Julio Cesar Chavez and then rising star Oscar De La Hoya, come the appropriately titled Ultimate Glory dunks. Paying tribute, each shoe features both fighters names embroidered at the heels combined with a red cement print upper. The solid color scheme is very reminiscent of the bloodshed by Julio Cesar, which pre-maturely stopped the fight in the 4th round. #igsneakerhead #igsneakercommunity #overtime (Taken with Instagram at where the game starts over)
