I bought a pair of Nike Air Jordan 2 sneakers when they came out in the glorious 80s. I paid them $ 120 which was outrageous in 1986, but they were the coolest sneakers I have ever had views. I wore them for years, and eventually threw them away in the 90s.
Funny what you regret throwing away later in life. We’ve all seen someone unknowingly throw away an old comic or a toy that has gained tremendous value, right? I never considered keeping my old rotten shoes, but many of you have, and now there are stores that specialize in classic / retro / high end sneakers. If you’ve ever wanted to step foot in the $ 650 Yeezys, beat them against Portal in the stores of Mohegan Sun.
Portal is a new retail store, described as “established on the reverence of sneaker and streetwear culture,” which has just opened at Mohegan Sun Casino in Uncasville, CT. According to Jeff Hamilton, president and CEO of Mohegan Sun, Portal offers classic iconic sneaker brands like Nike, Air Jordan, Yeezy, Puma, as well as today’s top brands like Just Don, Bape and Honor the Gift. .
If you’re looking for something specific, like a pair of Nike Air Jordan 2s from 1986, Portal has a priority access program that will connect shoppers with hard-to-find items. If you’re a Mohegan Sun regular like me, you can also pay for your purchase on Portal with Momentum Rewards. Get lucky and you might come away with a new set of kicks.
The portal is located in Mohegan Sun stores and is open Monday to Saturday from 11:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. and Sunday from 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.
