Marcus Jordan sneaker controversy on Wanda Sykes

In case you haven't heard about this yet, Marcus Jordan (son of the legendary Michael Jordan) who attends University of Central Florida, an Adidas endorsed program, has refused to wear the Adidas team sneakers and is sticking with his pops' Air Jordan brand shoes. This has caused Adidas to drop UCF and we'll have to wait and see if Nike/Jordan picks them up. Here is a clip from the hilarious Wanda Sykes with guest John Salley.

Sedgwick & Cedar is proud to celebrate the pioneering spirit, creativity and the style where Hip Hop began in 1973 at the Sedgwick Avenue & Cedar Park intersection of The Bronx, NYC.

We are driven every day to represent the style of the original DJ’s, MC’s, B-boy Crews and Grafitti Artists that laid the foundation of Hip Hop at the first house parties, block parties and park jams. We come with “much respect” to honor those that paved the way for what has now emerged as the most popular cultural phenomenon of this century.

Just arrived at the shop, S&C shirts of some of the pioneers as well as the original flyer collection, featuring the actual artwork from old school handbills for classic jams of back in the day! Limited quantities so don't sleep... stay tuned for more from Sedgwick & Cedar coming soon!
