See What This Nike Employee Received As A Going Away Gift 

“Every sneakerhead has a handful of J’s they’ve always wanted, but never managed to get. They’re the ones that got away.” This is what Victor Nguyen-Long said when he found this package sitting outside his door. Victor Nguyen-Long was Nike Sportswear’s Digital Brand Manager and he recently parted ways with the brand, and as a going away gift his team decided to give him a pair of Jordan’s he was unable to get his hands on on the original release, The Air Jordan 3 “Black Cement”. The shoes he received were part of the 2008 Countdown Pack. Now, this is a pretty neat gift though what put “the icing on the cake” as he described was the packaging. A custom wooden box is the home for the pair of 3s with “VNL” found inside the wings logo on the lid, Nguyen-Long’s initials are also found on the custom lace deubrés. The bottom of the box contains the name of his co-workers which are lasered in. “A beautiful memorial to the best damn team in the world” - Victor Nguyen-Long
