The Miami Heat Are Teaming Up With The Shoe Surgeon To Release Ultra Exclusive ‘Vice’ Air Jordan 1’s
The Miami Heat “Vice” jerseys have been a hit ever since they were announced in January. The jerseys have been so popular that they have been pretty hard to come by especially with the return of Dwyane Wade to the team.

According to ESPN Sports Business Reporter Darren Rovell, the team has received orders from more than 100 countries in the first 15 hours after putting Wade’s Vice Jersey on sale at 5 p.m. Wednesday. Team merchandise sales, Rovell said, are up 8,000 percent from the previous two days.
“We’ve been working through the night making jerseys,” said Eddie Abad, senior manager of retail operations at the Miami Heat Store inside AmericanAirlines Arena. “And we’ll have them ready when the doors open up tonight at 6:30 p.m.
“[As for the Vice Jerseys] we’re working with Nike to get them as soon as possible.”
Now the Heat are stepping up a notch and have teamed up with Dominic Chambrone aka The Shoe Surgeon to release an ultra exclusive “Vice” inspirte Air Jordan’s. Unfortunately the shoes won’t be sold but instead will only be available through an online auction.
