For years, shoes have been a symbol of your status. It wasn't until Nike signed Michael Jordan before his rookie season with the Bulls that sneakers became a phenomenon in pop culture. Until then, it was dress shoes. Basketball players all wore the same shoes, if they were signed to companies like Adidas or Converse. After the release of the Air Jordan 1, the rest has been history.

For sneaker-heads in the Tri-Cities and Columbia Basin, you're only hope for finding exclusive limited "drops" is online re-sellers. But fear not!

There's a new store in town that's part of the game. Check out Showtime Shoes in Walla Walla.

They've even got Yeezy's, Off White Air Jordan 1's. Plus vintage swag like Starter jackets and vintage Ichiro baseball cards from his time in Japan.
