Anthony Davis has already proved why he is one of the best players in the world. Davis finally has an NBA ring to his name after a tremendous first season with the Lakers.
While Davis is super aggressive on the court, off the court he is quite the opposite. AD partnered up with eBay to launch a virtual ‘Santa Sneaker Drop’. Participants will have 5 chances a day to test their luck to win a total of 500 pairs of sneakers.
Interested participants just need to access the ‘Santa Sneaker Drop’ website. They can use it via an iOS or an Android device where they can participate with the help of augmented reality.
They will experience it through their mobile devices by opening a virtual sneaker box. The box will fall down a chimney and it will reveal whether the participant has won or not.
But AD is not done yet. He had another surprise up his sleeve for his fans.
Along with eBay, the Brow has partnered up with Soles4Soles as well. Where AD and eBay will donate a total of 40,000 pairs of shoes to Soles4Soles.
“I always wanted to try & get all the latest sneakers as a kid. Why not try to do the same thing for kids in need, especially in my hometown Chicago & where I’m playing at now in LA.”
This is a very kind gesture on Davis’ part for kids that dream to wear these rare sneakers. In a statement, Davis revealed this is a once in a lifetime opportunity for him to do something like this.
“I never imagined having a chance to team up with the greatest big man of all time, and I’m grateful that eBay has given me this once in a lifetime opportunity to work with Santa this holiday.
“Sneakers are at the top of millions of wish lists this year, and we’re hoping to make holiday dreams come true for sneakerheads across the country.”
