The latest WSS location is the culmination of a major $5M renovation and design project which has revived a historical landmark formerly known as Young's Market Building. Inside the store definitely worth checking out is the "23 Steps to Immortality" museum-like display showcasing all of the actual Jordan shoes. These are numbered 1 through 23 with a special explanation of each shoe and the legendary accomplishments that Michael Jordan achieved while wearing each pair.

WSS is a home-grown Los Angeles retail store success story, transitioning over the last 30 years from being a small neighborhood vendor. Eric Alon, founder and CEO of the chain, started out back in 1984 selling shoes out of the trunk of his car evolving into one of LA's top footwear retail powerhouse companies. The store offers customers a huge selection of value-priced clothing as well as athletic, dress, fashion and casual footwear for the entire family both for kids and adults including highly desirable brands such as Nike, Jordan, Vans, Converse, Adidas, Puma, Skechers and their own quality private brands.
Currently the brand has more than 67 locations in the Southland in Los Angeles and Orange County as well as in Las Vegas, Neveda and they're in the process of building out 23 Jordan "Shine on LA" concept shops within the stores with eight of these concept shops already open including the new LA flagship downtown location. The concept shops pay special homage to the Jordan athletes that have ties to the Los Angeles area including Chris Paul and Blake Griffin (both of the LA Clippers) and Russell Westbrook (Long Beach, Lawndale & UCLA).
