Nike, SNKRS, ATLANTA: The Wait Is Over

As an avid shoe collector and overall connoisseur of sneakers, the time has finally come for ATL to get some real love from Nike. I am a resident of ATL as well so for me to even understand how Atlanta has been overlooked for their since of fashion, style and love of sneakers has been beyond me for the longest. And for Nike to have shown so much love to New York, Los Angeles and occasionally Chicago via SNKRS Pass etc., I’ll admit that I am happy as hell to be a resident of Atlanta right now and extremely happy that the city that brings so much when it comes to the trends being set in what people call the “Culture” gets the well deserved notoriety. This is without question long overdue.

On to the SNKRS pop-up! For about two months Nike has provided a SKRS pop up in Atlanta that will give sneaker enthusiasts and resellers as well a chance to get their hands on some of the hottest releases both past and present. The news about the pop-up for a few people were rather sudden, but for those in the know, it was expected. Either way, the crowd control was going to be tough to handle, especially with the Super Bowl being being in Atlanta this year. The opportunity to make some serious money is certainly there.

February and March are expected to be highly anticipated in the world of sneakers with the final installment of The Ten Off-White collab, NBA All-Star Weekend amongst other pairs. Scheduled to be in Atlanta until March 26th will give plenty of opportunities to stay A-1 in the sneaker game.

Lastly, I want to say it’s about to Nike and also I hope this isn’t a 1 stop shop. The city of Atlanta deserves more exclusives and special drops just like the before named cities. If you’re in the city and would like to stop by the SNKRS pop-up, the address is right below.

Bounce Back Game

What is your bounce back game like?  Like really, how do you react in times of failure, loss, or any of that other bad mess that can happen to you?  The bounce back game must be strong and part of that is faith and belief in yourself.  Understanding that no matter how the cards are dealt or how they play out, you will be good regardless.  You have to believe that if you lost it all, you can get it all back, plus some.  Remember the saying, “you ain’t a boss until you take a loss.”  Well I do believe there is some truth to that.

For myself, I look at failure as lessons learned so I know that once the experienced scenarios come around again I should be able to handle and react differently so that the outcome is a bit different.  There is this Jay Z line that I always go back to time and time again.  “I will not lose for even in defeat there’s a valuable lesson learned so that evens it up for me.”  And since then that is exactly how I have approached life.  When things don’t turn out for your favor you can mope around about it or you can level up and do better.  For me, the only option is to level up.  Remember, if you lived through it then you have another chance.

This post is something short for those dealing with life’s lessons.  That is what we will call them, not losses, not failures, but life’s lessons.  Always know after a lesson, you are built for this shit!
