Wish for Kicks

Posted by Julie Hogg on December 1, 2016 in Events

Wish ATL is launching a new charity initiative this month called #wishforkicks. We are collecting donations all month to turn those dollars into sneakers to give away to the teens from Chris180.org. Chris180 serves youth ages 6-17 in foster care who have emotional challenges stemming from trauma, as well as 18-24 year olds that are “aging out” of the foster care system and need help to get on their feet. Our goal is to provide a pair of sneakers from Wish for each child & teen in the organization for the Holidays.

Wish ATL has teamed up with a number of celebrities to help launch the program. Their generous donations helped us jump start this terrific campaign

A very special thanks to Kenny Burns, Josh Childress, Jermaine Dupri, David Fizdale, Jarrett Jack, K. Camp, Lloyd, Tyronn Lue, Lotto 7, Rayven Justice, Renaldo Nehemiah, Sammie, Shannon Sharpe, Josh Smith, Steve Smith, Greg Street, and T.I.

Stop in Wish today  to make a donation and help us grant a #wishforkicks

The release story was built around MJ and his arrival  to the arena, surrounded by security on his way to get his first ring. We helped tell that story for the release day. The 1991 Ferrari was parked out front, security was in place, and fans and customers were treated to red carpet and velvet ropes as they entered the building to win their trophy.. in this case, pick up their gold shoes!

Oddity-Luxe-Blog-1

adidas Originals unveils the ‘EQT Oddity Luxe Pack’ – a continuation story around the Oddity design concept revealed in previous years. The adidas Oddity heritage has become a highly-anticipated design concept, hacking traditional design principles through unexpected material and color mash-ups on classic silhouettes. The concept was born out of the development of first-round product samples using scrap materials produced in adidas factories, often featuring different colors and textures. The 2016 ‘EQT Oddity Luxe Pack’ is a refreshed luxe spin on the Oddity design concept, featuring a neutral color palette and a mash-up of premium leather textures. The ‘EQT Oddity Luxe Pack’ is comprised of both a EQT Running Support 93′ for men and a EQT Racing shoe for women. Both silhouettes feature an off-white upper of chalk and tan with copper accents, while elevating the design concept through a premium material mix of snake, ostrich and croc skin leather textures. Look for adidas latest to drop Friday, May 6th.
