An Exploration of Her Ritual (HER RITUAL), is an exhibition focused on the exploration and celebration of the rituals practiced by women of color.
HER RITUAL features twenty-three (23) new and original works created by Atlanta-based artists, photographers, designers and filmmakers, focused on the mystery and normalcy of feminal rituals. Each woman explores a ritual through the lens of personal, cultural and familial traditions, as well as non-traditional, modern rituals. Each work incorporates photography as a connective thread reinforcing the rawness and authenticity of each ritual. The opening will include interactive elements, inviting guests to also engage in on-site rituals. Our community continues to help make the gallery opening a success! With a line passed the gallery and around the corner, we can say we had a packed house! The feedback and interaction with the art/artists was positive and so empowering.

Coming off the successful drop on May13th, we will have a small restock of the Climacool’s. This iconic, early 21st century runner is currently enjoying a real renaissance. This time it is made translucent and, as its counterpart, luminescent. Similar to the PureBOOST, a new Primeknit fiber processing is applied that results in a geometricpatterned upper. As well as an outstanding product, it is a great example of adidas returning to an archive model and giving a type of contemporary rework impossible at the time of the Climacool’s initial conception.
Sneakerboy’s stores are all situated on the Australian Coast so the retailer looked to the sea for inspiration and began exploring aesthetic references to the box jellyfish, the world’s deadliest jellyfish. Its translucency and luminescence were the starting point for the collaborative design process. Even though native to the Australian waters, Wish – by chance – also knew of this particular jellyfish: the Georgia Aquarium is one of only four institutions in the world which houses the specimen. A great coincidence and exceptional link between these two partners.
This past Saturday Atlanta gathered at Wish ATL for the launch of the Adidas Consortium x Wish x Sneakerboy collaboration. The store was transformed into an under the sea experience – the sneaker room was a glow in the dark ocean oasis and upstairs, a jellyfish installation greeted everyone as they made their way into the store. We also had DJ Don Cannon bring the sound, creating an awesome vibe. As a token of our appreciation, the first 100 people who bought sneakers were gifted with a special edition glow in the dark sneaker pin that mimicked our collab shoe which was super dope. Thank you to everyone who came out and check out the photos below!
We are happy to announce that we have teamed up with Sneakerboy in Australia for the Adidas Consortium Sneaker Exchange program to create glow in the dark editions of the PureBOOST & ClimaCOOL, inspired by the worlds deadliest jellyfish. The pack will release at Wish & Sneakerboy on May 13th In-store & Online. Stay tuned for more info.
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
