Posted by Michael Kusumadjaja on October 5, 2012 in Events Product

Today was an eventful day at the store as we joined with Reebok to give our customers a little something extra for the release of the Reebok Pearlized Blue Question. Those who patiently waited were rewarded with refreshments provided by Chick-fil-a, give-aways from Reebok, and a preview of our Reebok collaboration “American Fun” Pong Sneaker to add to their experience of being one of the few to walk away with this release. Check out some images of the festivities below:

Wish x Reebok “American Fun” Pong Pack

Posted by Michael Kusumadjaja on October 5, 2012 in Events Product 5 Comments

Paying homage to good old fashioned “American Fun” Wish ATL has decided to collaborate with Reebok on a vibrant special make up of the Pump Omni Lite. Inspired by Solo, the official party cup company and the American made game “beer pong,” this red to the ground and beer patterned sock liner colorway is sure to spark excitement in party animals across the world!

The game “beer pong,” evolved from the traditional game played with paddles. Which is generally regarded to have had its origins within the fraternities of Dartmouth College in the 1950s and 1960s. The original version resembled an actual ping pong game with a net and one or more cups of beer on each side of the table. Eventually, a version without paddles was created, and later the name Beer Pong was adopted in the 1980s.

The Wish x Reebok “American Fun” Pump Omni Lite will be available at our Moreland Ave location and on our site on October 13 for $150 USD before hitting additional spots one on October 20.

Ewing Sneaker Release Piece by Piece: Handpicked by Frank

Posted by Michael Kusumadjaja on September 28, 2012 in Events Product

The 1980s gave birth to the signature basketball shoe as many players received their own shoe model from companies, and in 1989 Patrick Ewing took it one step further, becoming the first professional basketball player to have his own shoe company, Ewing Athletics. The first main release from the company was the 33 HI. This shoe would go on to become a huge seller and a street staple in NYC. In the 2000′s as the Internet Age dawned, there became a huge online cult following and demand increased for vintage Ewing shoes from all over the world and in 2012 Patrick has relaunched Ewing Athletics.

So In honor of the return of this historic shoe, our very own Frank Cooke took the time to piece together a nice outfit to go along with your new Ewing sneakers. Check out and click the items below to see price and other information. The Ewing 33 Hi will be available here at Wish this Saturday. Phone orders will be welcome on this sneaker after 5:00PM EST on the day of the release by calling 404.880.0402 ext #2.

UPDATE: Sold Out! – Burn Rubber x Reebok Question “Apollos Young”

Posted by Michael Kusumadjaja on September 7, 2012 in Events Product

Detroit’s Burn Rubber has put a new and creative spin on the classic Iverson sneaker for their latest Reebok collaboration. But the drastic change in colorway isn’t the only interesting thing about this shoe. Check out what Burn Rubber had to say about the story behind the “Apollos Young”:

The reason you may’ve never heard of Apollos Young is because he never played one second of A professional NBA game. His new found “fast life” turned this nice little Christian boy, into a certified Rockstar. A.Y. Went from a clean cut, sweater vest wearing schoolboy to a tattooed, baggy shorts wearing womanizer with a no holds barred attitude during the preseason. It started with the double cup lean sipping instead of the Gatorade that his teammates used for refreshments. A.Y. is on record for being the first player to ever smoke a black & mild during a game. Although, as a 14 year man child, he averaged 48.7 pts, 23.3 rebs, & 0.1 assts, the line was drawn in his last preseason game. You see, the inquiry was known to wear his cell phone on him during the game, but no one could ever think that he would take it to the level that he took it. Alot of his antics were swept under the rug because of his superior skill level. One thing that couldn’t go unnoticed, was his last time on an NBA court.

This collab will be available in-store at our Moreland Avenue shop on Saturday 8 and will be released on a first-come, first-served basis. Phone orders will be welcome after 5:00PM EST on the day of the release by calling 404.880.0402 ext #2. Make sure to get here early, because like the career of Apollos Young, this release will be over quick.
