To start the Fall season in the right manner, we teamed up with Interscope Records and Vans for a special Backyard BBQ Party with special performances from Mike Will, Two-9, Rae Sremmurd, and OG Macco. Take a look bellow at a recap photos from the event.
Last week we teamed up with adidas Originals to celebrate the release of our SL Loop Runner “Independent Currency” shoe. Set to sounds from DJ Don Cannon, our Moreland Avenue location was transformed with full-sized adidas window displays and real $2 bills in the floor. With a sold-out RSVP list and a line out the door, the guests who arrived early were given a chance to buy the shoes before anyone else and received a free tee with purchase. Quenching the thirst of the attendees, a full bar was provided featuring beverages by D’usse and Dos Equis. Along with an animated photo booth by Smilebooth and an appearance by the $2 Bill Man himself, Steven Reisman, the store was filled with all of the support the city had to offer. Take a look at the images from the event below:
Taking place yesterday, MMG rapper Wale celebrated the release of his upcoming album “The Gifted” with an in-store Meet n’ Greet at Wish. The store was packed as fans, shoppers, and even Trinidad James gathered to hangout, shake hands, or get a signature or picture taken with Ralph himself. Wale, a well known sneaker collector, also took the chance to sign a few sneakers among promotional posters for the upcoming project. So take a look at the images of the event below and be on the lookout for “The Gifted” in stores June 25th!
Last Friday, we released our highly anticipated KAWS x Wish tee to a packed house. KAWS, Brian Donnelly, was in our building signing autographs on everything from his Hennessy collaborative bottle to dollar bills. Overall, the event was a huge success. We are happy so many of you had the opportunity to meet the internationally respected artist. We hope you had as much fun attending as we did throwing this event. We still have a couple t-shirts left here at the shop, so stop by and grab one or call 404.880.0402 Ext.2 to place a phone order. Also, make sure you stop by the High Museum of Art to check out his newest exhibit which kicks off February 16th.
In just about 2 hours, Wale himself will be dropping by our Moreland Ave. shop to hand out free tickets to his Tabernacle, Atlanta, GA show tonight. No… we did not stutter….free tickets to tonights show. From Wale. Free. He’ll also be kicking it for a little while with whoever wants to stop by and chop it up. Don’t miss this. Take your lunch break. Call your ride. Step onto MARTA… do whatever you have to do to be here at 3:00PM today.
The launch event for the Vans x Wish Sophie release was an extreme success. Thanks to everyone who came out and a special thanks for 335MM and Greg Mike and the whole ABV Atlanta Gallery Crew for letting us crash the place.

Well, we’ve had a busy past week up here at the shop. Two weekends ago was the No Brakes and Mishka Bike Race event. The Monday after Married to the MOB stopped by and threw a dope Pop-Up shop. And then, needless to say, the Final Warehouse Sale this past weekend was just crazy. We’ll be posting up pics from the last couple events through the day.
First up is the Mishka x Wish x No Brakes event pics. The Bike race, which was sponsored by Pabst Blue Ribbon [more]and a slew of other bicycle gear companies, was amazing. It kicked off at No Brakes and took contestants through various stops throughout the city. The goal was to complete all the objectives (such as chugging a beer) at each stop and make it to the end as soon as possible. Margaritas were served at the Wish stop and the guys had a chance to kick it with the whole Wish staff and chop it up for a few minutes before hitting the road again. In order to win the race, contestants had to choose from a select handful of designs and get it tattoed on them from either Ink & Dagger or Memorial Tattoo. That’s intense. Follow the jump for all the pics.
Free Food and Beer? Of course.
It was good to see a diverse crowd among the contestants. We saw a mesh of No Brakes customers as well as some Wish homeys.
I think it stayed on his helmet the whole race…
Those shoes look familiar…
As the people started to arrive at Wish a good crowd started developing throughout the night at Wish.
This was by far one the best things we saw throughout the night. No, it was not open…
