Sneaker Stores Close in Protest of Police Brutality

The country is again on edge, with the recent events around the country. Shootings have happened in Kenosha, Baton Rouge, and Lafayette, and we are in an uproar demanding change and action. The NBA and WNBA have protested and boycotted games and now, sneaker shops are following suit.

Notable shops like Sneaker Politics, Kith, and others have decided to close up shop, in response to these tragic events. They are using this time to discuss a process of change and register customers to vote and take action. The movement was organized by one of the sneaker shops owners. This is a huge moment and shows that the sneaker community is all in for justice.

What's good all! My name is Reggie Jackson II and I'm from Baton Rouge, LA. I have been collecting sneakers since 2010 and been writing since 2012. My favorite sneakers are the Jordan 2, Jordan 14, and the Air Max 1. I hoop in my spare time (and anytime I can) and any Kobe is my go to on the court. Rise Grind and Buy Sneakers.
