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.
