We enjoyed having the borrowed truss structure for our booth at Style X so much that we decided to buy ourselves one for our 2nd birthday as a brand. Having this booth will allow us the flexibility to set up a 10′ x 10′ x 10′ space or a 15′ x 5′ x 10′ space; both will allow us to showcase our gear in a professional way. Hooray!

I’m a huge fan of Air Jordan sneakers, but usually my fandom is limited to retro models that MJ actually wore on court or signature models such as the CP3.IV. That being said, I tend to ignore many Team Jordan models. Once in awhile however, Jordan Brand releases a shoe that catches my attention; and that’s exactly what they did this week with the release of the Jordan Phase 23 Hoops Joe Johnson PE‘s. Perhaps I’m all ears because they have something to do with my beloved Atlanta Hawks? Perhaps, it’s because the heel strap that reminds me of the Air Jordan IV (one of my favorites)? Or maybe it’s because the forefoot strap reminds me of Nike Air Trainers from the Bo Jackson days? More likely than not, it’s a combination of all 3 of these reasons.
This is a shoe that I can see myself wearing at Philips Arena while cheering on our Hawks. Truth be told, Joe Johnson is a quieter player and doesn’t get any national shine. So it’s difficult as an Atlanta Hawks fan to want to wear a Melo shoe or DWade shoe (they are our rivals). It’s awesome to see that Jordan Brand is releasing something I can truly back 100%.
Supposedly Joe Johnson will be wearing these in the 2nd round of the playoffs, but I didn’t see them on his feet during Game 1 in Chicago. Perhaps we’ll see them tonight!
