LeBron 15 Pop-Up Shoe Store Downtown

So while out for a meeting downtown I ran into my friend DJ Steph Floss. I was actually having a lunch meeting and catching up my friend Salona.  As Steph walked over I introduced him the two. See Salona didn’t know who DJ Steph Floss was, so we found that to be a little funny. After sharing what brought Salona to Cleveland from South Africa, Steph shared with her his story and that he was the official DJ for the Cavs. Most importantly he talked about his foundation and how he had just left two local schools, he shared a few pictures, and with excitement explained how happy he was to surprise them with a concert and pizza party. We chatted for awhile about kids, marriage, jobs and ended the conversation with Steph inviting Salona to attend an event during his upcoming Steph Floss Weekend (FYI- if you’re looking for something to do this weekend, I suggest you click the link and see all that he has planned).

Funny enough while leaving lunch our paths crossed again as I headed back to my office. I suggested Steph and my friend Salona take a picture on the street. Lo and behold we were right in front of the Lebron 15 Pop-Up Shoe Store. It started as Steph stating let’s get the logo in the background, but of course we ended up inside. I remembered seeing pictures on social media of Lebron and Kevin Love a few days ago in this store but didn’t know where exactly it was. Truth be told I didn’t know what to expect or what would be inside. I assumed it would be a mini Nike store but I was completely wrong.

First, the store was super cool! There are these cool strings with rocks hanging from the ceiling in the middle of the store, not sure what they are called but it was floating artwork (check the picture above). It had dark walls and the only visuals are the shoes and pictures of Lebron. The pictures were great images of Lebron, dark and very bold but what I loved most, as quote collector, was the saying on the wall that really stood out. It read:

If I Believed The Hype, I Wouldn’t Be Chasing The Greatest.

If The Hadn’t Tried To Reduce Me To Ashes, I Wouldn’t Know That I Can Rise From Them.

If They Hadn’t Doubted My Hometown Pride, I Wouldn’t Have Been So Driven To Fulfill My Promise.

If They Never Tried To Break Me, I wouldn’t Know That I I’m Unbreakable.

Great quote right?!

So the name of the shoe is Unbreakable, and that quote was a great way to explain where the name came from. It totally makes sense  and would explain….what I found MOST interesting!  That’s literally the only one shoe sold in the entire store LOL go figure the Lebron 15. It does however come in 3 different color options and each wall was dedicated to one color, Ghost (beige), Ashes (black and gray) and Pride of Ohio (rose gold and black). On the back wall you could find a few T-shirts and Cavs jerseys, but the store is all about the shoes.

After doing some research (on Cleveland.com) , I found out this shoe is a new version of Lebron’s Flyknit technology, a popular feature on Nike running shoes. Long story short, this new iteration of the shoe is built specifically for Lebron. The store is open until Sunday October 22nd and is on the corner of East 9th and Euclid, next to the Kimpton Hotel. Soooo if you’re in the downtown area, or just want to see what it looks like in person I suggest you stop in, look around and purchase the $185 tennis shoe if you’d like! I’ll be honest I didn’t purchase the shoe but I regret not doing so. I didn’t want my sons or husbands to feel left out LOL and I I’m not sure if they even come in my size!

Anywho.. if you pop in this weekend be sure to tell them you read about the store on #CourtneyCoversCleveland

  • So this is me at work yesterday just fine at #22weekspregnant lol. I received a few messages for which I greatly appreciate the concern, but people work while pregnant all the time. I actually really enjoy working and as many of you know,  it’s hard for me to sit still. I started  freelancing for ESPN/ABC in 2007 so I’ve actually worked for them every pregnancy that I’ve had with all 3 of my boys sooo... during Monday Night Football, College Football/Basketball, NBA games, NBA finals and more. Walking is healthy lol and i do a lot of that on game days. My body will certainly tell me when it’s time to scale back but I’m pretty sure I have a few months in me. Besides that, I have the best work family ever and they go above and beyond to make sure that I’m fine! Tired at times... but good! #LetMeLive #LetMeWorkLOL #WeAreFeelingGreat #WorkingWhilePregnant
  • Who would’ve thought two neighbors in 5th grade, crazy about ropes of thunder would grow up to marry cousins!

You’ve made my job sooooo easy and I truly love you like my own. It’s been such a pleasure watching you grow up over the years and  I’m excited for all that’s in store for your future. Thanks for being the best big brother to Pauly and finding the patience to play with Bryce- I know you’ll be great to your sister as well. You are an awesome son and I’m so blessed to be your bonus mom! I’m hoping to get better just in time for your party lol #HappyBirthdaySon
  • And at #5monthspregnant turns out baby girl and I are sick with pneumonia not strep throat. I was super scared when I talked to the doctor and I regret not asking more questions (FYI- ALWAYS ask questions). I’ll be calling back tomorrow for sure, but in the meantime we are home resting, taking our meds and  focused on getting better. It’s so hard for me to rest but I’m definitely doing it! Baby girl is moving so it’s bringing me much comfort as I lay here confined to the couch and bed urghhh #IHateBeingSick
