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

  • My boys are out here in Vegas playing hard!!! Took some tough L’s both one game away from the championship but still playing for 3rd place. #jamonit #westcoastnationals  #aaubasketball #ginnelite #ginnelitebasketball
  • #transparentwednesday last week we celebrated our anniversary unlike the ones before. We weren’t on a trip alone, we were in Florida with our entire family... thanks to our friends KY and Ted we were able to sneak away at night to celebrate! If you saw my IG story you know we had a ball, I mean partied like two college kids- drinking and singing having a good time! It was what we needed! I believe all couples need trips alone - to reconnect and refresh- and most importantly not focus on the kids but each other! We commit to doing this for our anniversary every year for a week but due to Codi pushed it back. So in the meantime- date nights and any time alone is important to me. This picture is me a little insecure about my body two months post baby, not having a flat stomach or back to my ideal weight... but enjoying my life in the moment with this human being I chose to marry. It’s not hard being a new mom- or mom to 4 but it’s challenging to make sure while you make each day about your kids you also make each day about your partner! Living and learning to balance it the best way I  can... #imtrying #notperfect #momlife #wifelife #happyanniversary #marriedcouple #blacklove #husbandandwife #datenight
  • #MCM all my boys!!!! We had a great week long family vacation in Florida! It was the first time traveling with our entire family of 6 so I encountered for the first time the challenge of flying with 2 under 2, carrying around 2 car seats, a double stroller, a purse, a breast pump, a diaper bag and luggage! Thanks to my @graco #gracoreadytogrow double stroller and my @ergobaby carrier for the assist throughout the airport and trip! It was a challenge but we made it and everyone had a great time! #familyvacation #familyof6 #travelingwithkids #doublestroller

For all of you so eager to call it quits and throw in the towel on your relationships because everything isn’t “perfect”...here is some food for thought. Lifelong commitment is not what most people think it is. It's not waking up every morning to make breakfast and eat together. It's not cuddling in bed until both of you fall asleep, peacefully, at night. It's not a clean home filled with laughter and lovemaking, everyday. It's someone who steals all the covers. It's slammed doors and a few harsh words, at times. It’s stubbornly disagreeing and giving each other the silent treatment until your hearts heal...and, then...FORGIVENESS! It’s coming home to the same person, everyday, that you know LOVES and CARES about you in spite of (and because of) who you are. It's laughing about the one time you accidentally did something stupid. It's about dirty laundry and unmade beds. It's about helping each other with the hard work of life! It's about swallowing the nagging words instead of saying them out loud. It's about eating the cheapest and easiest meal you can make and sitting down together at late night to eat because you both had a crazy day. It's when you have an emotional breakdown and your Love lays with you and holds you and tells you everything is going to be okay...and you BELIEVE them. It's about still loving someone even though, sometimes, they make you absolutely insane. Living with the person you love is not perfect... sometimes it's hard; but it's amazing and comforting and one of the BEST things you'll ever experience! .

So Happy Anniversary @crewcamp_bo  cheers to 4 years of ups, downs and in betweens! #happyanniversary #happyanniversarytous #husbandandwife #blessed #blacklove #boandcowedding #marriage #marriedlife #marriageadvice #realtalk #reallove
