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

  • Now I may not believe (in my heart lol) that we are ranked 48 out of 50 but what I do believe is that CLEVELAND has to do a better job (like Marsha who I love Mockabee, says in this article) in SUPPORTING LOCAL BUSINESSES! That’s where we fall short and other cities excel! .
.

This is why I created #courtneycoverscleveland ! The idea is to promote and support what’s here! We will never get ahead if we don’t learn to support each other.
  • Sunday evening I attended the Symphony of Pink and Green Cotillion! It brought back soooo many great memories from when I was an debutante in the first AKA cotillion in 2003. I remember the workshops and community service, the father daughter waltz’s and hilarious dance classes with my escort. It’s an experience every girl should have! I can’t wait for my Codi Lynn to take part. So glad to see my little cousin Jenesis as an APPLE! .

Parents invest in your daughters! Give them experiences that will create lifelong memories and help them grow and mature as young ladies! #courtneycoverscleveland
  • Spent Martin Luther King Jr. Day at the Children’s Museum making memories with #BryceCameron I had a million reasons why I needed to stay home but I literally saw the @shondarhimes book I just finished on my table and said YES! It was the best decision I could’ve made because I committed to spending more one on one time with each of my children. Bryce had the best time ever! This article will be up soon because we had sooo much fun and it’s an easy inexpensive trip for parents to enjoy with their kids! OHHH and yes I’m rocking my OBAMA hoody because I what better  day than today to rock it! #courtneycoverscleveland
  • I was literally in New Orleans last weekend and had Papa John's Pizza! I saw this commercial and it has completely changed my way of thinking! As a local blogger in Cleveland, everything I do is to promote the city and hope to make an impact in the community. Those who follow me understand how passionate I am about  supporting small businesses. Prior to this commercial I would have never included restaurant chains, however after watching this now I will!
.
Hats off to Herb and Kenyatta, African-American franchisees in New Orleans, for making a difference in their community, and to Papa John's for sharing their story. The commercial shows the power and impact that small businesses can have on our local communities.

I'm looking for Cleveland franchise owners! I want to meet you and I want to promote and support your business!  #BetterTogether #courtneycoverscleveland #sponsored
  • I truly believe in supporting great #Cleveland businesses! I couldn’t let today’s special (although I should be on a diet) pass me by... this is hands down a #courtneycoverscleveland Favorite!

I’ve honestly been supporting @blackboxfix @latoya_lavise since 2014 when my then fiancé and I would eat Neveah. If you scroll to the right you will see our first meal back in the states after our honeymoon was at Neveah- we craved it after being in St. Lucia for a week! I actually ordered this same exact meal, my absolute favorite thing to order the buffalo fries! If you haven’t had them they are worth every penny and amazingly delicious (and did I mention reasonable? they cost $12) so if you’re ever in legacy village and want to support a local business choose #TheBlackboxFix they have great options !  #courtneycoversclevelandquickie .

  • When Bryce turned 3 in November he got his first haircut, yesterday 2 months later he got his second haircut. He sat in the chair like a big boy and both him and his barber told me to go away LOL! People always ask who cuts his hair so head over to #Courtneycoverscleveland to read about Cleveland’s Premier Barber, my friend, the busy and always booked @urfavbarber !
