I was invited to attend the private launch celebration of the Air Jordan 30 and if you know me, you know I love my sneakers so attending this event was a definite must for me! Jordans were actually my first sneakers that started up my collection back in 2000.
The event took place at the SNKRSXPRESS pop up shop in Santa Monica, CA., which literally a week ago, that exact location was just Kitson. Nike turned that place around so quick and made it into the ultimate sneaker shop. The Santa Monica (Los Angeles) location was one of the four SNKRS XPRESS pop up shops during All-Star Weekend with the others being in New York, Chicago and of course Toronto, where the All-Star game will be held at.
I noticed the shop on Tuesday while attending Nike Run Club and tried to register online the next day but all 4 days were full so I told myself it just wasn't meant to be. Fast forward to an hour later, I receive an email inviting me to the AJ 30 Launch Event AT Snkrs Xpress. I was so stoked!
I was allowed to bring a +1 so of course, I decided to bring my sister Lindsay along with me. Inside the event, you were able to purchase select Jordan sneakers since the focus of the event was specifically Jordan. One of the jays up for grabs were Cement 4s that drop Saturday, but unfortunately, it was only mens sizes :( The rest of the days that the pop up shop is up for, you are able to get both Jordan and Nike sneakers.
Overall, it was a really great experience. It was nice to see some familiar faces and also have the opportunity to meet a couple new ones.
