UNITY… U.N.I.T.Y YOU GOTTA LET THEM KNOW!!!
Ok sorry where was I… yes the Power Circle of some very well respected male and female Sneakerheads in the game and the circle was straight Fire!!! I mean you had the good dude The Word On The Feet with Ronnie Fieg’s 1st Asics collaboration, you had Van Wills in Kid Robot AM1s, Kambition in the Patta AM1 I mean it was straight Fire… It was a very refreshing selection of different trainers and not your typical Jordans or Huaraches… I mean it was a very serious circle!! And me being the King I went HAM!!! I posted it tagged everyone who was present in it… Then I thought this circle is way too good for just us so I had to tag possibly every relevant magazine or sneaker blog/brand in the UK & US.
But I have to admit I felt a bit like “what’s going on?” ’cause firstly the King’s picture didn’t branch over 200 likes, shootouts to FreshLaces and Solelove1 for winning that silent comp for who got the most likes, lol the Kingdom let me down on that… Also that picture was posted around 11 more times throughout Instagram with full tags etc from members of the circle… But I couldn’t help but notice that not one of the “Sneaker influencer” brands reposted the picture even though they clearly state that people should tag them or use their hashtag and they would post??? But they didn’t and this wasn’t just UK brands/influencers it was US as well, which tbh in my opinion it shows that either the picture wasn’t “Good Enough” or people didn’t think there was enough heat in the picture ??
Oh Please… I can’t help feeling it was something else I know there weren’t enough Jordans in the picture or Huaraches. Or could it be because it was nick-named the #BlackPowerCircle ? And no I ain’t making this a race thing at all I’m just trying to get to the bottom of this ? And whether people like it or not if you are really in this UK scene you gotta admit there is kinda an elitism in the way brand influencers promote each other…? If I’m wrong tell I’m wrong but have a good explanation ’cause I come with good debate facts Ready!!!
My opinion is Trainers are for everyone the term “Sneakerhead” is not reserved or as the YouTube dude DBrown24 would say “it doesn’t give you any form of influence in any way in the real world”…. but I do think that some people because they may have a certain following or something feel like I will not support anything that doesn’t fit into my box! The King does not care for this in the slightest and will shoutout and support anyone in the UK game that does something dope or works hard and catches my attention… There is no time for segregating, overlooking, ignoring, etc etc. This here UK trainer game is for us all and if you disagree with that you are gonna be one of the ones who gets left behind as everyone builds together. As I regularly say on my hashtags #TeamWorkMakesTheUKSceneWork !
Shoutout everyone who was in the Power Circle and everyone who supports building together !!
Until the next time keep safe and keep it Kinging!!
