Before Deion Sanders led Jackson State to an 11-1 record, including going an 8-0 SWAC conference undefeat and winning the SWAC Championship Game, Coach Prime put his team on “the game.”

Sanders invited Instagram model and Jackson State alumnus Brittany Renner to speak to Jackson State football players. The goal was to teach them to avoid transactional relationships as they progress through professional sports and non-sports careers.

When Renner was a student at JSU, she helped the football team win a SWAC title in 2010.

The essential difference

Although the reunion took place in October, the video of Sanders and Renner was recently posted on Instagram this week. Renner educated student-athletes on the new rules when the stakes are higher.

LeBron James to Young Dolph to JR Smith to Lil Boosie | Deion Sanders made HBCU Sports & Education a buzzing brand

“Naturally, if you play sports, it’s an incentive to talk to you,” Renner said. “Often women, men in general. Everyone wants something. Even though we have our own thing, it feels like it’s good to be with you because you increase my stock. I boost your stock. It’s so easy.”

Additionally, Renner told the team that his Instagram direct messages are “like a Nike store” full of blue ticks from artists and athletes.

Blue checks everywhere

“It’s like a Nike store — it’s just blue tiles. When you reach a certain status, you can have a choice of scope. I’m talking heavyweight.
“It’s a compromise, but you have to be aware of what you’re signing up for,” she said. “You are trying to make it to the NFL. You understand there’s a lot that comes with that, don’t you? To be able to decipher who really loves you for you, I think that’s the billion dollar question we all want to know.

When you win, accolades come | Deion Sanders Coach Prime Named Eddie Robinson Award Finalist

After raising the profile of HBCU gamers, Sander knows he’s unleashed the world-hunting beast. Bringing in Renner was his version of preemptive preparation for the team.

The Renner Way

From rappers like Drake and Lil Uzi Vert to ballers like James Harden, Jamal Murray, Ben Simmons and Charlotte Hornets player PJ Washington, with whom she has a child, Renner plays the weight game.

PJ Washington took to Twitter to respond to Brenner’s educational platform, which he no doubt appreciated.

Coach Prime took to social media to explain Renner’s reunion.

“It is my responsibility as a coach to prepare my young men for everything on and off the pitch,” Sanders wrote. “I brought in @bundleofbrittany to educate them on how the game is played between men and women at their age and stage. The message may not be for everyone, but believe me, it’s for someone.

On the game

Renner informed the players of the obvious. As their status grows, their visibility and addicts follow.

“Difficult to even get to the bathroom” | Deion Sanders celebrates Jackson State’s perfect ‘Primetime’ SWAC season despite health

“You just have to be aware – no one is here for nothing,” Renner said. “It’s just about knowing who might be there during times of adversity. And you could only know that through adversity. As if you had an injury and couldn’t play for a short time. These are things you are going to have to see for yourself.

For Miami Dolphins fans, there’s no shortage of official Nike gear. Jerseys, hats, t-shirts, socks… you name it and it’s there.

But for our money, the coolest item drops around early fall every year.

Official Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 37 Miami Dolphins sneakers.

Last year, of course, saw the release of the Air Zoom Pegasus 36 sneakers. It was great. Incredibly comfortable and durable, more stylish and elegant. These are some of my favorite shoes (and please note that I bought my own, I didn’t receive a pair from Nike).

This year, some things have changed, but the end result is the same: an incredibly comfortable shoe.

The mesh along the upper part of the shoe makes it breathable (thus keeping your foot cool). The entire shoe will probably weigh less than a pound for most of you (unless you have size 15 or larger feet). In terms of look and style…I mean… Look at them!

Fanatics

Fanatics

These will not only be the perfect addition to your collection, but the perfect look for the rest of the year – and beyond. They will definitely attract attention.

Note: On Fanatics, shoes are listed as unisex sizes. In the past, Nike had released both men’s and women’s versions of the shoes. The company is looking to move away from that, which means there’s a bit more work on the legs (or feet?) to determine your size.

The good news? Just use the table below – which is also available on the product page at Fanatics. You can order yours today for $129.99.

  • Nike offers a wide range of sizes online, but popular colorways sell out fast, especially in the smaller sizes.
  • Men’s and kids’ colorways often overlap, giving those with small feet an extra chance to snag their favorite style in their size.
  • Youth sizes are available up to 7Y, which equals a 7 for men or an 8.5 for women.
  • As a bonus, kids’ sneakers tend to be a bit cheaper than adult versions.
  • Styles like the React Presto, Huarache EDGE TXT, and Air Max 720 are all available for men and kids in identical colorways.

I’m not a sneakerhead at all, but when I see something I like I tend to get a little obsessed until I own it.

So when I saw a certain color of Nike Air Max 97‘s, I knew I had to have them, but Nike was sold out in my size. I wear a women’s size 8, which is equivalent to a men’s size 6.5. In my experience, Nikes run half a size small, so I always end up with a men’s 7. I tend to shop in the men’s department because women’s colorways are never so cool. Why Nike doesn’t offer the same colorways in both departments has always baffled me.

Online, Nike offers men’s sizes up to size 3.5 (equivalent to a women’s 5) and up to size 15 (equivalent to a women’s 16.5). But the extreme sizes sell out fast because they make so few pairs, which happened in the case of my Air Max 97s. I was distraught that I missed this colorway, so I spent days googling , hoping to find them on Footlocker or Zappos or some resale site at a price that wasn’t ridiculous.

What I ended up discovering was a hack that changed the way I shop for sneakers.

Nike doesn’t always make the men’s colorways in women’s sizes, but they do sometimes make them in “Big Kids” sizes. And adults buying kids’ shoes isn’t something Nike discourages. In fact they have a size chart available that helps you convert children’s sizes to men’s and women’s sizes. This is great for people with small feet that lack their size in the adult version. It’s often the exact same shoe with perhaps a minor variation in detail here and there.

As a bonus, you’ll often end up saving at least $20 by switching from men to kids. You’re essentially getting a discount on the almost exact same shoe, which more than makes up for the extra effort you put in to grab them in the best colors. For example, right now the React Presto are available for both men ($120) and older kids ($100) in two overlapping colorways, just like the Huarache EDGE TXT (men’s and the big kids) and the Air Max 720 (men and Big kids’). These are just a few examples, but there are tons of examples of this on Nike’s website, so if your favorite colorway is sold out in your size and you have small feet, do your due diligence and check out the children’s section.

Nike just did.

The Beaverton, Oregon-based sports company has opened the doors of its highly anticipated latest store in downtown Detroit to the public with a swoosh.

“We are Nike, we are fun,” a crowd of Nike store workers dressed in black T-shirts chanted and cheered as they greeted customers who had meandered down the block waiting to enter. They sang lyrics that blended the sports brand with the city. , and touted how, Nike is now “in the D.”

Look:Detroit Nike store staff sing to crowd ‘We’re Nike, we’re fun’
Related: Nike store could bring other major retailers to downtown Detroit

But more than just a store opening, it suggested that downtown Detroit is on the verge of a retail renaissance, and that billionaire businessman Dan Gilbert – who bought and renovated downtown buildings – may persuade other national retailers to invest in Detroit as it recovers from bankruptcy and decades of economic strife.

Nike, recognized around the world as an athletic apparel and footwear retailer, calls its 22,000-square-foot, two-level athletic store at 1261 Woodward a community store.

From the street, it’s hard to miss the orange, Nike swoosh and banners on the side of the historic FW Woolworth Co. building near what will soon be the new hockey arena.

Inside, there are rows of shelves covered in shoes and clothes racks – some already on sale – for men, women and children, and an area with computer screens for online shopping too. The store is decorated with images of Detroit sports venues and a unique store slogan: Detroit never stops.

At least 80% of the employees – the company declined to disclose the total number of people who worked there – live within an 8 km radius, the company said.

The store also aims to offer eight grants of $5,000 to nonprofit groups.

Dennis van Oossanen, Nike’s vice president for North America Retail, said the new store was the company’s latest commitment to Michigan, calling Detroit a “special and important community” and noting that the new store would be involved in the local community.

So far, the apparel and footwear maker has only opened six more community stores nationwide, in revitalizing areas such as New Orleans, South Chicago and East Los Angeles.

Nike already has what it calls factory outlets in Auburn Hills, Birch Run, Grand Rapids and Howell.

Nike’s Community Stores aim to promote active lifestyles, events and work with community organizations that also do so. The Nike store plans to award eight grants of $5,000 each year to nonprofit groups.

Gilbert’s Bedrock Real Estate Services, which owns the store space, expects Nike to help attract other retailers to downtown.

Retailers that have opened on a stretch of Woodward between Campus Martius and Grand Circus Park include high-end menswear store John Varvatos and outdoor clothing and equipment store Moosejaw.

Bob Kraemer of the Kraemer Design Group in Detroit envisions Woodward Avenue bustling with shops.

“But don’t expect to see a Gap store or an American Eagle, or any other retailer you’re more likely to see on Chicago’s Magnificent Mile,” Kraemer predicted. “Downtown will more likely be the new home of retailers recognizing and valuing the Detroit brand – the slightly quirky national brands and the more forward-thinking, trendier and more enterprising brands and retailers, both regionally and nationally. “

As customers walked through the doors this morning, they were surrounded by cheering employees and greeted like athletes entering the field.

The first 200 shoppers received free in-ear headphones and $10 store gift cards.

Maurice Young, the first guy in line, said he had been standing at the door since 2 p.m. Wednesday. The 38-year-old Detroiter wore a Pistons cap and collects Jordan shoes. He said he had over 30 pairs and was looking for the perfect ones.

“I’m here just to get a chance to see what they have,” he said, leading a long line of customers. “It’s so good for the city. It’s been a long time coming.”

Later in the store, he grabbed two shoeboxes, deciding to buy Air Jordan 11 Retros, which retailed for $129.99, or Air Foamposite Pros, which cost a bit more, $159.99. .

Some shoe styles, Nike reps confirmed, are hard to find.

Meanwhile, Michigan State University basketball coach Tom Izzo strolled through the store, posing for photos, shaking hands and hanging out with customers.

Some of the people who lined up were fans – and alumni – of the school and the coach.

Jack Custer, 65, of Chesterfield Township stood in line wearing his alumni Spartan gear with his daughter, also a Spartan, and granddaughter, who he said was a future Spartan, and his wife, who admitted she didn’t attend MSU but was wearing gear anyway.

Izzo was also there before the store opened for a private event.

“For me, I think it helps this whole revitalization,” the coach said of the new store, “You’ve just brought another great company to a city that’s really starting to find itself. It’s going to bring people – and class.”

As a bonus, there was no University of Michigan merchandise in the store.

Although, eventually there will be some after Michigan’s contract with Adidas expires in July.

Nike Store

Nike has opened its first community store in Michigan. The community store concept aims to support volunteerism and create positive experiences through physical activity for youth and others in the community. The first community store opened in Portland, Oregon. Other community stores are in New Orleans; Chicago; Brooklyn, New York; Washington DC and East Los Angeles.

After months of speculation and anticipation, the Nike Detroit Community Store is open.

The line of people waiting to enter the new store went down Woodward, past Moosejaw, and around the corner to Grand River. Exact numbers weren’t available, but many turned out to see Michigan State basketball coach Tom Izzo as well as the store opening.

“Sport is the cornerstone of our state’s pride,” said Michigan State University head coach and Basketball Hall of Famer Tom Izzo. “Fostering early, positive experiences with physical activity is incredibly important for young adults, which is why I’m thrilled to welcome Nike to the city of Detroit.”

This is the seventh Nike Community Store in the United States; there are locations in Portland, Washington DC, New Orleans, East Los Angeles and the Brooklyn borough of New York.

Community stores differ from Nike retail stores in four different ways. Community store employees who live within a five-mile radius of the store make up 80% of their staff. They also award $5,000 grants to eight local nonprofits each year. The company also focuses on volunteering in the community to bring positive ideas about physical activity.

The last thing we focus on is making the community store reflect the city they are in. From the mural on the wall to Detroit apparel and sports team apparel, they aimed to take everything into consideration.

“By expanding Nike’s community store concept to include local grant programs, we look forward to fostering even deeper connections that empower young leaders where our store teams live and work,” said Dennis van Oossanen, vice president and general manager of North America Direct-to-Consumer. .

The Nike Store is located in the former FW Woolworth Building on Woodward, sandwiched between the Hudson Café and Moosejaw.

The 22,000 square foot store features two levels of apparel and footwear for men, women and children.

The Nike Detroit Community Store is located at 1261 Woodward Detroit, Michigan 48226

Opening hours: Monday to Saturday from 11:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and Sunday from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.

I took a bunch of photos and a video during my visit today, so enjoy.
