Using Sneakers To Help Foster Kids In Need
When following your passion leads to collabs with Nike, The Hundreds, and more.
The past couple of weeks have been a blur and quite frankly, I need a vacation. However, as a much-needed break from the grind, I was able to talk with Liz Beecroft for an episode of the Outside The Box Podcast. Liz is someone who has been able to turn two of her passions, social work and sneakers, into collaborations with Nike, The Hundreds, UNKNWN, and many more to come. Our conversation was equal parts a therapy session for myself and a mutual admiration session for Allen Iverson.
But beyond all of that, one of the things that impressed me the most was how Liz is able to use sneakers to build relationships with the kids in foster care that she works with. I’m always impressed with how selfless people can be and that is definitely a quality that Liz has mastered in her parallel journeys as a social worker and sneakerhead.
Hope everyone has a great weekend! ✌️+❤️
