In honor of the Distinct Life x PUMA Inspire Pack release on Dec. 7, the Footlocker Power Store in Eastpointe, MI became the hosting site for the official Inspire Day celebration. Highlighting Detroit’s unique background and community, the event featured guest speakers who have impacted and influenced the culture in multiple ways including Earlly Mac, Tony Whlgn, Ty Mopkins, Angela Yee, and Big Sean.
Rick Williams, founder of Distinct Life Creative Agency, lead the day’s events while also sharing his unique experiences and expertise with all in attendance. Distinct Life took over Footlocker for the entire day as Inspire Day kicked off with a We Run 313 session as well as a Trap Yoga session. Pre-registered attendees were able to participate in Eric Lowry’s Shoe Design workshop, where they received a 3D PUMA Palace Guard Shoe model to customize and paint as they please.
Later, an insightful conversation on marketplace valuation with Dean Brody and Stella Safari set the bar high for speakers to follow. Entrepreneurs in attendance were able to gain great knowledge and advice on the local, entertainment, and fashion business while networking with other professionals in the area.
Inspired by Detroit’s creative and distinct culture, the “inspire pack” promotes the honest truth that “Detroit Inspires the World.” With suede and leather on their uppers, the black and yellow two-shoe sneaker pack is available exclusively at Footlocker.com and at select store locations in Detroit. The shoes feature statements, such as “Detroit Inspires the World” and “Inspire,” that shine a light upon Detroit’s major impact on everything from style to music.
