Hiding In Plain Sight
Richmond, the little just-slightly-Southern burg we call home, tends to be particular about who and what it celebrates. We love our underdogs and our "weirdos", yet we also star-gaze like champs. That leaves a lot of room in between, and we have some real superstars hiding here in plain sight, and Sean Wotherspoon / Round Two is one of the most (least?) prominent examples.
Sean Wotherspoon started Round Two, a sneaker and street style obsessed "men's boutique", right on here on Broad St. in 2013, and in such a small amount of time has grown to have stores in LA and New York, and to be considered the premier source for vintage footwear for a whos-who of urban trendsetters.
Sean is not simply a walking footwear Wikipedia, he's graduated to a bona fide shoe designer after winning Nike's Vote Foreward Air Max 97 competition by a landslide.
Designed to age and fray with grace, Sean's Air Max's are a beautiful blend of vintage and future – simultaneously loud and understated.
We look forward to seeing what Sean has in store for fashion, design, and retail, and will do our small part to shine a brighter light on this star rising out of Richmond.
