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.

After a few too many Google Alerts for "shockoe denim best website ever", it's probably time to share some of the mostly organic press and accolades.

"If it was the designers' intention to position the brand as being a marriage of traditional American values and sharp contemporary styling, then their typographic choices have, by and large, worked."
