The day after PSA came through, the executives of the WNBA Los Angeles team, the LA Sparks, and player Erica Wheeler stopped by! They brought over 50 students from the local LA area to accompany Erica Wheeler on their exclusive tour of Sneakertopia. During their tour, the LA SparKids dance team surprised the group with a performance. In addition, each student received a complimentary care package, courtesy of Erica Wheeler’s sponsor, Adidas. Erica was also nice enough to do a signing for the students and accompanying visitors.
Erica Wheeler is a guard for the LA Sparks and became the first-ever undrafted player to be named All-Star Game MVP. While at Sneakertopia, she talked about her impressive sneaker closet, which features almost any type of shoe you could imagine! She also spoke on her sponsorship with Adidas, a deal that has been mutually beneficial for both Erica and the brand. Wheeler mentioned Adidas’s endless show of love, from giving free gear to Erica’s basketball camp attendees (something she specifically said was important to her), to always asking for her opinion on the latest basketball shoe releases. Getting to meet Erica was a great experience, she is definitely a real sneakerhead and a truly genuine person!
It goes without saying, but Sneakertopia is already looking forward to our next event with the Sparks. Stay tuned to our insta @gosneakertopia, as well as the LA Sparks insta @la_sparks for the latest details regarding our joint-ventures!
