Sneaks Up 5 – Goody Two Shoes

Yesterday, I attended and participated in my first Sneaks Up event – Sneaks Up 5 – in San Antonio. The event was popping with great designs in both sneakers and clothing. I ran into some amazing brands – old friends and new – like Loyal KNG, Grits, Fresh Kaufee, Nerdy FreshPur3ly Root3d, Kaught Looking, Nice Kicks and more. See the whole thing below from my angle!

Goody Two Shoes

In 12 days, San Antonio will pop off its fifth Sneaks Up event. On April 17th, from 2-7pm, join us for FREE at the Backstage Live center.

Who is “us,” you ask? Well, me (The Good Child), Loyal KNG, Grits, and MANY more, as well as music performances and – duh – sneakers galore.

This will be the fourth major event for The Good Child brand and I’m so excited that I’ve made not one but TWO exclusive t-shirts for you to choose from at the event.

I present to you Goody Two Shoes:

(Option one: Classic Vans on aqua – my personal favorite for years)

(Option two: Air Jordan III Black Cement on teal – for all you sneakerheads)

Both t-shirts come on 100% fine jersey cotton made by American Apparel in the USA. The artwork was printed right here in the DFW – just like all of The Good Child styles. Stay fresh AND guilt-free!

These styles will be available first at Sneaks Up and any remaining inventory will go online April 19th. REMEMBER: no style is ever produced again outside of the original run – and these two runs will have only TWENTY-FIVE each!

Stay good, be humble, and I’ll see you next weekend!

Always Coming Up…NEXT!

Phew! It’s been a Good spring so far! Since February, I’ve been on my grind – producing a new style (or two) and attending some major events. Last week, I was at Style X – a fashion portion of SXSW. Before that, you probably caught me at the We Are 1976 No. ’76 shindig. Somewhere in between, I was also traveling and doing research for my day job (which was 100% as rad as The Good Child adventures). I have quite a lot of photos to share with you all, but first – here’s news on where I’ll be NEXT:

San Antonio’s Sneaks Up 5!

San Antonio Sneaks Up 5SA Sneaks Up 5 will be at the Backstage Live center in San Antonio on Sunday, April 17th from 2-7pm. I will be set up with the existing The Good Child merchandise as well as a new, special edition tee titled “Goody Two Shoes” (preview coming soon). Remember, these styles are only produced once — when they are sold out, they’re gone (and most mediums have left the shelf already)! The Good news? Look out for a summer series release coming this May or June, including some girls and big boy sizes!

(You can RSVP for SA Sneaks Up 5 here).

After SA Sneaks Up 5 and the summer series release, you can find me at Kixpo 2011.

Kixpo 2011This August, Kixpo will be presented in none other than the new Cowboys Stadium! This is going to be GOOD. This is my first time working with the Deadstock crew and I’m pretty psyched to be a part of such a large, local, creative event. More details coming soon, but forecast looks as follows: sneakers, music, sneakers, t-shirts, and more sneakers.

These warm months ahead will be filled with so many fresh ideas and apparel that I can hardly think of anything else! I hope to see you out there and thank you for all the love so far.

Where’s The Good Child?

This month and on into the spring time, I’ll be out at various events representing The Good Child brand. I have put all of my passion, time, and money into The Good Child lifestyle and now I want to meet the supporters who have helped make the brand a reality. If you find yourself at any of the following events, feel free to stop by my table and introduce yourself. We can talk all day via Twitter, etc., but there’s nothing quite like a real handshake and exchanging Good stories in person.

Thank YOU for all of your support and I hope to see you out there:

This Saturday, Feb. 5th, from 2pm-6pm, catch me at the Sneaker Bowl XLV with top notch local brands like Unkommon Kolor (so, so dope). There will be sneakers, sneakers, t-shirts, t-shirts, and more sneakers. Dallas weather is warming up on Saturday, so throw off your Snuggie and get out of the house to see some amazing products!

The following weekend, Friday, Feb. 11th, bump into me at We Are 1976 for their No. ’76 Special Edition T-shirt & Album Release Shindig. I’ll be releasing a special and super limited edition t-shirt just for this event! I am flattered to be releasing my new creation alongside brands like Fresh Kaufee, Loyal KNG, Nerdy Fresh, and MORE. Even Dallas’ own Marty B will be in attendance. Lastly, and most excitedly, DJ Sober will be dropping his new album right then and there! You DON’T want to miss this party; you DO know how Vynsie, Jully, & Derek throw down, right?

Moving forward into warmer months…if my money is right, (contract need$ to go in by Feb. 25th), you can find me amongst HUGE brands at Austin’s StyleX (a SXSW fashion event). This portion of SXSW runs March 18th-19th at the Austin Convention Center. I’m looking to showcase alongside brands like We Are the Process, GoodWoodNYC, and so many more. StyleX is a pop-up retail showcase that brings music and fashion together. To make this incredible event a reality for The Good Child brand, I am saving every penny. Like We Are The Process told me (via Twitter), “You gotta spend $ to make $.” I like that, and I love Austin. See me there?

Anybody looking forward to San Antonio’s Sneaks Up 5? I AM. This event is set to happen on Sunday, April 17th at the San Antonio Backstage Live center. I was pretty bummed out that I missed last year’s event, so it’s even more exciting that not only will I be in attendance this time around – but, I’ll also be representing The Good Child brand! If you’re there, stop by my table and say what’s up! Also, show me your kicks! I’ll have a little somethin’ somethin’ for you if your kicks are THE most worthy. I’ll also be dropping a special t-shirt just for the event. Stay tuned on that!

PHEW! That’s it for now!

After giving life to The Good Child brand late, late last October, I made some t-shirts. Then, I made some stickers. Then, I made a GoodWoodNYC necklace. None of that mattered; the apparel doesn’t matter – it’s the story behind the brand and the supporters, the FAMILY, that come together consequently. You all are my foundation and the only reason I keep doing what I do. I hope to meet some of you in person at a few of the events I listed above!

Sincerely,

Heather, The Good Child
