I’ll never forget the first time I was gifted a pair of sneakers. I felt special ! So when adidas asked what I wanted to do for New York, I said let’s gift everyone. To me the most influential person doesn’t always have the most followers; i don’t believe in all of that nonsense. You’re all special to me :)
