The Story of Atlanta's Own Walter's Clothing
Everyone connected to @TheShoeGame's social feeds or anyone in Atlanta has heard by now that the founder, Walter Strauss, of historic Atlanta mom and pop shop, Walter's, passed July 25, 2018, at age 94.
Storyteller Gavin Godfrey reached out to me and a few other ATLiens when he started working on a piece about Walter's for Atlanta Magazine. I was honored to share my early Walter's memories and the shop's importance/influence to Atlanta (and sneaker culture).
There's a lot to Walt's early beginnings that most people in the city don't know. Walt was a real one, and you'll understand why once you read the Atlanta Mag article. Class is in session. RIP, Walt!
