After an exhilarating 10-round penalty shootout at Sporting Park, Sporting Kansas City became 2013 MLS Cup champions. We're really stoked for our friend and brand ambassador, CJ Sapong, for this historic step in his career. We'd like to take this chance to revisit our journey with him this past summer in creating his Stay True collection. Prior to sketching any ideas, I spoke extensively with CJ and it was clear early on that he's a special individual. In a few conversations he'd taught me so much about life and how to always stay positive; to stay true. We wanted the collection to reflect his personality and his beliefs; we gave him free reign in creating the pieces and we think the results reflect that. When we flew to Kansas City to flesh out the designs, I became even more proud that we had chosen him to be our first brand ambassador. Take a second to check out the two videos below to get a glimpse of how the entire thing went down.
