Description: In our interviews we spoke to Angelo, Shawn, & Brandon, the grandson of Walt himself. Each of them describes different perspectives of the same experience. To become a Walter's employee you must be an Atlanta Public school student enrolled in a work-study program. This creates a unique dynamic between the customers & sales associates. Shawn described the environment to be similar to a barbershop. You may have been shopping with your particular salesman since high school. They call you when a new release is in the store & even hold your size if necessary. You don't come to the store to talk strictly about sneakers; you come to visit a friend. There's a level of sentiment that comes with a purchase from Walter's that you can't get elsewhere.
