Once again, the end of the year is a good time to reflect on the past to see all the things that have transgressed in a years time. PEER*D Clothing managed to have another successful year. It got off to a fast start as we were able to get fashion icon Teyana Taylor and Grammy nominated song writer K. Briscoe in a PEER*D shirt. From there we managed to make our way on the silver screen as Short Dawg of Young Money rocked our White/Black silhouette tee on stage during a performance of “Bedrock” on MTV’s annual Spring Break specials. Next, we attended Johnny Cupcakes’ Suitcase Tour and got to speak to Johnny Cupcakes personally. He is someone that we here at PEER*D look to emulate, and him recognizing our brand was a boost of confidence. In August, our sponsored artist RO.A dropped his debut mixtape “Lowkey Famous.” (if you haven’t heard this yet you can check it out at datpiff. I guarantee that you won’t be disappointed). Lastly, we closed out the year on the event standpoint, with a feature in TQ Branding’s “The Show.” This event was outstanding, as we networked and forged some good relationships.
From the product and release side, we released the Red/White silhouette tee and our slogan tee “Shoes Fly Don’t Bother Me” in August (which was featured on TheShoeGame.com). Then October saw the release of our Frankenstein mask sweatshirts. Be on the lookout for news and information on upcoming releases from PEER*D as continue to establish our brand and expand our business. We are entering the new year with a renewed focus and determination. 2010 was a good year, and we plan on making 2011 GREAT!
HAPPY NEW YEARS FROM THE PEER*D FAMILY!!
and remember to remain PERFECTLY WEIRD,

This past Wednesday, December 22, 2010, TheShoeGame had their 4 Year Anniversary at the Nike Running Store in Lenox Square Mall in Atlanta, Ga. This was an event that the PEER*D CREW attended last year and this year proved to be another fun-filled experience. The anticipation for the event grew and was amplified by the potential to win a free pair of the Cool Grey Air Jordan XIs that were being given away. The line to get in wrapped around the mall as people waited for a raffle ticket to potentially win one of the 19 shoes that were being given out. TSG managed to put together a successful event. Inside the store the artist, Jermaine Clarke showcased his paintings of shoes from memory. Aside from all the creative giveaways, a couple of Atlanta area celebrities stopped by to support the event. We managed to take pictures and talk with G.O.O.D. Music signee Cyhi the Prynce and DJ Gregg Street. This was an entertaining and interactive event for the Atlanta sneaker community, and we look forward to putting together events similar to this in the future. Check out the pics from the event below.

TQ Branding’s “The Show” took place this past Thursday at Cloud IX in Atlanta, Georgia. This event was successful as upcoming brands were given the venue to network and display their products for the Atlanta area crowd. PEER*D received a tremendous amount of support from the PEER*D CREW who all came dressed in their PEER*D attire. The PEER*D booth was also a hot spot as we ran out of business cards and flyers and even passed out RO.A “Lowkey Famous” mixtape for those in attendance. We couldn’t ask for a better turnout for our first experience in this type of event, and we look forward to being apart of much more events like these that help us broadcast and advertise our brand. Once again we want to thank TQ Branding for giving us this opportunity.
Be sure to check out all the pics from the event below. Continue reading
