Strategy and Execution

The Story:

Quavo came to the Finish Line team with a big idea. He wanted to hook up the kids at his old high school like never before. We took him up on the challenge and created 15 total pairs for the world, all going to the lucky kids at Berkmar High. Quavo pulled up to the game in his custom new McLaren 720S supercar. He fired up a selfie video complete with FInish Line shout outs, and escorted the team into the locker room to check out their new footwear. They freaked. Quavo posted. LeBron freaked. The internet freaked. LeBron asked for a pair and Quavo delivered on behalf of Finish Line...on national TV.

Some of it was planned, some of it was luck, here's how it all went down...

Product Strategy: Partner with one of the most relevant footwear customizers on the planet (Mache) to create custom sneakers that could not be ignored, by anyone

Content Strategy: Partner with Quavo and The Migos to build custom LeBron XVs for the members of the varsity team at Quavo's old high school

Media Strategy: Partner with an exclusive roster of media partners to provide the content directly to lead the editorial extensions and continue to throw gas on the fire as the content spreads

Implementation Strategy: Allow Quavo and The Migos to lead the story and act as the authentication that extends the content forward

Finish Line Channel Strategy: Use all of our omni channel touch points to extend the story and show the power of our integrated multi-platform brand engine
