Nashville, Tennessee (WTVF) — From Antioch, Breion Dixon is a TSU graduate who toured and appeared on Netflix until COVID was in the spotlight.
“This happened and it paused my career as an entertainer and hip-hop artist,” said the rapper going on “2’Live Bre.” “I experienced depression when I was already experiencing depression, but I experienced deeper depression when the COVID hit. As an artist, many opportunities failed.”
He had no place to turn because he had no creative exit. But the answer was right at his feet.
“I had never made shoes, but I had the creative ability to see the vision I wanted for shoes,” Dixon said.
He was contacted by a shoe company with a purpose.
“They taught me their mission and the purpose of designing shoes, which was to make a difference in the community,” he said.
Now he is making a difference in his community.Part of shoes When a shopper uses the code “Breion 15”, sales are directed to his mental health base for young people.
“That’s why I’m doing this. I’m not making shoes to make crazy money, as if one shoe with a story is really changing the community.”
Like the butterflies he designed for each sneaker, it’s an evolutionary story. “It’s just right to help the kids fly their wings,” he said.
