Two-Time History Making Athlete Santia Deck Hosts Tronus Launch at Champs Sports in Lenox Mall

This past weekend, Santia Deck, history-making alumnae member of the Women’s Football League Association and the owner of TRONUS, the first and only athletic footwear company owned by a female athlete, launched her TRONUS footwear line at the Champs Sports store located inside of the Lenox Mall, Atlanta’s premier shopping destination.

During this 3-hour event, fans of all ages alongside members of the media and Atlanta’s elite filled the store to show support for Santia and the launch of her TRONUS brand.

Selling out of most of the store’s TRONUS inventory during this high-energy event, fans of the 2-time history-making athlete not only purchased these one-of-a-kind shoes, but got the opportunity to meet the influencer up close, take a selfie, grab an autograph, and receive free custom TRONUS black and gold masks, bracelets, and comfy socks.

Some of the celebrities and VIPs that stopped by the event to show their support included DJ Greg Street from V-103 FM, Oshea Russell from Tyler Perry’s “All The Queen’s Men”, social media influencer Theo Wisseh, fitness guru FredricO from FDL Compound, and Josh Ali from the Atlanta Falcons.

“Our footwear launch is much bigger than me,” says TRONUS founder Santia Deck. “For me, it’s about the next generation of young Black women coming up that might not know that owning their own athletic footwear line is possible. I need them to understand that the sky is the limit. When I created this line in 2020, I would dream of days like this and pray for partnerships like the one we have created with Champs Sports. And now look at us. And we still have so much further to go as a brand.”

Last year, TRONUS partnered with the Champs Sports Pembroke Pines store to officially launch the footwear brand in South Florida.
