openerAs you may recall, I spent last weekend in Atlanta for the Converse ATL Takeover, which featured basketball, parties, music and the chance to see Converse’s next line of hoop shoes (only some of which we’re allowed to show or talk about at this point.)

During the week my PR contact with Converse sent me a bunch of photos of the weekend which were a whole better than my Blackberry joints. I downloaded the best of them so you all could get a better idea of what the Converse events were like.

This page will have Friday night’s party, next page will have Saturday’s Band of Ballers, where the ball was mediocre but the hip-hop sightings were outstanding.
