The Matt Kiatipis Collab

By Seb Salois

We had the privilege and immense pleasure of meeting the incredible Matt Kiatipis.

For those who may not be familiar with him, Matt is a former NCAA and professional basketball player who has made quite a name for himself on platforms like YouTube, TikTok, and Instagram, thanks to his confident and explosive style.

But beyond his online persona, Matt is truly an exceptional human being.

We had the opportunity to organize a meet and greet at the brand new FRRAP gym, an athletic performance facility they were in the process of opening. It was the perfect setting for us to connect with Matt.

As a high-level athlete himself, Matt felt right at home in the gym environment. We engaged in a vibrant conversation that lasted for about an hour. We delved into his journey, discussed memorable moments like Drake reaching out to him, explored the world of basketball, and, unsurprisingly, touched upon the topic of business.

If you only focus on his cocky style, you’ll miss out on seeing just how intelligent and insightful this man truly is. Our chat revealed that there’s no surprise behind his remarkable growth on social media—he possesses a unique combination of talent, personality, and business acumen.

That hour flew by in an instant, but it was filled with valuable insights and gems that we’ll cherish.

In true We Run the Town fashion, we couldn’t let this special moment pass without creating something truly exceptional. We designed a special edition drop exclusively for Matt, limited to just six pieces.

The design is derived from a screenshot we took of one of his striking Instagram posts. After a few artistic touches in Photoshop, we created something truly remarkable.

When we presented the pieces to Matt, his excitement matched our own. It was a genuine thrill to see his enthusiasm and appreciation for the collaboration.

Until we meet again, we extend our heartfelt gratitude to Matt for his time and contribution. Keep on running the town, Matt, and we’ll continue to support you every step of the way!
