Buffalo Native Tiona Deniece Shows Us How She Likes To Kick It
Do you remember standing in line early in the morning waiting to get the newest release of sneakers like Air Force Ones and Jordans? If you didn't I'm certain you were not a sneakerhead or lover. I can remember getting up early to stand in line at Finish Line, Foot Locker, or Champs sneaker store with my best friends so we can go back to school fresh the next day for all to see that we "copped" the new releases. Wearing these sneakers the next day were like badges of honor, you was in the cool kids club if you were able to get a pair each release. It showed your commitment, tenacity, and in my words your Go Gettaness to make sure you got them.
Well, today this love is still relevant for many especially Tiona Deniece. Born and raised in Buffalo, NY Tiona is a Singer, Song Writer, Influence, and sneaker connoisseur.
