About The Founder
Major Williams, a product of humble beginnings, emerged as a beacon of resilience and compassion, shaped by his upbringing in the South Dallas Housing projects during the challenging decades of the 1980s and 90s. With an unwavering commitment to excellence, he fostered a keen eye for the finer things, cultivating not only a love for sneakers but an unwavering dedication to quality.
Reflecting on his journey, Major fondly recalls his modest yet profound roots, marked by the iconic Air Jordan III release in 1988, a symbol of aspiration in his neighborhood. His persistence and determination paved the way for him to acquire a cherished pair of worn Jordans, despite the odds stacked against him. From these experiences, Major not only developed an unwavering resilience but an unyielding sense of empathy, recognizing the transformative power of a well-worn pair of shoes and the impact it could have on someone's life.
In the years following, Major's unwavering dedication to service has seen him actively collaborating with esteemed nonprofit organizations and state agencies, leaving an indelible mark on the lives of countless individuals.

Through his brainchild, Major Kicks For Kids, Inc. (MKFK), Major seeks to redefine the narrative of philanthropy, emphasizing the essential role that quality footwear plays in fostering a sense of dignity and pride.
