E. Scott Morris (center grey shirt), a 20 year veteran of the sneaker industry, says the first World Sneaker Championships will become "a part of American sneaker mythology," and likens students to superheroes-in-training. "They're becoming the Captain Americas, the Wonder Womans the Supermans. They're learning how to fly, and they have their mentor in D'Wayne. He's Professor X. He's showing them, 'This is what you have to do if you're going to be a hero.'"
