Megan Ann Wilson

Creative Entrepreneur | @shegotgame

United States

My name is Megan Ann Wilson aka @shegotgame and I’m a Canadian creative consultant, writer, stylist, and designer. I work with brands, athletes and agencies using an alchemic approach melding style, sneakers, sports and sustainability.

My professional athlete clientele includes NBA, NFL, MLB and overseas athletes. I’ve also served as a creative director and stylist on fashion projects for the Atlanta Hawks, Toronto Raptors, Nike, Air Jordan and Reebok. I’ve consulted and collaborated on brand direction, design, curation and strategy for major companies and agencies like Cornerstone, Ole Creative and Game 7 Marketing. 

I’m also a featured athlete fashion and branding expert for outlets like CNN, GQ, Esquire, High Snobiety, Bleacher Report and NBATV and I’ve written for outlets like The Guardian, ESPN, Men’s Fitness and Complex. I’ve spoken on panels for major retailers like Nordstrom, and events like NBA All-Star Weekend and The Colorways festival. 

Previously I was the lead stylist and head of product development and design for The Veneka, a sustainable capsule wardrobe start-up. I also starred on YouTube Originals’ Lace Up: The Ultimate Sneaker Challenge, a reality competition show. 

I recently relaunched The SheGotGame Podcast and Newsletter dedicated to demystifying the world of sustainable fashion.

Based in New York City, I aim to collaborate on projects marrying culture, sports and environmentalism with a special interest in circularity and entrepreneurship. My goal is to make fashion more accessible, equitable and educational for all.

Sneaker Convos and Shroom Shoes

After a not-totally planned - albeit necessary break - I'm back! It's been a wild few months - I moved into my own apartment, had to apply (and be approved for) a visa, scaled up some work projects, decided to become obsessive about upcycling DIY home furniture - and even adopted a dog!

We've made it to yet another Monday and I'm happy (and a little nervous) to announce the first episode of The shegotgame Podcast is out! It's been a true labour of love - I can now honestly say I've put my broadcasting degree back to work.
Taking It To The Rack

THE NBA IS THE MOST PROGRESSIVE OF THE BIG FOUR SPORTS LEAGUES. It’s the leader in social and digital media, and it embraces the personal style and individuality of its athletes. There are few times where this is more noticeable than New York Men's Fashion Week. Muscling out pop stars and supermodels, the NBA is producing the biggest fashion influencers in men's fashion, with its statuesque players, big budgets, and flair for competition. Dressing in the NBA is about maintaining traditions...

Power Of Sneakers Unites Elena Delle Donne And Innovative Fan

Imagine buying the newest pair of signature shoes from your favorite athlete. Now imagine not being able to put them on by yourself. That imaginary situation was reality for one 19-year-old man. Matthew Walzer, who has cerebal palsy, has limited mobility that makes it nearly impossible to put shoes on without assistance.

Sneaker Culture Isn't Fully Inclusive of Women, and That's a Problem

I've had a thing for sneakers since grade school, studied athletic footwear design and work in footwear, yet I'm always asked, "So, who got you into sneakers?" It's always assumed that a male influence is needed when, in reality, I turned my father into a sneakerhead and my male friends call me for sneaker plugs.

We Tried It -- Compression socks for running

What I love most about running is that all you need to get started are your two feet and a heartbeat. It's one of the most travel-friendly sports since there's minimal gear to pack and you can check out the sights and sounds of a new city while getting in your cardio.

Damn, Ballers: The Vans Trend is Taking Over the NBA | Green Label

Last month, Vans celebrated its 50th anniversary. Once known for being a skateboarding staple, the brand is now a fashion favorite, especially (and surprisingly) amongst NBA athletes, who are more often associated with basketball sneakers than the minimalist skateboarding staple. Vans go up to size 14, meaning tall guys with big feet are able to rock the simple sneakers.

The Drop: Champs Sports

Toronto has long been under the radar for the average American. However, with NBA All-Star Weekend here, the world is finally watching the (41)6. As a Torontonian, I’ve seen attitudes change about my hometown in the six years I’ve been traveling for work. Toronto has gone from being known as Kardinal Offishall’s “T-Dot” to Drake‘s “6ix” with countless Instagram captions about running through my city with your woes. For awhile, it was hard to peg what Toronto’s style identity was because...
