If you're a frequent reader of Sneaker Report, you probably have a passion for sports and the gear it takes to make you mean-green-machine athlete you are.

We just wanted to take a moment on this fine Friday to give #props to our resident soccer cleat and meggings expert, Julian Patterson, on accomplishing big things this week.

Take a note from Julian and set a goal, make a move, challenge yourself and conquer your passion before 2014 is over. You can make it happen, and hopefully you'll continue to ask us all of your gear questions as you go.

Six years ago I gave up playing soccer competitively. I suffered a season-ending injury my junior year at Colby and hung up my boots. Six months ago I got the itch to lace 'em up again. I hit my guy @lord_pants and he got me a trial with one of the top teams in NYC. Long story short, I ended up getting called up to the squad. Last night we won the @BoweryPremNYC title, and for that moment we were Kings of New York. We conquered the biggest, most competitive city in the world. I'm lucky to share the pitch with such a talented and gritty group of players—Bowery Football Club. I say all this to say it's never too late to rediscover your passion. And when you rediscover your passion, never let go of it. ✌️
