not really bad weather .. but work still got cancelled

i live so close to xi men .. u can just walk around in alleys and find some good stuff .. just need patience.. i think they alley where remix is found isnt horrible .. or u can go over to where kingshop, beetle bespoke, unity is ..

if someone try to explain how to get to places in xi men .. i think its hard to follow

Alright, sweet. Thanks for the info. I should have checked this sooner, I missed out so many things.

Last year, I went looking for Bape at it's old location, never found it since it had moved, but I ran into Leftfoot. And I never took the liberty to look around. Damn shame.

I know you can find some hard to find SB's in Taiwan, but aren't most of them insanely over priced, even compared to finding them in the U.S.?

Finally hit up Ximen today, no pick ups tho.

Apery is good, spent a while looking for it.

Nothing new in Herr, dude was pretty chill though. Not a lot of stuff that interested me, they have the Thunder IVs if your interested though.

There's a shop that brizzle hasn't listed, it's called IDENTITY and it's right in front of Herr. Had clothes like Stussy, and a handful of SBs, Heinys, Calis, Medicoms, Shanghais. Also had the IV/XIX and VII/XVI packages left.

Couldn't find Bamboo or Beetle, so gonna be back again soon.

Didn't ask the price, wasn't too interested in it.

Not a lot of SBs, only one I remember are Cinco de Mayos.

Savage :

I'll keep an eye out for it.

That's what I wondered too. Herr is like the only store that doesn't keep their shoes wrapped up. There are other stores too, but they're air conditioned, and nice and cool.

The store Shock Value, embarrassed me.

I didn't know the door was like, part of the wall. And the girl inside was laughing at me while I looked like a dumbass trying to find the door. tongueface

She was cute though. &)

Btw, do you guys all speak Mandarin?

I'm not fluent at all, but I speak a little. Kinda bad cause my parents are from here lol.

Uh, there are a couple of Nike stores that sell all the recent SBs, nothing really good though.

Shock Value had a pair of White Preme Blazers. They also had Sakura AF1s, Paul Browns, and others on display, not sure if they were for sale though.

I'm leaving for Thailand on the 12th, will be there for 4 days, then I'll come back and stay until the 21st, then I'll be back home in Cali.

Gonna be hittin up the Zhongshiao area today. Hopefully some pick ups blushing

Have you guys tried that beer flavored green tea yet? It's fk good lol. My mom told me to stop though, since there's a little alcohol in it (I'm only 15).

Alright, well just got back from Zhongshiao, some pretty neat stores. There's a store called Puff Nation that's right next to Undercover. It carries its own brand, and has some pretty sick designs, picked up a Tee from them.

There's also a store called Kream thats next to Sense Organ, it has brands like Mighty Healthy, Alife, Hundreds, and Diamond Supply.

Btw, is Trinity still around? I couldn't find them at all.

Hah, hella cute girls work the stores in the Zhongxiao area. Well, a lot cute girls in the Zhongxiao area anyways. blushing

I only know Taiwanese and English. Although having spent a couple months in Taiwan last summer, I probably attained some Mandarin language skills of a toddler. Hah.

Haha, definitely agree on the girls man.

Zhongxiao > Ximen.

Savag3, where is Invincible at?

Invincible is between Undercover and Summit on that map. Just walk "right" (looking down at the map) on the same lane that Undercover is on and Invincible should be on the left after crossing that small intersection I believe.
